HARARE: ZIMBABWE First Lady Grace Mugabe’s son, Russell Goreraza and his estranged wife Gladys Chiedza Goreraza (nee Chiwaya) have agreed to formally terminate their seven-year marriage at the High Court on Thursday.
Russell is Grace’s son from her first marriage to Stanley Goreraza.
In his declaration, Goreraza said he got married to Gladys on December 11, 2010 and their marriage was blessed with one child namely Taponeswa Aurelio born on February 15, 2013.
Goreraza claims he and Gladys had irreconcilable differences and were incompatible with each other to the extent that they have not lived as husband and wife for the past two years.
“The marriage between the parties has irretrievably broken down to the extent that there are no prospects of restoration of a normal marriage relationship, more particularly in that there is no longer any love and affection between the parties and communication between plaintiff (Goreraza) and defendant (Gladys) has completely broken down,” Goreraza said in his summons.
After receiving the summons Gladys through her lawyer Donald Sibanda of Sibanda and Partners entered an appearance to defend notice in December last year and on March 23 this year the woman signed consent papers bringing to an end the couple’s holy matrimony.
“The defendant, hereby, agrees that it is not her intention to oppose the plaintiff’s claim for a final decree of divorce with the terms and conditions set out herein being incorporated into any final order which this honourable court may grant,” Gladys said in the consent document.
