Selected ZimEye searches:Abductions Lorcadia Tembo Morgan Tsvangirai Injuries Chiwenga ZANU PF army killings
Published: April 22, 2012
There was internet-wide outrage Saturday after a glittering photograph of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai inserting an engagement ring into his new lover and wife to be, Elizabeth Macheka’s finger, surfaced on the internet.
Tsvangirai on Friday engaged long time lover Elizabeth Macheka at a private function. His spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed to ZimEye that Tsvangirai recently decided to settle down with Macheka who is a local businesswoman.
Macheka is widow to the dreaded former airforce wing commander, Masimba Sasa Guma who led the violent raiding of many white owned farms in Chegutu between 2000 and 2002.
Save, as party members affectionately call him, is however keeping marriage processions on hold until after elections which may be held in March 2013, the PM’s projected date.
The premier who lost his wife Susan in a car accident in 2009, later paid bride price for another local businesswoman, Lorcadia Karimatsenga, who he has now dumped for Elizabeth Macheka.
News readers however flooded social networks complaining about the PM’s behaviour as they claimed that:
“Tsvangirai is attracted only to ZANU PF women”
Within less than 3 hours on Saturday night, Zimbabweans had flooded the social indulgence website Facebook where they vented their anger on Tsvangirai for his having ‘humiliated’ his customary wife, Lorcadia Tembo.
“He owes the country an explanation? No. He doesn’t! This is his personal life, *** ****, he can do what he wants with it”, wrote one contributor identified only as NM.
Other users blasted Tsvangirai for acting like South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma who has multiple wives. The criticism of Tsvangirai reached a bitter peak when he was accused of being attracted only to ZANU PF women referring to both Lorcadia Tembo and Elizabeth Macheka both who belong to Robert Mugabe’s ZANU PF party.
“Well said sisi .bn asking my self the same qns ? Gore mukadzi gore mukadzi kunga Zuma nhayi . Ko chiiko? And vasikana ve Zanu anovada mhoti,” wrote another user identified as AD.
Mugabe is better than Tsvangirai
Other users stretched their anger further as they stated that political rival President Robert Mugabe is now better than Tsvangirai. They also stated that because of his unpredictable behaviour with women, Tsvangirai had effectively lost all moral right to deliver a public speech on HIV/AIDS.
Below are some of the comments which kept pouring into the night Saturday:
SJ: I dont think he owes anyone an explanation , this is his pvt life and it stays that way ,
