Karimatsenga on Wednesday lost a High Court bid to stop Tsvangirai’s wedding with his fiancé, Elizabeth Macheka, set for this Saturday.
High Court Judge Antonia Guvava ruled that Karimatsenga’s initial application was misplaced because she was supposed to approach the Magistrates’ Courts where marriage officers are the ones empowered to cancel marriages.
Tafadzwa Hungwe, the lawyer representing Karimatsenga, said they had since made their objections at the Magistrates Courts as directed by Guvava.
“We have made our objections at the Magistrates Courts where the marriage licence was issued and we are going to make a follow-up,”said Hungwe.
Tsvangirai on 27 August got a marriage licence at the Magistrates’
Court to marry Macheka, the woman he got involved with after his relationship with Karimatsenga turned sour.
Tsvangirai had paid damages to Karimatsenga’s family as acknowledgement for impregnating her.
The marriage licence will enable him to get a marriage certificate if the wedding takes place.
Regional leaders and other dignitaries have already been invited to attend the ceremony.Post published in: News
