A 24 year-old Zimbabwean man Motion Nyoni has been left in shock after he found out that his long girlfriend he intend to marry is his father’s inheritance wife given by his late mother.
The whole drama was unveiled when Nyoni decided to make his relationship official to his parents as he took his girl Locadia Tshuma to his father’s place for official introductions before going ahead with Lobola negotiations.
However, when he took her home he learnt that his father was also Tshuma’s given husband.
Motion’s mother who passed away four years ago left a will giving Marandu permission to marry Tshuma when the time came.
With Tshuma being Marandu’s “inheritance wife” traditionally, Motion was meant to let go.
This worried Marandu who took the matter to Chief Njelele but sadly for him there won’t be a traditional court to solve the matter because Motion and Tshuma have since fled to South Africa.
“Marandu’s wife left a will before she died. In the will she stated that Marandu should marry her brother’s daughter after her death, and that daughter happens to be Locadia Tshuma who is also Motion’s long time girlfriend,” said Chief Njelele.
