Mugabe’s Daughter Bona Breaks Off 9 Year Old Marriage With Simba

After nine years of marriage, Bona Mugabe, the esteemed daughter of former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, has officially filed for divorce from her husband Simbarashe Mutshuni Chikore.

While details about this unfortunate development are relatively limited, this publication has received information indicating that Bona Mugabe and her husband Simbarashe’s marital union has suffered irreparable damage.

There also seems to be no prospect of reconciliation and restoration of the couple’s marriage.

In the case filed under HC 1521/2023, the couple said they have lost all love and affection for one another and had been living apart for more than nine months.

Bona Mugabe moved out of their marital home to her parent’s residence in Borrowdale while Simba remained in Mount Pleasant.

Simba and Bona, who were said to be deeply in love at the time, exchanged wedding vows in 2014.

Their wedding ceremony, which was no ordinary event, was held at Robert Mugabe’s Blue Roof mansion in the leafy suburb of Borrowdale, Harare.

While the exact cost of the wedding has never been disclosed to the public, several sources have estimated that it may have cost more than a whopping US$1 million. The wedding was attended by local political and business bigwigs, as well as regional leaders, given Robert Mugabe’s local and regional status.

The wedding was financed by the couple’s family, friends, and relatives, as well as contributions from well-known public figures.

Now that divorce is on the table for Bona Mugabe and Simba Chikore, the public wonders how they will resolve the issue of property.

For years, the couple lived together at a house located on Quorn Avenue in Mount Pleasant. The house was a wedding present from Bona’s father Robert Mugabe who once lived in it in 1980 as he prepared to become Prime Minister.

However, after moving to Zimbabwe House and State House, Mugabe gifted the property to his daughter and son-in-law. Simba and Bona were building a mansion which was reportedly valued at US$39 million.

It remains to be seen how they will deal with the issue of child custody and maintenance given that they have three children together.
