President Emmerson Mnangagwa is alleged to have clashed with First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa after she found out about his allegged extra-marital affair with an accounting student at the Midlands State University (MSU).
According to online publication, Zimlive, the adulterous affair started when the student who has now been identified as
, had her attachment at the President’s farm in Kwekwe.
The publication goes on to allege that during the course of the affair, Mapfumo became pregnant and had a son who was later named Ethan Dumisani. Ironically, the initials of the child’s names spell ED, the name the President is popularly referred by in the media. He is reported to be 3 years of age now.
Mapfumo is reported to live in Kwekwe’s Gaika suburb where the President purchased a house for her.
The publication recently claimed that when the First Lady found out about the affair she was furious and charged at the President. A source who spoke to Zimlive said,
“Once she was tipped-off, she followed Mnangagwa to the farm unannounced. It was a riot when she got there. People ran for cover, including her husband who ran through a maize field with her in hot pursuit.”
Zimlive goes on to say that Mnangagwa’s marriage with Auxillia is “functional” but “there was no love”, with the two said to be “almost living apart”.
