BUSINESSMAN and former Dynamos Football Club secretary Mr Brian Kashangura is seeking divorce from his wife of 13 years. Mr Kashangura, a former police officer and public prosecutor, co-owns Forest Security Private Limited and Brendon Security with his wife Mrs Gilliet Sarudzai Kashangura.
The businessman filed the divorce summons after a fall-out with the woman.
Mr Kashangura accuses his wife of infidelity and he contends that the marriage was now irretrievably broken.
Recently, Mrs Kashangura, a lawyer and former manager with a local bank, appeared before the Harare Magistrates’ Court facing fraud charges.
She is being accused of taking advantage of the husband’s illness and trying to replace him with two new directors in Brendon Security, a firm they co-owned.
Magistrate Mr Don Ndirowei remanded the woman out of custody to August 6 on US$100 bail.
According to the divorce summons filed at the High Court by Scanlen and Holderness law firm on June 20, the couple was married in April 1999 and the marriage was solemnised on February 28, 2009.
Mr Kashangura argues that he had lost love and affection and trust for his wife and that there were no prospects of reconciliation.
“The defendant (Mrs Kashangura) has improperly associated herself with another man, which association the plaintiff finds irreconcilable with a continued marital relationship,” read part of the declaration.
During the subsistence of their marriage, the two acquired two immovable properties in Mabelreign and Whitecliff, vehicles and lots of other movable properties.
The two are joint directors of two security companies in which they own 50 percent each. Mr Kashangura has offered the wife the Mabelreign matrimonial home, while he takes the Whitecliff house.
He is seeking an order that allows equal sharing of the property.
Mr Kashangura is also claiming a share from the US$78 000 that Mrs Kashangura got as a package from her former employer Interfin Bank.
Mrs Kashangura is yet to respond to the summons.
