Chiyangwa in messy divorce

Phillip-ChiyangwaDaniel Nemukuyu Senior Reporter
Businessman Mr Phillip Chiyangwa is embroiled in a messy divorce in which his wife of 25 years is claiming 85 percent of the couple’s wealth and US$83 000 per month for 120 months as maintenance after the termination of the marriage. Mrs Elizabeth Chiyangwa (nee Juma) says her husband was now associating with several other women and that their marriage had irretrievably broken down.
Her lawyer Advocate Isaiah Mureriwa of Scanlen and Holderness, filed the divorce papers on at the High Court on Monday.

Mrs Chiyangwa is seeking a decree of divorce, an order for property sharing in which she claims 85 percent and monthly maintenance in the sum of US$83 000 for a period of 120 months.

Among the listed properties believed to be part of Mr Chiyangwa’s empire include 60 hectares of land in the Grange (Harare), Stoneridge Farm measuring 586 hectares, six hectares of land in Harare, Lot 3 of Delnadamph Estate measuring 5 hectares, Stand 65 Colne Valley Township 5 of Lot 7A measuring 7 hectares, Stand 389 Derbyshire Township measuring 25 hectares, a piece of land in Zvimba measuring 1 331 hectares, piece of land in Shortson Harare measuring 72 hectares, part of Sangwe Farm in Chinhoyi measuring 845 hectares, 2 812 hectares of land at Olympus Farm in Chinhoyi, 4 060 hectares at Old Citrus Farm in Chinhoyi, 1 416 hectares at Strathcona Farm, Chinhoyi, 600 hectares at North Umzari Farm, urban residential stands throughout the country, a fleet of top of the range vehicles and 40 companies.

Mrs Chiyangwa claims during the subsistence of their marriage, they acquired 109 stands, plots and structures and a host of other properties.

In the plaintiff’s declaration forming part of the application, Mrs Chiyangwa said she married Mr Chiyangwa in 1986 but their marriage was solemnised under Chapter 5:11 of the Marriages Act on November 11 1988.

The parties have two daughters Ellen Vanessa (born 1986) and Mitchelle Martha (born 1989).

Mrs Chiyangwa claims the marriage had irretrievably broken down.

“The defendant (Mr Chiyangwa) has improperly associated himself with several other women sexually.

“The defendant continues with such conduct such that the plaintiff finds his continued behaviour irreconcilable with a continued marital relationship between her and the defendant.

“The defendant continuously neglects, emotionally and physically, abuses the plaintiff in a manner inconsistent with a normal marital relationship.

“The abuse is to the extent that the plaintiff lives in constant fear of the defendant and her continued living with him is out of submission as opposed to consent, a situation incompatible with a normal marital relationship.

“The defendant has successfully alienated his love for the plaintiff to other several women to the extent that the plaintiff regards as irreconcilable with a continued marital relationship.

“As a result of the conducts and behaviours mentioned above, the plaintiff has consequently lost all trust, faith, love and affection for the defendant to the extent that she desires to have this marriage dissolved,” read the declaration.

Mrs Chiyangwa said the properties she listed were acquired by the couple over the years but registered in Mr Chiyangwa’s name or names of some companies linked to him.

She wants the court to appoint an independent professional auditor to determine the exact extent and particulars of the estate acquired by the parties during the subsistence of the marriage and compile an inventory of the properties.

An independent evaluator, Mrs Chiyangwa says, should be appointed by the registrar of the High Court to evaluate the properties in the inventory to be compiled by the auditors.

Mrs Chiyangwa says the parties involved in the divorce should equally pay the appointed evaluator and forensic auditor.

She wants 85 percent of the property.

“The defendant shall pay the 85 percent value in cash to the plaintiff within a period of 90 days of the decree of divorce, failure of which the deputy sheriff shall, by public auction sell those of the assets mentioned in the inventory as shall realise cash proceeds equivalent to 85 percent of the value declared by the evaluator and pay such portion of the proceeds thereof as is equal to 85 percent of the declared value of the estate to the plaintiff.”

    Why 85%, when at the most in divorce cases, parties stake their claim at 50% for a start.Did she contribute more to the estate that the man himself? Or is it a case of grabbing it all

    • Tracy

      Grabing it all, she is crazy

      • Taku

        She does not expect 85% of their wealth but must start at a higher % as the courts will clearly reduce it and maybe end up in the 50′s when his legal team also contest it.If she started at 50% she would probably end up with between 15-25%, its a negotiation tactic common in high profile divorce settlements across the globe.

      I could have felt sympathy for this woman but her greed is so disgusting I have suddenly, strange as it may sound, wished the best for Phillip. It is such ridiculous and outrageous abuse of the law to wrest the most from men that all men must, for their own good, marry in community out of property and have antenuptial (pre-nups) in place. Forget about the “happily ever after” nonsense.

    • harare

      she is aiming for maybe 25-30% its just a negotiating tactic

    • MissRue

      There is something called forfeiture of benefits..if one spouse behaved badly in the marriage the other spouse cn hv the court forfeit wt ttht spouse is entitled to…and contribution to an estate isnt necessarily monetary-im sure she supported him emotionally, gv him chn and tolerated his behavioir for 25years

    social problems of post conflict societies. is it a good policy to tax assets heavily as a deterrant to easy divorces, or as a free society government should do nothing about such social problems. The fastest way to destroy a nation is to destroy it’s moral fabric. ZimAsset won’t work if our social fabric is torn apart. We must change our mindset before we can see any economic transformation.

  • Common Sense

    ..This idea of wanting to use marriage and divorce to steal the spouse’s wealth is the major reason why young men of today no longer want to marry. Women must not try to use the law to steal lest the boys will continue to impregnate and dump so as to avoid such wars in the future. This is a very bad example to the future generations and the justice system must not allow itself to be abused by some very greed women who think being married is their passport out of poverty and responsibility for their own lives. NDO EMPOWERMENT YACHO HERE IYI???

    • Pablo Escobar

      Your comment is garbage,most of the young man who are impegnating women and not marrying them don,t have a job,let alone weath,so this is a very lame excuse for young man to shy away from their responsibilities once their girlfriends are pregnant.Women these days are now smart,they will sue your a**** for child support if you get them pregnant and refuse to marry them.Have you ever heard of a prenuptial agreement? Thats what young couples have to sign before they get married to avoid issues like these rather than your dump idea of imprgnating then running away.

    • Soso

      But if you are also man enough to impregnate them you should be man enough to maintain them.

      • jojo

        sensible contribution.stick to one woman and you wont have any problems.

    • Peacemaker

      I think your observation is out of context and what poverty are you talking about? These guys have been married 25 years and have been enjoying their wealth together and i’m sure you do appreciate that when you are married you not only share your heart and lives but your property as well. The simple golden rule that was broken in this case is Faithfulness. If this story is true then the man has brought it upon himself, if he had been faithfull this wouldn’t be happening. Asi 85% yazonyanya.

        he/she only meant, why is it that its mostly women seeking to share the wealth. Loosely translated, it shows most women are lazy.

    • Mhof

      Mr Common Sense, if Dr. Phil had married Elizabeth 5 years ago I would probably say she married him to divorce him and get wealthy, but 25 years??? You don’t marry someone for 25 years and divorce them just to get rich, pane nyaya apa.

    • Mpho086

      I support you all the way especially wen the woman involved is one of those lazy ones. One that even forgets to bath in the morning and only does so when told by neighbours. Some women irks me, they do not even want to work to and get their hand dirty in order to grow the fortune but they are the 1st ones to demand 85% in a divorce. Some who work will not allow you to share their income but wen comes to divorce they demand 85% of what you have worked for.

    • Pastor Timothy Chiguvare

      WE CAN’T BUY LIFE BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE LIFE TO LIVE… Its very important for Mr Phillip Chiyangwa and Mrs Chiyangwa not to be excited by the media they must immediately withdraw the high court divorce case and count their blessings and then reconcile in the interests of their innocent children and for the 25 years they have been together God the Almighty has blessed them with so much wealth and that is a clear sign that , their combination is unique.Whatever the differences these two can only be separated by death and not by a court because the author of their differences is the DEVIL. Mr Phillip Chiyangwa and Mrs Chiyangwa must realize that its only GOD who has granted them the 25 years they have been together, and its only GOD who gives the “FREE GIFT OF LIFE” to all of us.Now Mr Phillip Chiyangwa and Mrs Chiyangwa must fear GOD and humble themselves before GOD and seek GOD’s guidance on their differences because the DEVIL is only there to steal ; to destroy and to kill. And with all these blessings they must thank they must slow-down ; be united and and ask GOD the Almighty to open their hearts for His word and ask GOD the Almighty to open their heart for His spirit and say GLORY BE TO GOD THE ALMIGHTY…as they count their blessings and enjoying the “FREE GIFT OF LIFE” that GOD the Almighty has given them.Anyone can go to the High Court but in their case High Court is not a solution because sooner or later they will walk out of the High Court being waste enemies and this will create a danger to their lives and will have a serious impact to the lives of their children and that is an offence against GOD the Almighty , because the word of GOD says so.You will all agree with me that there is no problem that GOD cannot solve and there is no burden that He cannot carry…I advise accordingly !!!

      do you know the kind of stresss this women went through?she had to deal with a lot she even got Hiv from this ex husband of hers besides if you dont want things to be split half way after a divorce just sign a prenup .Chiyangwa didnt sign it up that means he doesnt mind imimi vasina mari ndimi munenge muchi chema chema

  • Blackbeauty_1

    Money can’t by love its true, but in this case it buys plenty of sexual women for Mr Philip Chiyangwa and plenty of greed for Mrs Elizabeth Chiyangwa.

  • diblo dibala

    This marriage was based on material things.Be that as it may,your claim must not exceed 50% of the total assets you acquired together.Crazy claims show some greediness not worth true events on the ground.All the best becoz tsuromagen’a can bribe even the whole Supreme Court bench.

    • Mr C

      While Mrs Chiyangwa’s claim 85% of the wealth may be too high, I want people to bear in mind that when Mrs Chiyangwa married Phillip, he probably did not own anything of note. So it is wrong to say that the wealth belongs to Phillip as Common sense, presumably a young and single man, suggested. In a marriage, whatever you acquire during the subsistence of your married belongs to the two of you. Not to the man only. Men, let us not break the hearts of our wives by being selfish. You cannot go on enjoying yourself with other women. It is ungodly. Mwari havazvidi. Inga wani vakuru vakare vakataura vakati “Zingizi gonyera pamwe maruva enyika haaperi”.

    “Smash and grab” MaOne Blah Fidza, asi mune twunhu wena, looks like you own half of Zimbabwe, ndimi ma Land baron chaiwo.

    • JZ

      Reality is all 15million of us can’t own land. Those who have the privilege of owning land must use it productively and contribute to the economy. If anyone who owns land is doing that we have nothing to worry. if land is idle it must be conserved and not become barren. The social contract is if you own land you have responsibility to some extent to those who can’t be as equally productive as you because they dont have large tracts of land. Any failure by the landed elite to reduce poverty and look after our economy eventually leads to another land revolution because people can suffer for a while but they know when our society has false equity. The last land revolution must be a reminder to the current elite.

    I think she has a fallback position. 85% is just to try and scare Fidza so he can make a substantial offer. But all the same ,money or no money I think there is need to respect your spouse and not flaunt yo relationships in public. Remember how Fidza once spoke openly about his relationship and sexual escapades with Makosi Msambasi in an interview with some British broadcaster and got $50000 for it…How pathetic…

    Chiyangwa has always been a cruel person, everyone knows that but everyone also knows that he is a serial womanizer hence this woman’s story sounds dubious. How can she only find out in 2013? Plus 85%? Divorce gracefully don’t lose public sympathy and your own morality by making such outrageous claims


      Thomas you are right. There is a high risk of losing public sympathy from moral Zimbabweans even if Phillip has his shortcomings.

  • Pindirai Nhasi

    I salute Elizabeth Chiyangwa for finally seeing the light. This is a typical case of male dominance in this partriach society. This is a woman who has endured all forms of violence from a spouse, intimidation, fear, emotional tortures, verbal abuse, physical abuse and many other. Mr Chiyanga has boasted publicly about his many improper affairs with many women, young, old, beauty Queens, prostitutes, models,Miss Zimbabwes etc, in Zimbabwe out of Zimbabwe and he treated his wife Elizabeth in the most inhumane manner as he did not respect her and continued to cause more and more emotion injury to her. Money does not buy happiness. Elizabeth lived a life of torture. This is a test case of all high profile divorces happening in this country and we hope the courts will see reason and treat her fairly. We have see many women in high divorces cases walking out of the marriages with nothing because our courts in reality are still biasied towards men, even women judges like Rita Makarau has no soft sport for women as her judgements have left a lot of women and children homeless. We also wait to see what the women`s movement in this country will do to ensure that Elizabeth Chiyangwa is treated fairly by the courts and the media. Mr Chiyangwa is a bad role model to most young people in Zimbawbwe. I support you Elizabeth and be strong, you are a woman of God and he is on your side right now. We will continue to pray for you because you finally deserve your happiness and to celebrate the gift of life that God gave you, You do not need Phillip, let his small house finish him. I can tell you that all of them will start to lay claims on him one by one. Murume upi asinganyare anoita kunge ndiye enga anogona kunyenga vakadzi panyika pano.

      1 Corinthians 7:10-17
      To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. To the rest I say (I, not the Lord) that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

    Elizabeth Chiyangwa must also demand through the High Court that Mr Phillip Chiyangwa is tested for HIV and she must also get tested. We encourage all women who have slept with this man to come forward and lay claims. This will be an example to the many big chefs, business man, chief executives , politicians in public, private companies who are abusing women and girls using materials things. They must all lay claims and damages for HIV. Otherwise we will never win the war against AIDS. I am so angry to see a women still being treated like this. This is an issue of gender, traditional, religious and cultural practices and we must end this as a country.

    • BishopLazarus

      Your only folly is in thinking that women who have sex with big fish are being abused. They want it. They look for it. When you grow up you will understand that. The picture of innocent little girls who are victims of sexual predators is naive. Get a bit of money in your pocket and this too will become clear to you. An 18 year old can plot to bed a 40 year old man. I remember a few years back receiving a message from a woman who vowed that “ndichakukwira chete.”

    shame on u Chiyangwa, looting farms and properties under the veil of “black empowerment” and “land reform”. Am sure by publishing this report, the Herald has delivered your head on a platter to the President.

  • jacktheswede

    Oh my word! Dr Phil makashanda baba but the long suffering Elizabeth has always been by your side and i strongly believe kuti its NOT out of greed or malice that she is seeking this divorce…baba munovadawo vakadzi and its amazing that she has withstood your shenanigans for so long. Settle up sir 50/50

  • NK

    How many farms where allocated to Chiyangwa and why does he have so many hectares

  • svuzva

    ndo zvazvinoita kana ukasatendeka pane umwe wako but hey bla fidza mapfidza dai mukatorerwa iyoyo chaiyo 85% so it can be examplery to all cheating husbands out there.STICK TO ONE FAITHFUL PARTNER

  • mafikizolo

    Its a real miracle that these have been together for this long this guy is a Casanova. This is bad for a leader …bad role modelling for the young ones. The big ones are coming down …It was Khaya Moyo, Francis Nhema, Chombo, Nguni etc now Fidza kkkk

  • Muzambiringa

    Merry Christmas Mr Chiyangwa!

  • Mimi

    It was just a matter of time before Chiyangwa’s marriage crumbled. Chiyangwa is a womaniser since God knows when. And whilst it might be correct that varume or vakadzi ndevekutorerana, kana zvarwadza one has a right to opt out and stay in peace forever after. Chiyangwa should just give Elizabeth what she deserves, 25 years living with such a beast handi nyore. Kuzoti HIV/AIDS hazvisati zvapinda mudariro. Most women that I know can tolerate their husbands philandaring so long as the husband gives the wife “respect” nekaconjugal rights here and there. It’s just that Chiyangwa ane show-off kani inotobhowa. Am sure Gushungo is having the last laugh. Elizabeth ngaataure zvese in the Courts so she gets what she deserves and leave this moron.

  • phillip

    why 85%?

  • marjorie

    Publicity stant , lets watch these two will never devorce

  • Roger Chamembe

    I personally know the woman from personal business dealings for 25 years.She is a businesswoman in her own right.She really was holding the family together. She is another businesswoman in the mold of Mrs Chiwenga the first. The chickens have come home to roost!

  • mm

    no one knows how thy acqrd e wealth they have and besides his wife can not just claim 85% from nowhere she knows what shes doing, and mybe mr chiyangwa dnt have anything the time they got married if tht is the case then she has every right… who wants to stay in an abusive relationship anyway?

  • dzisina

    she is a gold digger she have discovered age have taken its toll so she want to shift wealth to her side so that her family will cherish 25 years of labour in bed. Its clear that its not Dr phill who is moving out of marriage but it is the old lady with a motive to enrich dzidza re kwavo god Luke Dr Phill.

  • Jonson

    Bravo to this woman. She is clever as they come. She is mastermind ,patiently waited for 25years until the wealth was bigger. Now she be going for the jugular, and I hope she bleeds him a significant bit on the regular. Get yours Elizabeth!!

  • tendai

    She asking for 85% but she is expecting 45-65%.. hmmm

  • Mimi

    It will be interesting to hear what our government has to say with the wealth especially mafarms mentioned in this messy divorce. And isu the voters we are supposed to fold our hands while almost all these Big Fishes amass so much wealth that they actually do not need. Quite disappointing. No wonder the British and Americans will never forgive us, who can forgive us with this kind of behavior???? Chombo & Marian’s circus revealed more worms than anything, Simon Khaya Moyo has divorced and remarried, Nhema has divorced and the list is endless. And all these guys are supposed to be Zimbabwe’s role models – my foot.

    Billionaire, seems Strive is not the one and only!

    The man is required to provide the woman with her marital rights; food,
    clothing, and sex. [Exodus 21:10]

    If the man refuses to provide the woman with her marital rights;
    food, clothing, and sex, then he is required to release her but it is his
    decision, not hers. He is the only one who can issue a Bill of Divorcement. A
    woman who has been defrauded can do her best to influence such a man with
    whatever legal means she has at her disposal but she cannot divorce him because
    she does not possess him any more than an arm possesses the body. Its unfortunate Mrs Chiyangwa you cant divorce your husband since you as a woman belongs exclusively to the man.

  • Tozvireva

    I thought the “one man one farm” policy still work. MDC has been right all along to call for a land audit. This is greedy at it’s worst

  • jore

    there is no mercy when it comes to divorce. Its a question of showing each other’s nackedness. I tell you if he does not meet, her demads, obviously not the 85% she is talking of, we will here of how that wealth was acquired.
