The divorce proceedings between Bona Mugabe, the daughter of the late former president Robert Mugabe, and her husband of nine years, Simba Chikore, have reportedly taken a bitter turn. Bona filed for divorce summons at the High Court citing an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage with no possibility of restoration, which led to a contentious battle over the division of assets.
The situation escalated when Simba Makore reportedly sold 100 cattle belonging to both parties, which could lead to his arrest. Additionally, Simba Chikore rejected Bona’s offer, which included a house in Chishawasha, motor vehicles, cattle, and other significant assets.
Instead, he demanded additional properties, including those in the affluent area of Umwinsidale in Harare, which Bona holds on the premise that they were given to her through her late father’s estate.
Bona is determined to end her marriage with Simba Chikore and is willing to forego equitable division of assets to expedite the divorce process and prevent unnecessary delays. She reportedly wants to speed up the process because she is fed up with Simba’s behavior.
The divorce proceedings have become acrimonious, with both parties fighting over the division of assets. The situation has taken a turn for the worse, with Simba’s actions potentially leading to his arrest. The bitter dispute highlights the need for couples to engage in amicable and fair negotiations during divorce proceedings to avoid unnecessary conflicts and stress.
