In her response to Chiwenga’s application for divorce last month, Marry revealed that she rejected the divorce token as it had been paid in foreign currency. She said:
The defendant further claims in reconvention that the plaintiff has failed to follow proper customary law procedures to end the customary marriage and that, instead, plaintiff sent (Anselem) Sanyatwe to give her a United States dollar bill which she declined to accept on the basis that it is unlawful in Zimbabwe to transact in United States dollars and that it was (up to) the plaintiff to give her gupuro (divorce token) after following all proper customary protocol. Consequently, the customary marriage continues to subsist.
Marry also dismissed claims by Chiwenga that she is a drug addict saying she is in better health to care for the kids than Chiwenga who is a sickly absentee parent who is more in hospital than out.
