Zanu PF MP 'chases' wife from farm

HARARE - Zanu PF Hurungwe West MP Keith Never Guzah, who filed court summons to divorce his wife of more than two decades, Zandile Guzah, nee Maseko, is now seeking to evict the woman from their Zvimba farm.

According to court papers, Guzah married Zandile in March 1991, and the two were blessed with four children and the marriage broke down partly because of the legislator’s abuse of drugs.

“The marriage has irretrievably broken down to such an extent that there are no prospects of restoration of a normal marriage relationship in that, both parties have lost love and affection of each other, both parties have not lived together as husband and wife for a continuous period since January 2008, which period is excess of twelve months as at the time of instituting the proceedings for divorce,” he said.

During the subsistence of their marriage, the two managed to acquire various properties.

Among some of the movable property that they acquired were six tractors, three ploughs,  a 33 herd of cattle, a farm, a Highfield house and several vehicles, reads Guzah’s declaration.

However, Zandile differed with Guzah’s submissions, claiming that they had not lived as husband and wife since February 2006.

She went on to make a counter claim and accused Guzah of deliberately leaving out some of the property that they acquired together.

She went on to give a list of the houses they acquired together, which are in Mt Pleasant, Mandara, Avondale and Highfield. She also mentioned a fleet of cars, which include a BMW X5, two Mercedes Benz an S600 and an SLK 200, a Range Rover, a Toyota Hilux and a seven tonne truck.

Guzah’s wife proposed that she be given a Hyundai Rajet, Toyota Hilux, T 35 truck, seven tonne truck and a Range Rover, while suggesting Guzah to be given a BMW X5, the two Mercedes Benz and a Porsche Cayenne.

According to her counter claim, Zandile is demanding personal maintenance of $600 every month and $900 for each of their two children, whom she said were still attending university in China.

However, while these proceedings were still pending at the High Court, Guzah filed another High Court application seeking to evict his wife from their Carlton Curlieu farm, in Zvimba.

In the application Guzah cited Zandile, Jacob Johannes Pistorious and Louise Greyling as respondents.

He argued that, he was allocated the farm under the Land Reform Programme.

He said Zandile had forcibly taken occupation of the farmhouse and she was barring him from carrying out undisturbed farming activities at the farm and acted violently.

“She threatened to kill me if I set foot on the farm. I took her threats seriously because during my father’s funeral in September 2007, when there was meat shortage, I went to the farm with my son to slaughter one beast as I had over 70 cattle at the farm.

“She became violent and assaulted me and almost broke my hand with a hoe handle. We had to leave unceremoniously empty-handed,” Guzah said.

He sought an order for Zandile’s eviction, arguing that he stood to be prejudiced, accusing her of failing to settle electricity bills.

However, Zandile argued that she was a joint owner of the property, adding that Guzah was trying to mislead the court and trying to get undeserved sympathy by painting a bad picture of her.

She denied forcibly taking over occupation of the farm, adding that Guzah’s promiscuity, drug abuse and violence had resulted in the separation and her going to stay at the farm.

Zandile also denied threatening to assault Guzah.

Both matters are still to be set down for hearing before the High Court.
