Own Correspondent|Daughter to the late great musician, national hero, Oliver Mtukudzi has declared she has had enough of scoreless footballer Tinashe Nengomasha.
Samantha Mtukudzi has filed for divorce from football the legendary footballer who she accuses of failing intimacy for over two years.
Samantha, says in her court papers that they have been living apart for over two years after their relationship broke down.
“The plaintiff (Samantha) avers that the marriage relationship between the parties has so irretrievably broken down that there are no prospects of restoration of a normal marriage relationship, more particularly in that the parties have lost all love and affection for each other and the parties have not lived together as a husband and wife for a continuous period exceeding 24 months,” her lawyers said.
The couple had two children together aged 12 and 14. Samantha said she wants custody of the two minors.
She is also asking the High Court to order their houses in South Africa and Zimbabwe sold, with the money being shared equally.
“It would be fair and equitable, in the event that this Honourable Court grants a decree of divorce, that the immovable property between the parties be sold and the proceeds be divided with each party being awarded 50 percent of the net proceeds. Either party would be free to buy the other out,” her lawyers pleaded.
Samantha is, however, asking a court to allow her to hang on to the furniture.
“It would be fair and equitable in the event of this Honourable Court granting a decree of divorce that an order be made that the plaintiff be awarded furniture which furnishes the Zimbabwe Hillside house and the plaintiff be awarded the furniture which furnished the South African house,” read the summons.
Nengomasha is yet to respond.
This is Nengomasha’s second divorce after the footballer hurriedly divorced his first wife Farai Victoria Mlotshwa in 2011 shortly before marrying Samantha.
Samantha was banished from their family home by Oliver Mtukudzi for getting pregnant to Nengomasha out of wedlock.
