Zimbabwe woman marries two men

02 March 2015, 16:06Marcus Mushonga

Harare - A Zimbabwean man has taken his 35-year old wife to court on allegations of bigamy after she allegedly married another man without having legally divorced her first husband.

The accused, identified as Trucas Manyonga, a resident at Masasa No.42 in Harare stood accused of bigamy before magistrate Gladys Moyo.

The accused woman was remanded out of custody until 5th March.

The accused woman denied the allegation saying she only knew her supposed to be second husband, Abedinico Munemo as a friend.

However, the second husband, told the packed court that he dated Manyonga in 2014 before they started staying together in January 2015.

"I did not know that she was legally married to another man! She never disclosed that information to me.

"I only came to know that she was married when her husband approached me on February 26," the second husband said.

The second husband, Munemo, said he was shocked to see a valid marriage certificate which proved that his wife Manyinga was married to Brisito Sande.

"We are staying together as husband and wife, and when Sande confronted me, I was shocked that I was living with a woman who had already wedded another man," Munemo said.
