Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa files for divorce

Zimlive reports that top TV and radio personality Ruvheneko Elsie Mafara née Parirenyatwa is divorcing her husband of almost seven years, at least on paper, saying their union has irretrievably broken down.

Ruvheneko said in High Court summons that her marriage to Tendai Basil Mafara has been relatively broken to the extent that the two stopped living together.

“My marriage relationship with the defendant has irretrievably broken down to the extent that there is no reasonable prospect of the restoration between us of a normal marriage relationship,” said Ruvheneko.

She added: “Defendant and I have been unable to maintain common interests or a loving relationship as should subsist between husband and wife and defendant and have been living apart since October 2016 and have no intentions of resuming cohabitation with each other. This is confirmed by the defendant who signed an affidavit of waiver consenting to the divorce.”

According to court papers, Ruvheneko and Mafara have agreed on how to share their assets save for a Mercedes Benz ML 350 which Ruvheneko wants if granted by the court.

Their case was filed on March 31, 2021, and was scheduled for hearing on April 15.
