Founder of the Zimbabwe Assemblies of God (ZAOGA) Forward in Faith (FIF), Ezekiel Guti’s daughter Ethanim, is involved in a divorce wrangle with her estranged husband, Lindsay Nyajeka.
It has been revealed that Ethanim Perfect Munamato Nyajeka (nee Guti), who is married to Lindsay Nyajeka, last year instituted divorce proceedings saying their marriage had irretrievably broken down. She is also seeking to be awarded full custody of their two minor children.
After initially consenting to the settlement, Nyajeka changed his stance, claiming that he was being pressurised by third parties to sign the papers.
He revealed that his mother-in-law, Eunor Guti recorded a video which was delivered to him, warning him to sign the papers or risk being sent to jail.
In his amended plea, Nyajeka claimed that he was concerned about their children’s safety if they were left in his wife’s custody. He said:
The respondent (Ethanim) is staying with her parents and I fear for the minor children as there is a history of physical and sexual abuse done but concealed by relatives.
However, Ethanim said that Nyajeka initially admitted that their marriage was over and that there was no more affection between the parties consenting to have the divorce granted. His change of plea was meant to prolong matters, she argued.
