Bona Mugabe hubby revealed

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe’s son-in-law has been identified as Sam Chikore, a pilot with the United Arab Emirates Airline, who hails from Headlands, Manicaland.

REPORT BY EVERSON MUSHAVA/JOHN NYASHANU

The traditional marriage ceremony took place at Mugabe’s rural home in Zvimba last week.

A close source to the First Family told NewsDay yesterday that Chikore, who comes from a Christian background, married Bona in the presence of close family members.

Chikore is said to be a member of the Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa.

The Chikore family paid a bride prize, but NewsDay could not establish how much was paid or the number of cattle the President would receive.

“He (President Mugabe) did not charge much. He said he was, more than anything else, interested in seeing that the new couple lived happily together first,” said the source, confirming Mugabe’s statements in an interview with South African Broadcasting Corporation journalist Dali Tambo that he was keen to see a successful marriage for his “obedient and hardworking daughter”.

“A delegation of six people from the Chikore family came for the traditional function,” the source said. An aunt to the Mugabe family, Regina Gata, is said to have played a crucial role in co-ordinating the marriage ceremony, according to the source.

Efforts to confirm the development and to get further details about the marriage from Gata were fruitless.

However, Uzumba MP-elect Simbaneuta Mudarikwa, who was on Wednesday quoted by this paper confirming he had taken part in the ceremony, yesterday distanced himself from the proceedings saying he knew nothing about the marriage and that the function he had alluded to was that of his own daughter.

“I have no role to play in Bona’s marriage and let me state it clearly that I played no role. I don’t know anything about that marriage,” he said.

Asked on what he meant when he responded positively to NewsDay’s inquiries over the marriage on Wednesday, Mudarikwa said he had assumed the marriage questions were about his daughter whom he said was also about to tie the knot.

  1. Congrats Bona and Sam. May God bless your union.Proud of you Mrs Chikore

    1. Congrats Bona, have a sweet and everlasting marriage. May u have your own way of living on earth not that of Comrades.

  2. inga vana Sam anovada Bona

  3. All the best Bona and Sam. With a principled and disciplined father in President Mugabe, Bona needed to put more effort to go wrong than get it right. Mai Mugabe needs to work harder pachikomana ichi chisinganyanyoda chikoro, Chatunga. Daughters are usually reflect more of the father’s personality while sons tend to reflect more of mama’s parenting skills.

    1. Principled and displined father OMG.

  4. For Mrs Gata,your motherhood creed is more than a tongue can tell. Continue to do the good work. I have admired the kind of spirit that you have since i knew you from no49 st andrews hatified ku bible study. Thanks to Pastor Chibagidi again.
    God bless you

  9. Sithwelekanzima

    Now that we know your future husband wena Bona, we await the children to be born out of this marriage so that we can make sure that you, your brothers, husband and children pay a heavy price for the Gukurahundi sins of your father, in much the same way we in Mthwakazi are still being made to pay a heavy price for the 1800s tribal wars of King Mzilikazi!!

    This is what real girls should do, to have patience, discipline and obedience. Combining these three ingrediences, a good product is produced. Young girls should emulate, not to rush into marriage but to wait and ask God for a good partner.

    1. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

      Sorry, wanted to say ingredients not ingrediences. Oh, its a LAPSUS PENNAE.

    2. @ Willard:There is no patience displayed here , she is still very young for such a commitment. May be its’ a way of running away from her evil father.

  22. Why are people congratulating Bona and forgetting that she is not marrying herself? Ko dai Sam wacho asiri munhu kwaye akarerewa kwazvo pangadayi paneroora here nhasi? Vanhu veZanu you are brainless zvechokwadi, honestly I have seen stupidity sipping up to the deadwood of pre2008 cabinet as said by Gushungo. Give credit to both then we shall say people are happy for the couple and not for Robert Mugabe.

    1. washaya nyaya here mwanangu. itaka iwe makorokoto!

    2. Wakazvarepi. Hauzivi here kuti mwanasikana ndiye chete munhu anopururudzirwa kaviri paupenyu hwake sezvizvi;

  28. To those threatening the young couple Please preach love and not hatred so that we can have a peaceful future for our children. Well done for not charging your so inlaw too much father. The couples happiness is more important that heavy lobola.

  30. congratulations are in order

  31. And now just watch how much part of the $100 million anti-Morgan cash will work towards tarnishing the image of Tsvangirai’s daughters. All this just to please the Zanu pf fanatics. Watch this space. I would really love to see these young ladies of our top political figures having a piece of mind, but unfortunately there are plenty of overzealous nincompoops who will sleep dream and wake up thinking of how they can demonise the family of one political party leader. Kushaya zvekuita nehupenyu hwavo and a blatant waste of our meagre resources. Vezanu pf makorokoto kuti mwana aroorwa asi chitsuurai imbwa dzenyu dzisatarise muma pitikoti evanasikana vaMorgan.
