A Zimbabwean woman reportedly married two men before her polyandrous relationship was exposed.
Mollen Gamira who hails from Mutare was in a love triangle with her husband, Washington Bvirindi of Bvirindi Village and her lover, Tafadzwa Manomano of Chitiyo Village.
She allegedly stayed with her husband and her lover for months before the husband became aware of it and chased her from their matrimonial home.
Mollen’s love affair with Tafadzwa is said to have started in February, a few months after she and Washington had relocated from South Africa.
Confirming the development to The Manica Post, Mollen said that she tricked both men and treated them both as her husbands. She claims that she lied to her lover Tafadzwa that she was a single mother of one.
It is true that I left home early this year to work at a night club and that is where I met Manomano. I was still married to Bvirindi.
At first, I tricked both men and equally treated them as my husbands but that has changed now and l am now staying with Manomano.
When I fell in love with Manomano, I lied to him that I only had one child and that I was single.
We decided that I should leave my job at the nightclub and cohabit. I obliged and we started staying together as husband and wife.
… I left Bvirindi because he is violent. During our 10 years of marriage, he was very abusive toward me.
This is why I did not tell him that I was already someone else’s wife. I feared that he would assault or even kill me.
Acting Chief Zimunya has also confirmed the development as he condemned Mollen’s polyandrous relationship saying that it was taboo.
The two men work for the same company, so when the other one was off duty, Gamira would stay with him.
This is unheard of and it is taboo for a woman to be married to two men at the same time.
Both men did not know that they were being tricked. Bvirindi thought that his wife would be on duty as she used to work at a nightclub at Chikosi Business Centre in Rowa.
When visiting her husband in Bvirindi, she would lie to Manomano that she was going to see her child.
Mollen Gamira has since been summoned before Chief Zimunya’s court.
