Zimbabwe's Tsvangirai to tie the knot

2012-09-07 12:19

Cape Town - Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has invited nearly a dozen African leaders and other global high-rollers to his wedding on 15 September, in a telling show of the MDC leader’s pulling power, a report says.

The Daily News online reported that Tsvangirai's courtiers would not release the guest list citing security reasons and other protocols, and his spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka would neither confirm nor deny the number of available heads of state.

"There is a committee [working on the issue] and we are not certain yet who is coming or not," said Tamborinyoka.

The report said about 500 invites had been sent out to friends and relatives and it was understood that Botswana's President Ian Khama, his Tanzanian counterpart Jakaya Kikwete and Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga were among those who had already confirmed their attendance.

Tsvangirai is tying the knot with businesswoman Elizabeth Macheka following the death of his first wife Susan in a March 2009 car crash.

The wedding is set to take place at the scenic and exclusive RainTree Gardens in Umwinsdale, Harare.
