Tinashe Nengomasha’s marriage is reportedly on the verge of collapse after his wife, Samantha, filed divorce summons against him.

According to New Zimbabwe, Samantha, daughter of the late veteran musician Oliver Mtukudzi, has filed a high court application seeking a decree of divorce against the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder.

Samantha said in her papers that her union with Nengomasha had collapsed to a point that there were no hopes of mending it.

She asked the court to grant her custody of the couple’s two minor children and for the sale of their immovable property.

The summons reads: “The plaintiff avers that the marriage relationship between the parties has so irretrievably broken down that there are no prospects of restoration of a normal marriage relationship more particularly in that the parties have lost all love and affection for each other and the parties have not lived together as a husband and wife for a continuous period exceeding 24 months.

“It would be fair and equitable, in the event that this Honourable Court grants a decree of divorce, that the immovable property between the parties be sold and the proceeds be divided with each party being awarded 50% of the net proceeds.

“Either party would be free to buy the other out.”

The case is yet to be set down for hearing.
