The late Lazarus “Gringo” Boora’s widow Netsai Meki has vowed never to marry again saying she will take care of her four children with the comedian alone.
Meki, who gave birth to a baby boy on 5 June, seven months after her husband’s death, expressed displeasure over questions raised about the baby’s paternity.
Gringo died on November 9 last year, after being bedridden since August of the same year.
Meki said those who question the baby’s paternity should just back off and concentrate on what concerns their lives. She said:
I will never remarry. Imagine having another man taking care of my children. What if he doesn’t like them?
For now, it is me and my children, what the people are saying is something else and after what I went through I have developed a thick skin.
I wasn’t happy with some of the stories that were written by other media houses, without contacting me.
I was the last wife and was looking after Gringo, hence I should deserve the respect.
Meki revealed that all in all, there are now eight Gringo’s children. His first wife had one, the second wife had two and the third wife had one.
She said all of Gringo’s children’s names start with the letter “T” — Takudzwa, Tanaka, Taurai, Tanyaradzwa, Tabeth and Terrence.
On the Isuzu KB car which Gringo’s eldest son Taurai was fighting for, Meki said the vehicle was still at the Hatfield premises where they were lodging with Gringo when he died. She said:
I don’t know what will happen next on the issue of the Isuzu KB as you can see it’s still parked outside. It has never moved since the death of my husband.
Remember, I told you that it was a company car and the owner has the papers, so maybe he is waiting or should I say is giving us time to mourn Gringo, then at the right time, he will come and announce the next move.
