PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe gave stepson Russell Goreraza, who got married in Harare on Saturday, US$20 000 while his wife, Grace, chipped in with 20 heifers.

Russell is Grace’s son from her first marriage to Stanley Goreraza, an Air Force of Zimbabwe pilot who is believed to be a military attaché in China.

He wed girlfriend Gladys Chiwaya at a colourful garden ceremony attended by senior cabinet ministers and Zanu PF officials as well as relatives of the family.

Those present included Zanu-PF chairman, Simon Khaya Moyo, central bank governor Gideon Gono, foreign Affairs Minister, Simbarashe Mumbengegwi, deputy minister Mike Bimha and minister in the President’s office, Didymus Mutasa.

Superstar Oliver Mtukudzi, backed by the Police Band, and urban groover Roki provided entertainment.

Grace Mugabe said she was delighted to be a mother in law and thanked her husband for helping raise Russell.

“I would like to thank Baba VaMugabe for helping me raise this child,” she said. “I know you know that I am a grateful wife,” she said.

She welcomed her daughter-in-law into the family and warned her son against domestic violence.

“Do not turn this girl into a punching bag,” she said. “Gladys is your life partner and you should teach each other.”

President Mugabe also praised Gladys saying she was a well groomed young lady.

“She (Gladys) showed us that she is a well-cultured woman. Some would have shown traits of Western culture,” said Mugabe. “Everywhere we go — Zambia, Tanzania and Malawi — culture is followed.”

He also expressed concern over the increasing incidents of divorce and their impact on spreading HIV/AIDS in the country.

“The incidents of divorce are alarming,” he said. “They are disintegrating the families. It leaves the burden on the grandparents.”
