The late former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s relatives are challenging the legality of Ms Elizabeth Macheka’s marriage to the politician, accusing the widow of deliberately under-declaring the properties left behind by the late politician.
Macheka is accused of fraudulently leaving out five houses and 17 vehicles in the inventory of properties filed at the Master of High Court’s office. The late MDC-T founding leader’s family members have since engaged the services of Jonathan Samukange of Venturas & Samukange Legal Practitioners who requested a meeting with all the interested parties before the Master to discuss the matter.
Macheka declared only one house in Strathaven, Harare, as the only immovable property that the late politician owned. She listed six vehicles, a herd of 45 cattle in Kwekwe and others in Buhera as the only property forming the estate. The family claims Macheka fraudulently left thr following immovable properties out:
- Highlands house
- Borrowdale house
- Philadelphia house
- Number 16 Kent Road house
- A farm in Mazowe
The following vehicles, according to the relatives, were also left out on the inventory: three Mercedes Benz vehicles, a Range Rover, Nissan Navara, three Toyota Prado vehicles, a Toyota Vitz, a Toyota Hilux, five Isuzu trucks, a BMW X5 (at Gwanda Police Station) and a Toyota Land Cruiser (at CMED). The Master of High Court is yet to respond to the request.
