Sharon Macheso files for divorce

HARARE - Sharon Macheso, daughter to popular sungura musician Alick, has filed for divorce barely three months after tying the knot with husband Kudakwashe Munetsi.

The two were embroiled in a bitter domestic dispute, resulting in Sharon filing domestic violence charges against her husband.

Judgment in the case will be delivered at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts on November 11.

“The marriage relationship between plaintiff (Sharon) and defendant (Kudakwashe) has irretrievably broken down and there is no reasonable prospect of the restoration of a normal marriage relationship between them,” Sharon said in her summons filed by her lawyer Norman Mugiya yesterday.

In the summons, Sharon said the relationship cannot be mended, considering that Kudakwashe physically assaulted her. She further said Kudakwashe committed adultery.

“The parties have not lived as husband and wife for over one month now, given the fact that the marriage is hardly three months old,” reads part of the summons.

“The plaintiff has lost all love and affection towards defendant.”

In the summons, Sharon said they had not acquired any assets of value, except for a few wedding gifts, most of which had not yet been delivered to them.

“It is therefore fair and just that each party retains the items in its possession at the time of the filing of the summons,” she said.

Sharon said she was pregnant and that Kudakwashe was responsible for the pregnancy.

Kudakwashe is denying responsibility for the pregnancy, saying he has not been intimate with his wife because she was on medication for a venereal disease.

In the summons, Sharon is demanding a decree of divorce and that Kudakwashe pays her maintenance in the sum of $400 every month until she dies or remarries.

The couple’s divorce became nastier after the exchange of scurrilous accusations. Kudakwashe claims Sharon is an attention-seeking person, adding that he did not know she was pregnant.

On the other hand, Sharon claims her husband is a drug abuser.

“…he has a penchant for drinking Bron Cleer, he also smokes cannabis and abuses amtriplin pills. After taking these drugs, he becomes violent, uncooperative and acts in an unbecoming manner,” she said.

Sharon akaboorwa kare nevakomana veband rababa vake. Sake tete vake vakamupa zvimishonga zvekudzora chinhu chake hence young man akapiwa STI......midzi yekutiita kuti pakati paite kunge kacheche. Munetsi akatambura nekufa achiti ndawana musikana nyambe igaro churu chakapinda nyoka kare. What about HIV/AIDS instead yekutaura STI. Young man akapusa. Malawians like vana Macheso vanotamba nemidzi. Ask anyone from that tribe and they will advice in that regard. You talk of STI instead of HIV/AIDS wakapusa mfana iwe nhai. Mukore uno what is STI......ndo HIV yacho ka....kikiiiiiii Murozvi mukuru ini. Ndakambozviatura ini mukati ndine majairosi ka! Hezvo

Sharon thank you for making this bold decision and I know it wasn't easy to make it.It is sad that a lot has been said and done but it pains a lot when such a young marriage collapses in this fashion.To start with this Munetsi guy is vey immature and irresponsible I believe its high time he sits down and reflects to everything that has occurred over the past few months.Yes I agree there was a lot of problems in this marriage but the manner in which this young handled his issues leaves a lot to be desired.There is no household without problems but kuvhura hapwa pese pese handizvo zvinosolver maproblems.Munetsi anoshamashama pese pese grow up and be a real man and stop playing gallery to the press.Maybe you think you are destroying Sharo but NO you are actually destroying yourself.Most times I wondered wether you didn't have elders to advise you appropriately because you have totally lost it.
