Guests who attended the wedding of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s son have dismissed an article circulating on social media that the First Lady Auxilia clashed with MDC-T leader Thokozani Khupe.
The viral article claimed the First lady was mad at Khupe for attending the wedding and went on to slap the latter.
However the allegations were dismissed as false as Khupe did not attend the wedding.
Speaking to Zimlive,Norton Legislator Themba Mliswa confirmed that Khupe was not there.
“She never came to the wedding. There were only a few people there. The reception probably 200 people only, family and friends. She doesn’t fit into that category at all,” said Mliswa.
“The friends are well-known, these are long-time friends of the families of the bride and the groom. Not even Zanu PF people were there, the only Zanu PF there was the chairperson Oppah Muchinguri, Chris and Monica Mutsvangwa are family friends for a long time, July Moyo is a family friend for a long time. It was Emmerson Tanaka and his wife’s wedding, young people, let’s be fair on this.”
Presidential spokesman George Charamba also shot down the story via his Twitter ghost account @jamwanda2.
“Yours truly was at the Mnangagwa wedding from start to end. When you hear a yarn about an alleged scuffle between the First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa and Madame Thokozani Khupe who did not attend the wedding, you are left both dumbfounded and bemused by the runaway fiction!,”
