Bona Mugabe's marriage 'on the brink of collapse'

Bona Mugabe's marriage 'on the brink of collapse'

There are reports that the marriage of President Robert Mugabe's daughter, Bona and Simba Chikore, is reportedly on the brink of collapse.

The developments come amid reports that Mugabe and his wife Grace are secretly planning to nudge their daughter into an influential political role in Zanu PF and government.

The Telescope News, reported that speculation is rife that the first family is working out to position Bona into earning a powerful political post, either as a cabinet minister or top diplomat in preparation for possible higher office, in case Grace fails to make it into a post-Mugabe presidium.

Mugabe reportedly believes Bona is disciplined and has what it takes to master statecraft.

What reportedly worsened Bona' marriage crisis is her  failure to conceive a baby more than a year after getting married 'as a pure virgin.'

This has apparently raised alarm among both families who are said to be itching for a grandchild while they are still in power.

Traditionalists apparently believe that a bride should fall pregnant immediately after the marriage festivity, especially if she was a virgin.



The developments have resulted to  communication break-down at times, between the couple as Chikore eagerly wants to be a father while Bona seems bent on giving in to her parents' wishes of power to complement her mother's ambition to become vice president or head of state should the political pendulum swing to her favour in 2018.

Last month both Bona and Simba reportedly made a tacit admission that all was not "rosy" in their marriage as sometimes they could spend half a day without talking to each other, due to being fed up with one another.

Bona was reported to have been rounded-up and press ganged into marriage by Grace in 2014, against her will to first concentrate on her career as a finance expert or banker. Grace wanted her to settle down first, plan a family and then look into career matters after becoming a mother, a move which Mugabe had initially opposed, but is believed to have bowed down to pressure from the first lady.

Mugabe allegedly wanted Bona to make her own decision about whom to get married to, as he was convinced there was no befitting Son in law, to ask Bona's hand in marriage at the time, including Chikore.

Chikore, a former head-boy at St Johns High in the capital, stood accused of having Casanova tendencies at the time, on top of unclear aviation qualifications as a pilot with an Asian airline, which dismissed that it was his employer recently.

In March this year Mugabe, began taking Bona on several official visits overseas, sparking  speculation that she was being prepared for future power seizure.
