Gono’s daughter weds, Mugabe slams small house culture

Gono’s daughter weds, Mugabe slams small house culture

The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe has urged people to observe the sanctity of marriage and desist from extra-marital affairs.

Cde Mugabe was speaking at the wedding of Praise Emily Gono and Tshalahika Malaba.

Praise is the daughter of former Reserve Bank Governor, Dr Gideon Gono, while her husband is the son of former Chamber of Mines Chief Executive Officer, Mr Joseph Malaba.

In his congratulatory speech to the newly-weds, Cde Mugabe said those who are in marriage should be faithful to their spouses and be wary of negative influences from friends and relatives that may want to tear their union apart.

“We hear of small houses. Sometimes I tease my ministers saying some of you have small houses. If only we knew those small houses, perhaps we would go and destroy them. That should not be allowed.

“What do you want a small house for? What happened to your big house? You are married to one person and one person alone and if you had wanted you would not have entered this type of union, but would have tried a traditional wedding,” said President Mugabe.

Cde Mugabe urged the couple to be independent and work for their sustenance as they have shown maturity by starting their own home.

Dr Gono chronicled his daughter’s upbringing and wished her marital bliss with her husband, while Mr Malaba said he never doubted that the two would get married as they have been friends for 11 years.

The First Family blessed the newly-weds with a dinning room suite, a dinning set and US$6 000, while Bona Mugabe and her brothers gave a gift of US$4 000.

Dr Gono gave the couple a house in Borrowdale Brooke.

Guests were entertained by the bridal team, while the First Lady also joined on the dance floor in what was indeed a memorable day for the Malaba and Gono families.

The wedding was also attended by the Zanu PF National Chairman, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, Zanu PF Secretary for Administration Cde Didymus Mutasa and captains of industry.
