ZANU-PF national chairman and former Zimbabwe Ambassador to South Africa Simon Khaya Moyo tied the knot with Ms Margaret Mhambi at a private wedding ceremony in Greystone Park, Harare, last month.

Details of the wedding were hard to come by as the couple chose to be tight-lipped, but a close friend said the garden wedding, that was held under the stars, was attended by 30 close relatives and friends of the happy couple on Africa Day.

The choice of day underpinned Khaya Moyo's Pan African ideals, the source said.

Heads of Christian Denominations chairperson Dr Goodwill Shana solemnised the wedding.

A relative who spoke on condition of anonymity said the groom (66) and his 55-year-old bride, a business woman from Bulawayo, had been together for 12 years having met after Khaya Moyo separated from his ex-wife Ms Sibonokuhle Getrude Ngwenya many years ago.

Sources close to the family said Khaya Moyo and his sweetheart delayed their wedding because his divorce to Ms Ngwenya had not been finalised.

The divorce was granted on February 20 this year.

The wedding, which was described as a small but classy affair, had been expected for a long time by close friends and relatives of the couple.
