Married several times and divorced as much Zanu PF women’s league boss Oppah Muchinguri is in love again, this time with a church pastor from Mbare, RelZim can reveal.
Sources close to the powerful woman who is in line to become the next vice president say she is happily married to a pastor who once based in the United States of America.
What makes Muchinguri’s recent secretive marriage even more intriguing is the fact that it is a fulfillment of a prophesy by the charismatic Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua.
“She is very happy and in love. Although they have not been seen in public Muchinguri seems ready to flaunt her new found toy around,” a source said.
Efforts to speak to Muchinguri did not yield a satisfactory answer as she preferred not to discuss her personal life.
“It is none of your business. There are a lot of things you people can write about. Has anybody asked you about your personal life? In fact when the time comes you will be the first to know. It is probably in December,” Muchinguri said then.
One thing is clear though that Muchinguri is a beautiful woman despite being one of the most influential women in the country’s vicious political currency.
She was previously married to struggling Botswana-based trader Tapiwa Rushesha and their marriage ended in the late 1990s in a messy divorce, and she reverted to her family name of Muchinguri.
Her looks combined with her political power have seen her being linked to influential personalities, not least her political partners but nothing concrete ever came from the relationships.
The rumour mill has it that Muchinguri was once lovers with the late popular sungura maestro Simon Chimbetu, who ironically penned a song exalting Oppah’s beauty—the song was simply titled Oppah.
Apart from being linked to a musician Oppah was also said to have at one time been the apple of President Robert Mugabe’s heart.
During the acrimonious divorce and child custody proceedings, Muchinguri’s former husband Rushesha told the courts that he had been upset that Mugabe often sent his bodyguards to pick up his wife for ‘meetings’ in the middle of the night.
