EXCLUSIVE: MORGAN Tsvangirai Marries LOVER ‘Splashes $36,000 On New BRIDE’

Out of the shadows ... Locadia sits behind Morgan Tsvangirai at a church conference last year
PRIME Minister Morgan Tsvangirai married his long-term lover, Locadia Karimatsenga Tembo, at a private ceremony in Mazowe on Monday 11/21.

Tsvangirai, 59, has been dating the wealthy 39-year-old commodity broker for nearly a year, but his aides have always denied they were dating.

Accordong to newzimbabwe, The MDC-T leader arrived at the neat countryside neighbourhood of Christon Bank near Mazowe just after 4PM local time for the traditional ceremony, accompanied by one of his brothers and more than a dozen aides.
Tsvangirai paid US$36,000 cash in bride price, before asking Tembo’s family for a wedding which was happily granted.

A source at the ceremony said: “Locadia’s family were all there and they were very very happy.

“She is expected to move in with Tsvangirai shortly and will be on his side on public engagements. In fact they have been playing happy family for a while living in the same house.”
Tsvangirai has been single since his wife, Susan – the mother of their six children – died in a car crash in March 2009.

Morgan's partner, Locadia Tembo's sprawling mansion in Greystone Park under construction
His new wife, who was born in Victoria Falls, has one child, a boy. She recently completed construction on a sprawling new mansion in Greystone Park, Harare.

Tembo made a fortune in commodity brokering. A company she owns had exclusive rights to supply all products sold at Makro wholesale stores and Jaggers.
She attended Queen Elizabeth Secondary School before enrolling for a business management diploma at Speciss College.

Tsvangirai’s inlaws have links to Zanu PF. Tembo’s sister, Beater Nyamupinga, is the Zanu PF MP for Goromonzi West. The MP’s husband, Felix Nyamupinga, is on the diplomatic service in Australia.
Tsvangirai’s decision to marry ends months of speculation, and stern denials from his aides.

But even as New Zimbabwe.com asked Tsvangirai’s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka to confirm his boss’ marriage, we were met with fresh denials.

“If you believe that you may as well believe that Jonathan Moyo is a white man. There is no truth in that,” Tamborinyoka said in a terse response.
But other Tsvangirai aides say it may be possible Tamborinyoka, who was not at the Mazowe ceremony, was not briefed.

“Very few people knew, apart from Tsvangirai’s family and those close aides who travel with him everywhere,” said one.

Since his wife’s death, Tsvangirai has been linked with a string of women.

In March this year, he was forced to pay out maintenance to and house a 23-year-old woman, Loreta Nyathi, who claimed he had neglected their three-month-old son.

      Don’t undermine the sanctity of marriage and reduce it to orgy levels nayimwe.Is it impossible for people to love unless there’s sex going on? she could be easy to trust, as a politician finding a trustworthy individual to confide in is tough, she could be accepting of his children and loving them like they were her own. those that have lost mothers and wives know what a hole such a loss leaves in the family and what a blessing it is to find someone willing to fill that position. maybe she comforted him during his grieving process and provided friendship, it’s hard to openly express grief as a man but it still doesn’t shield him from pain after all he is human. Maybe she stuck by him even when the media made him out to be a monster. “to love and to hold” for better and for worse, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad” “forsaking all others” till death do us part”. It’s not sex that fulfills such marriage vows but love! if you have a stroke tomorrow are you better off with a vagina or a loving wife to stay with your immobile self?

    Obviously the man paid so much money for a very beautiful and rich lady – does that make sense to some of you who don’t know that money is not everything??
    Ba Morgan, have a happy second-chance.

    Congratulations Mr Changirai for settling down.You’ve mourned your dear wife and God bless you.Some men don’t even stay for 1 or 2 years to mourn their spouses.It’s good for your children because they have some one to call mum.Only those of us who have lost mothers know the pain.May God give your wife wisdom and love for her step- children.

    Just because Zed guys insult in bemba does not mean that they are the only ones with this handicap. When ever I hear a white guy speak, especially from Africa,they are swearing and insulting and it sounds sweet. I am enjoying it.

  19. akapondo   November 23, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Yola 2000 so you want insults in english??????

  20. CHINYOKOLE   November 23, 2011 at 11:10 am

    the bride price depends on how much investment the parents have put in their daughter.

    180 million pa chinyofye mupamba tata.some people do not hav where to spend there hard earned cash.

  22. Katongo   November 23, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    I think Tumfweko should regulate the comments. There is too much vulgar language of late! We can criticize or form our own opinions but please insults is out!

  23. janet c   November 23, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    That’s what i am talking about ladies. Let the man fork out his hard earned cash for you – do not be used by men – ever!!! Whatever she ‘gives’ him is probably worth it. See men are so needy and gullible they NEED to have a woman – so we women determine the price tage!!!

  24. SILENCER   November 23, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Morgan has walked into Robert’s trap….he will be poisoned before elections. I suspect the lady is a secret security agent..mark my words!

    Imwe bafikala stop using insults here.Machende yanu mwaufwa.Me hate insults kwati libolo lyambwa.

  26. Nathan Iris   November 24, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    I am sure chalikwata ananyo akasuma.Morgan sokonized.Why paying such an amount ? Me i can`t.Probably it is coz my shaft is big enough to fit all pussy`s.Tight or untight bonse kunyenga without akuna matata.
