Moana’s father Mr Ishamel Amuli said he last saw his daughter in 2017 soon after her divorce and was distressed and worried about her wild behavior.
“In 2017, Mitchelle had problems with her husband, and sent him to drop off their child at our home in Domboshava.
Mitchelle later came to pick her daughter and I sat down with her, telling her that I wasn’t happy with her behavior.
“Last year I saw her, but we never talked much. I am a Muslim and what she was doing was against our religion. Now how do I tell my elders at the mosque and how will she be buried?
We are now at her mother’s house in Highfield because I did not fully pay lobola for her mother. I still owe in-laws, but that is a story for another day,” he said.
“I quit my job to look after my children. I had five children and Mitchelle was the second born and only girl. She had a daughter named Tyra. I stay in Domboshava in Chirombo Village.
Moana featured in several musical videos which include Takura’s popular track “Zvemoyo”, Enzo Ishall’s “Mwenje” and Freeman’s video “Muridzo”.
