Regional leaders and high profile dignitaries have snubbed Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and Elizabeth Macheka's marriage ceremony held at Raintree in Umwinsdale in Harare.
Of the foreign dignitaries who were expected at the ceremony, only the Swazi Prime Minister, Barnabas Sibusiso Dlamini and ambassadors from the MDC-T paymasters, the European Union and ambassadors resident in Zimbabwe were present.
Prime Minister Tsvangirai and Ms Macheka have been officially joined together by Reverend Patrick Makaka of the Society of Jesus Catholic Church in a traditional wedding ceremony.
The two were not granted a marriage certificate in line with the Marriages Act Chapter 5.11 as following Locardia Karimatsenga’s objection which was upheld by the Magistrate’s Court.
The traditional wedding ceremony comes after a Magistrate’s Court cancelled a marriage licence issued earlier to the two after Ms Karimatsenga Tembo objected to the marriage saying she is customarily married to Prime Minister Tsvangirai.
