The Vice President, Kembo Mohadi's messy divorce case has exposed how government officials and their families live lavishly as ex-wife, Tambudzani claims US$13 000 is what she requires monthly to maintain a luxurious life she was used to while still married to the VP.
The duo's marriage collapsed last year and just after the nullification of the pair's holy matrimony, Tambudzani petitioned the court seeking post-divorce maintenance.
It is her argument that the couple purchased various businesses which were now being controlled by Mohadi.
Mohadi is believed to be one of the richest people in Beitbridge and previously ran a storage company called Malindi which has a contract with the government owned Zimra to process the storage and clearance of imported vehicles in the border town.
Tambudzani claimed that she is now surviving from a minimal allowance from her position as a Senator.
In her application Tambudzani insisted that it was just and equitable for her to be awarded the sum of $13 394 as maintenance, an amount which would enable her to enjoy and maintain a standard of living reasonably comparable to the standard of living she used to enjoy while living with Mohadi.
The VP said he could not support Tambudzani on the basis of the marriage vows that he made.
Tambudzani said it was just and equitable for her to be awarded the sum of $13 394 per month as maintenance, which would enable her to enjoy and maintain a standard of living reasonably comparable to the standard of living she used to enjoy while living with Mohadi.
