Described as a ‘playboy’ by Central Intelligence Organisation officers who vetted him before their lavish March 2014 wedding attended by African presidents, Chikore was allowed to marry Bona after their report was ignored.Grace Mugabe is also said to have put pressure on Bona to marry so that she could deliver grandchildren to the ageing dictator before he died.
Bona Mugabe has been linked to Sam Mtukudzi, who died mysteriously, and the son of a Tanzanian businessman.
One of the most important African performers, the guitarist’s blend of mbaqanga and jiti, mbira orchestras and the traditional drumming styles of his Kore Kore tribal group is frequently called Tuku Music.
Chikore has been linked to several other women recently.
According to one source, the Mugabes are concerned that Bona has not fallen pregnant, months after her parents delivered her to her husband claiming that she was a virgin and after the poor Chikore family was forced to pay a whopping $35 000 bride price.
Chikore, a former head-boy at St Johns High in the capital, stood accused of having Casanova tendencies at the time, on top of unclear aviation qualifications as a pilot with an Asian airline, which dismissed that it was his employer recently.
"Four months ago Bona accompanied the President to Japan on official visit," said one of the insiders in government, who also happens to be related to the Mugabes.
Now, the Mugabes worry about reports of Chikore going out with other women.
Notably, he has been in contact with Emelda Mudzamiri, the gospel diva he dumped to marry Bona.
