70-year-old Pres. Robert Mugabe’s minister, weds his 23 yr old lover
Zimbabwe’s Matebeleland North Provincial Affairs minister, Cain Mathema, 70, married his youthful wife, Bathabetsoe Nare, a former Midlands State University student who graduated in November, at a colourful wedding at Southerton Comfort Lodge in Bulawayo.
Mathema dumped his first wife for a maid who was then, 20, before marrying her customarily in 2009. He later dumped the maid-wife for Nare. The matter came to light when his ex-wife sued Mathema for adultery before their divorce.
Nare is said to have met Mathema at Mhlahlandlela Government Complex in Bulawayo when she was on attachment in 2014. He seems to be following in his boss’s footsteps after he (Mugabe) wedded a then youthful Grace Marufu in 1996. The age difference between the Mugabes is 42 years.
