A 70 year old Zanu-PF minister, Cain Mathema, has wedded a 23 year old student. Cain Mathema is the Matabeleland North Provincial Affairs Minister.

He wedded Bathabetsoe Nare, a 23 year old.  The wedding was held in Bulawayo.

Nare graduated from Midlands State University (MSU) recently. For her attachment in 2014, Nare had worked at Mhlahlandlela Government Complex in Bulawayo. Mathema operated from the same offices.

This is not the first time Mathema has married someone many years his junior. He impregnated his wife’s maid aged 20 before marrying her. In 2009 his second wife, Musa Ncube, sued Mathema for failing to take care of his third wife’s three children. During that court battle, Ncube accused Mathema of “taking advantage” of her youth when he had sex with her when she was a 20-year-old and he was 44.

In December 2014, Nare was crowned Miss Global Warming Zimbabwe as part of the Miss Environment Zimbabwe pageant.

Cain Mathema was born on 25 January 1947. He turns 70 in a month.

    its a free world in the past men had more than one wife he would get a wife all along his life as long as he could peck anongoita mumwe mukadzi vakadzi vana haasiye wekutanga kane kuti wekupedzisira kuwana its normal in nature to do that. At least he is taking them home than our young who just tom cat and live like they dont have any need for marriage yet. If the young girls dont get respect from their piers the older will take care of their needs all round. I dont get it 30 , 40 years still single but sleeping around every day and nobody talks ill about such then y find this man who can take it well for night after night why not let him have the girl, enjoy it while it last all shall come to pass. Take care of the sweet woman you have Sir…Mathema.

      The woman was not forced to marry him there it’s not abuse in anyway , respect love it’s natural. Vavhu vanhu siyai anakirwe neupenyu mwana uyu ,turume twemazuva ano twakadhakwa. Only older man can actually love and take care of a woman

    Uuuum vanhu kadzi kukara APA tete ava vada kudya zvaka rimwa kare. To us men we should realise that difference in years is also the same with the sex fulfillment. I mean the younger you are the more sexy you are. Saka mdhara

    Hhehe he must be using a combination of chimedzambuya, mudanhatsindi, and bond notes which always work on these bush blondes.

    this is an old article the idea s that since he is now a minister maybe the issue will have more currency bcoz someone wants to discredit him…For the record Zim allows men to marry more than one wife…the issue of age is only an issue when it comes to age of consent ….this is a private issue that says nothing about Mathema’s competence only to dirty his name
