At the tender age of 14, Nyarai has been betrothed to a senior member of the apostolic sect as the eighth wife.

The Herald reported that the marriage was arranged outside her knowledge and she found herself dropping out of school to take up her new role as a wife.

Nyarai (not real name) of Matara Village in Murehwa, Mashonaland East Province, is polygamist Jacob Garwe’s latest “trophy” and has been yoked with seven other women, senior to her in both age and experience in the matrix of polygamous matrimonial issues.The most unfortunate thing is that according to church doctrine, she could not override her father’s decision to marry her off, let alone report to police.
