Simba Chikore wants all properties acquired during the subsistence of marriage with Bona Mugabe, through any means, to be shared equally.
They share assets including 21 farms, over 25 upmarket residential properties, cash, companies, and movable properties worth millions of US dollars.
At the same time, Bona Mugabe prefers to handle the property issues separately from the divorce proceedings to avoid delays in granting the divorce decree.

Bona Mugabe filed for divorce in March 2023 citing a breakdown in the relationship with no hope of restoration. The couple has three children, and Bona seeks full custody and maintenance of US$2 700 per child until they reach maturity.
While Bona Mugabe sees the marriage as irretrievably broken down, Chikore believes their marriage can be restored with genuine counselling and family support.
Chikore accuses Bona Mugabe of refusing to settle and falsely accusing him of wanting her properties, but he claims only what the couple acquired during their union.
Simba Chikore denies claiming Bona Mugabe’s properties and argues that he contributed to assets acquired during their marriage through savings from his previous jobs as a pilot and farmer and earnings and donations from his father-in-law.
