Lovemore Chikova and Tendai Mugabe
But sources said he will soon clear the air and announce Ms Tembo as his new wife after going through days of soul searching.
The Harare woman at the centre of the controversy, Ms Elizabeth Guma (35) (nee Macheka) - who runs a boutique in the Avenues area - has been in love with the PM for the past year.
Sources said the two met at the Harare International Airport while Ms Guma was on her way to China to buy stock for her boutique.
"When you wrote the first story that Mr Tsvangirai had married, I thought it was all about Elizabeth. She has been in love with him and many people close to her are aware of the relationship. Right now, Elizabeth is in hiding and rarely comes out."
"Please, do not write the story because I am not in love with Tsvangirai," said Ms Guma.
It is understood the e-mails were meant to assure Elizabeth that she was now his only lover. One of the e-mails was reportedly sent to Ms Tembo.
Ms Guma was once sued for adultery by the businessman's wife at the civil courts.
PM Tsvangirai's spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka last night said his boss will make an announcement about his marriage to Ms Tembo "at the right time".
