Tsitsi Masiyiwa, philanthropist and wife of Econet Wireless founder Strive Masiyiwa has advised people to disregard the traditions which regard the month of November as “sacred” if they want to get married.

Tsitsi Masiyiwa survives month-long health scare

Accordign to local custom and tradition, the month of November is sacred and during this month significant events and marital related activities such as getting customarily married, weddings and even eloping are frowned upon. Writing on Twitter, Masiyiwa instead called on the people of Zimbabwe to turn to God, is there is no other greater power. Said Masiyiwa,

Zimbabwe it’s okay and acceptable to get married in November. It’s perfectly acceptable to renew your marriage vows in the month of November. “So remember this and keep it firmly in mind: The Lord is God both in heaven and on earth, and there is no other.”

Deuteronomy 4:39

Unsurprisingly reactions to Masiyiwa’s tweet were divided with some advocating for Christian principles while others advocated for culture and tradition.

Traditionalists claim that the late former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s marriage to Locardia Karimatsenga collapsed because Tsvangirai performed the customary rites for marriage in the month of November in 2011. After the relationship, collapsed Tsvangirai went on to marry h wife Elizabeth Macheka.

Exiled former cabinet minister and G40 Faction strategist Professor Jonathan Moyo also turned to spirituality after former President Robert Mugabe was ousted in November last year, warning President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his deputy, General (Retired) Constantino Chiwenga that their administration is doomed because they violated the sacred month of November.

Said Moyo,

In Zimbabwe November is sacred. Anything with spirituality done in the month is doomed. It’s the #NovemberCurse. You ignore it only at your peril. A marriage in November fails, or worse happens. Smith’s 11 November UDI failed. So, the 15 November coup of Chiwenga & Ed is doomed!

During this month everything with links to the spiritual and ancestral world of indigenous traditions temporarily ceases to function. The ancestors are on leave and without the ancestor’s blessings, all social, economic and political aspects of human existence are doomed to fail.

#TheNovemberCurse. Does the Zanu PF Couburo really believe that it can get a partisan ad hoc committee to do what the Cabinet has failed to do to about crazy prices of basic commodities that started skyrocketing with the 15 Nov coup? #TheNovemberCurse!
