GOSPEL musician Agatha Murudzwa last week did it the Hollywood way by tying the knot secretly with Mutare pastor Gwinyai Ndembera in the capital.
The low-key wedding was held at a yet-to-be-disclosed venue in Harare.
Although it is yet to be clarified, the marital bliss could soon be over as Ndembera is likely to be charged with bigamy.
Allegations are that Ndembera is still legally married to Chipinge’s Pastor Christine Maphosa.
According to a marriage certificate seen by NewsDay, Maphosa and Ndembera wedded on May 2, 2009.
A source close to the happenings yesterday confirmed the wedding was conducted secretly because of fear of a backlash by Maphosa.
“They decided to have a secret wedding because they were afraid of Maphosa. All the people from Chipinge were not allowed at all,” the source said.
Contacted for comment on Tuesday, Murudzwa downplayed the issue and said the wedding was low-key because of the small venue.
“How did you know that?” quipped Murudzwa.
“I thought you guys munotizika (could be evaded),” she said with a chuckle.
“I will avail it to the public at a concert we will organise soon. The venue was too small and we could not invite you media guys and other people.”
The Press On hitmaker maintained they invited a small number of people because of the small venue.
Maphosa declined to comment on the issue, but said she was still married to Ndembera.
“I will not comment on the matter, but I what I know is I am still married to Ndembera and the marriage certificate is there,” Maphosa said.
Efforts to get a comment from Ndembera, who is a pastor in Mutare, were fruitless as his mobile number was not reachable.
