Pokello and Elikem’s divorce proceeding is getting messy, New Day is reporting.
According to the Zimbabwean paper, Elikem, through his lawyers, Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers, petitioned the High Court on September 11, 2018, seeking to nullify his three-year-old marriage to Pokello on grounds that their union was “irretrievably broken.”
Mnay people, who had followed the failure of the couple’s marriage, had expected a smooth court proceeding, but New Day is reporting that Pokello is contesting the application.
“Please be advised to take notice that the defendant (Pokello) has entered an appearance to defend the above action at 14:30pm on this September 28, 2018. Further, take notice that the defendant was served with summons on September 27, 2018,” Part of Pokello’s notice reportedly reads.
While it is unclear why she is contesting her estranged husband’s application, New Day notes that “Elikem also said he is offering to maintain the couple’s minor child, whose custody must be awarded to its mother.”
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
