HARARE – Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has announced that his daughter Bona will have her white wedding next year in March. Mugabe was addressing people who attended a special mass on Thursday at Chishawasha Mission Primary School in Goromonzi.

Mugabe was speaking at the commissioning and handover of two boys’ hostels, a 79-seater bus and a computer laboratory at the school and said the wedding would follow Bona’s graduation in Singapore next month.

The 89 year old President told the gathering that Bona, who holds a first degree in Accounting, would be graduating with a Masters on November 16 at a university in Singapore. “Tina sisi vari pano ava vane zita rinonzi Bona,” he said.

“Akaenda kuDominican Convent takazomuendesa kunanaHong Kong achindoita zvidzidzo zveaccounts. Akazoita Masters kuSingapore, saka ari kuenda kugraduation musi wa16 November.

“Gore rinouya akafunga zvekusiya mhuri kunovamba yakewo achiti chisarai makandibatsira, ndakura ndakunozviitira. Izvo ndinofunga zvichauya munaMarch gore rinouya. Ndopatinenge tichizokukokai mose ipapo kuti munge muinesu.”

Mugabe received $35 000 and 15 head of cattle in bride price (lobola) for his daughter Bona, in a traditional marriage ceremony which took place in August. The son-in law Simba Chikore, is a pilot with the Emirates Airlines who is also a Zaoga (Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa) church member.

Press reports suggest Bona Mugabe and Chikore’s relationship started and blossomed two years ago when she boarded a plane he was flying on her way to Dubai. Sources say they exchanged numbers and later became friends.

However, the friendship developed into an affair until Simba was introduced to the First Family last year. President Mugabe asked Chikore in person whether he was serious about the affair to which he responded positively.

First Lady Grace Mugabe last week torched controversy after publicly claiming that her daughter had never slept with any man and dismissed as lies online reports in 2010 alleging that her daughter had been raped in Singapore after a student party. Many felt she had unnecessarily embarrassed her daughter.

Bona’s marriage is a clean break from her mother Grace Marufu who had an affair with Mugabe while his wife Sally was dying of a kidney ailment. The affair resulted in two children, Bona, named after Mugabe’s mother, and Robert Peter, Jr.

    Grace pilot marufu. Grace was married to a pilot by the name of Stanley goreraza. Now Bona is marrying a pilot too. That spells disaster. Tsvangirai is the next president of zim so it means Bona is tsvanGirais future wife. The bottom line is Bona is going to do like mother(dump a pilot for a president)

    This is a great thing for Chishawasha Mission Primary School. This place taught us hard work.

    These days schools especially these primary boarding schools must be extra careful to protect those little boys and girls so they are not sexually abused. Nhau dzakadaro dzevachengeti vakashungurudza vana pabonde dzawanda mazuvano and historically we heard whispers about such behaviour growing up in boarding schools. Some people who were abused many years ago are still suffering, their minds messed up and their sexual make-up distorted.

    Kudhura Bona haana considering the family status she hails from.Proud to ve a president who respects our culture and heritage to set aside his hectic schedule to attend a ceremony which lasted hours and above all accepting the son in law and the bride price.Cu ve said its peanuts if he needed.

  • Jojo

    I envy you Chikore!! Unaita makseni , maskati, nemanheru!!

  • Rudadiso

    I wasn’t aware Mugabe was a Christian. Gukurahundi would not have happened and Zimbabwe wouldn’t be the hell hole that it is today.

    I also wonder why anyone would charge that kind of money for roora irrespective of who they are. What message is the president sending to the ordinary Zimbabweans? The concept of roora has clearly been made a mockery of by a man who should know better.

  • Mental

    Shuva vamwe vanhu havanyari. Most of those who are posting hogwash ‘varikuchaya mapoto’! Vamwe venyu hamusati mabvisa tsvakirai kuno. Vamwe kuita vana four asi mombe youmai zero. Vamwe munofanira kunamatira vanasisi nevanasikana venyu nekuti kudzinza kwenyu hakuna anoroorwa-kungomitiswa basi ndokunge asiri pfambi pa’growth point’. Shame sitereki maningi. Shuwa munhu angarwadziwa nekuti mwana wemumwe aroorwa. Those who post negative comments about Bona and Simba’s union are a disgrace to society. They surely missed something during the process of socialization!

    • Anita Samuels

      Excuse me, which planet do you live on? This is 2013 dear, wake up and smell the coffee, every person has the right to their own opinion and you should respect that. That is the reason why every Zimbabwean does not support MDC or ZANU PF alone because we do not think alike.

  • Magame

    Could be around 65. Jokes. The young lady seems level headed. Those who watched the Dali Tambo interview will agree she seemed more mature than the mother. Given the antics of the brothers she has done really well.

  • Johnnie Walker

    (yawn) oh something has captured my eye here. ‘GUILTY CONSCIENCE’ yeah i mean why should it be mentioned (virginity) if we have not sought for answers.

  • Rudadiso

    You are a married to Goreraza, you sleep with Robert Mugabe while his wife Sally is dying; you defraud the VIP housing scheme of $4 million when you had not contributed a single cent; you take Washington Matsaira’s and many other farms; you get the reserve bank to import $7 million worth of state of the art dairy equipment for which you don’t pay a single cent; you take Eaglesvale land from them and fence it off; then you have the audacity to talk about Christian values and hard work! Grace obviously thinks we are all morons. Evil beyond description, she believes nothing will ever happen to her so she can arrogantly insult our intelligence at will.

    • Mapenzi

      @Rudadiso deal with it. Grace Mugabe ndivo Mai VeNyika and takavhotera murume wavo tichiziva all those stupid allegations. Dai Mugabe aikendenga kuti Grace akaita sei he would never have married her and could instead have married any other person including amai vako. Unoti pane mukadzi asingade kukwirwa naPresident including your wife and mother. As far as Investments even Mugabe akanzi aba usd1 billion iam not worried because what he has brought to ZIM is much much more for current and future generations. His dealing are all above board and ask all companies who deal with first family and they will tell you how upright and honest they are. MARI yako unopihwa on time. MaWorkers even eku farm the least paid is usd500. Ndiyo yatinoti ploughing back even if the money is ill gotten as you claim its being recycled back into economy formally. Zvinofadza sei kuita President anoba usd7 million then ploughs it back in the country which means zvinotoreka back. That is why you don’t hear anyone having qualms about Mugage investments because they are productive and being done in this country. After all it comes with territory. Bush naBlair chaivo iyezvino vanobhadharisa usd250000 an interview. Musade kuti kanganisa nhasi I Sunday zuva raMwari

      • Manyuka

        Mapenzi what you are saying is only a display of what is i your head, shit. Just dispute what he has said. Grace is not the correct person to talk of Christina values judging by what she has done and said about other people. Its like going to church were Zoey or Bev are the preachers. Why do you talk about Bush and Blaur, where has Rudadiso talked about these guys. Saka if America kills 1000 and ZanuPF kills 20 its ok that is what you are trying to tell us. All he is saying is you cannot move around telling people my daughter is a virgin. Nokuziva kwavanoita mishonga pamwe iya inosunga zvinhu kuti zviite tight ndiyo iripo zvozonzi i virgin. Ngaandopasa test ya Chief vaye.

    @Rudadiso – well put son. I get your slant. You make sence. Don’t be bothered about this Zanu moron obviously high on something quite toxic. The Eaglesvale land issue shows how greedy those that have power have become.

    • liniagozo

      kikikiki wasvotwa asi wako akaroorwa ukasapiwa chimanda su shaina grace nemwana wako iwe vaudze futi kuti she is virgin

  • Simba

    kochii chakaitika mu “cock”pit?

  • Chief

    No one is perfect,but it doesnt mean she should not teach her kids to uphold christian values.

    • Anita Samuels

      You are right Chief, the fact that Grace is/or was a promiscuous woman does not mean that she should not teach her children to uphold christian values. Kana inini ndakamitiswa ndikaita vana out of wedlock obviously I would not want my children to make the same mistake as I did.

  • Samz

    The announcement of Bona’s purity comes with the territory. Diana’s purity was announced the world over, by the british everyone knows Charles found Diana in her pure state. These people are role models. These statements were mentioned in church at a women’s service. So the rest of us we are taking this out of context. It was mentioned to encourage other mothers to do the same and young ladies were being encouraged to follow suite. So it was within context. Our culture puts pride and value on purity even the British culture. In our culture this is is not kept a secret when I wedded in 2001 the tete of my wife came to church with a raw egg in a cup sitting on mealy meal. If I had found my wife not a virgin I was to return it smashed. The white sheets are also in our culture and the british, in our culture the sheets are washed by tete. In some areas you are given a cloth if you find your new wife deflowered you return the cloth torn. White gowns and crowns were worn by virgins. So the matter is not a secret it’s an issue that is associated with pride and boasting.

    Who let the dogs out ?
    There are good biological reasons for dogs to sniff each others rectum.
    But there will never be a valid basis for humans to indulge in such porno-activity !
    It is simply scatological and indecent.
    Especially when it involves such an elegant, erudite, and dignified family.
