A Zimbabwe judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought against the country’s prime minister by an ex-lover to stop him marrying another woman this week.
Morgan Tsvangirai paid $36,000 and five cattle in traditional bride price for the woman he acknowledged had been his lover.
But the president denies formally marrying her and insists he paid damages to the family for making her pregnant. She then miscarried.
The president also plans to marry a 35 year old daughter of a Mugabe party loyalist in Harare on Saturday.
