Kirsty Coventry’s husband Tyrone Seward was charged one cow and two chickens as lobola by the Olympic swimming gold medalist’s father Rob.

The bride price did not include cash.

Rob said he was compelled to ask for only one beast because he does not have a place to keep many cows.

Seward can, however, up the bride prize in the coming years if he wishes to do so.

Seward and Kirsty got married in 2013.

The four-people round table negotiations comprised Rob, Kirsty, her mother Lyn and Seward, who represented himself since most of his family members stay overseas.

Kirsty met Chinhoyi born and bred Seward through a mutual friend in November 2009 in Johannesburg where the latter was working.

They got engaged on August 10 2012 in London during the Olympic.

Coventry attended Dominican Convent High School, Harare, in Zimbabwe until 1999.

In May 2019, she gave birth to her first child.

Kirsty is the current Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation in the Cabinet of Zimbabwe as of September 2018.
