Tsvangirai’s ‘Widow’ Falls On Hard Times , Faces Arrest

AQCUILINIA Kayidza Pamberi, one of  the women who in 2011 was alleged to among a host of women suspected to be in an affair with the late MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai, has fallen on hard times.

Pamberi, who is based in Bulawayo, is set to lose two luxury vehicles after they were attached by the Sheriff of the Court over a $5 000 debt.

Pamberi’s two cars, a Mercedes Benz and Nissan Hardbody will be put up for auction by the court. In addition, Pamberi might be arrested as she is facing a criminal case where she allegedly conned her friend — Ms Irene Chinyanda of $5 000.

Ms Chinyanda met Pamberi in the CBD, where she told the latter that she was seeking to raise $575 to pay the Deputy Sheriff for a writ of execution for a case that was ruled in her favour at the High Court.

Pamberi told Ms Chinyanda that she had a connection who wanted $10 000 in cash, so that he could assist her with the matter. Ms Chinyanda is reported to have told Pamberi that she did not have $10 000 but had $5 000, which she transferred to her bank account.


But she was lying and failed to repay the money leading to the matter being reported to the police.

Pamberi and Tsvangirai were linked after Pamberi’s late husband Jacob Mandeya made an impassioned plea to the MDC leader to stay away from his wife.

Mr Mandeya suspected that Tsvangirai was dating his wife behind his back. Before he died, Mandeya alleged that he suspected that Tsvangirai was having an affair with his wife and had caused untold suffering at his home and traumatised his two daughters.
