The late MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai secretly paid lobola for a Bulawayo woman, Nobuhle Marylin Ndiweni (36), last year, his family has said.


Tsvangirai’s brother Manase said that the late MDC-T leader was a polygamist. A family source told The Herald said while it was public knowledge that Tsvangirai had a child with Ms Ndiweni, the opposition leader actually paid lobola for her.

“One of your sister papers (Sunday News) actually reported that he had impregnated Ndiweni who later gave birth to a baby boy at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo but the real story is mufi wakanosimbisa hukama nekubvisa pfuma (the deceased paid lobola),” said the family source.

“Mukoma Casper and Sam were the leading family members in the process and were welcomed in the family with both hands. The late actually made several visits to the family after his shenanigans.”

Our sister paper, Sunday News last year reported that Joy was born on July 27, 2017 with his mother having been admitted at the hospital on the previous day.

The birth record number is BC 0085691. But Ms Ndiweni denied being in a relationship with Mr Tsvangirai and giving birth to the former Prime Minister’s child.

“What are you talking about? I don’t know anything about what you are saying. I never gave birth and I’ve never been involved with him (Tsvangirai),” she said before hanging up.
Ms Ndiweni is alleged to be the second Bulawayo woman Mr Tsvangirai has impregnated after Ms Loreta Nyathi.
