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.
