He recalled how they had met, at a birthday dinner for the late former MDC spokesperson Learnmore Jongwe’s wife, Rutendo, in 2000.

Chamisa, then the secretary general of the Zimbabwe National Students Union (Zinasu), said he had borrowed a vehicle – a Nissan Hardbody – from Tapiwa Mashakada, now a senior MDC figure, to go and impress girls at college.

“Rutendo said I’m introducing you to my cousin, and when I saw her I thought to myself, this is a woman to settle down with,” Chamisa said.

“I had no cent to my name and she repelled my advances. She said I’m a lawyer, you know. I said I’m a lawyer too. Which university did I go to, she asked. I said I haven’t enrolled to study law, but I will,” he added to laughter from the crowd.

The courtship went on for six months before she relented, he revealed.-Zimlive
