FORMER Health deputy minister Edwin Muguti who was going through divorce proceedings with his wife, Tapiwa Muguti (nee Mukandi), will finally go separate ways after the two agreed that their marriage of 23 years could not be restored.

Muguti was challenging the divorce claim by his wife arguing that he wanted to keep the marriage but the two have since signed divorce consent papers which will see them parting ways.

His wife told court that they have since settled their dispute regarding separation and properties.

Muguti confirmed he was withdrawing his plea.

In the divorce claim, Mukandi had demanded to be awarded 100 percent share of the couple's Vainona property and another stand in Manresa, measuring 4 000 square meters, among other properties.

But the ex-minister had opposed the demands saying what his wife wanted in shares was not due to her. Muguti said he acquired Vainona stand on his own using proceeds from his previous divorce settlement.

He said the same stand was auctioned to satisfy a judgement debt but in the court papers, the two have indicated that all the disputes have been settled.
