Muchinguri poised for prime mover of the year; triumph in politics, top job, new boyfriend too

MUTARE -Higher Education Minister Oppah Muchinguri has her stocks rising; in 2014 she floored longtime political liberation war rival Joice Mujuru and Dydimus Mutasa in Manicaland, gained a top rate ministerial job and now she has a brand new spanking energetic boyfriend too – what a year she has had.

Her love life has been a subject of much speculation throughout her political life.

But Minister Oppah Muchinguri has come out in the open with her new man. She has confirmed that she is now officially married to a Pentecostal clergyman — Bishop Anthony Kashiri.

Muchinguri flaunted her new-found love around in public last Thursday at Mutare Polytechnic during the provincial co-ordination committee meeting and Headlands Hall where thousands of Zanu-PF supporters from Headlands constituency had converged to petition the party leadership to expel their representative in the National Assembly, Cde Didymus Mutasa, from the party and august House.

“Where is he? My better half, where are you? Oh, there he is! This is my husband, and we are happily married,” said Muchinguri, to some wild ululations and whistling from the jubilant crowd. “I am now Amai Kashiri,” she added. “You continue to refer to me as Amai Muchinguri because probably you did not know that I am now married.

“I am now Amai Kashiri,” she said with a broad smile. The couple posed briefly for a photo-shoot from journalists.“We have all along been keeping a low profile as we tried to avoid paparazzi. You know what they do and are capable of,” she said.

Muchinguri was previously married to Botswana-based trader Mr Tapiwa Rushesha and their marriage ended in the late 1990s and she reverted to her family name of Muchinguri.
