The family of 23-year-old, Almarie Hall, who had an affair with President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s son, Kudakwashe David Mnangagwa, continue their fight to get back custody of the child that was born from the extra-marital affair that started when she was only 19 years old.
Mnangagwa was then 30 years old and already had 4 children (all boys) with his wife Rashida before he met 19 year old Almerie. She fell pregnant a year later and gave birth to a baby girl (Harmony Aneni Mnangagwa).
Controversial magistrate Lazini Ncube, infamous for a host of dodgy rulings over the years, presided over the case and said he had relied on an adverse report by a social worker that claimed Almerie had a long history of drug abuse and therefore was an unsuitable mother.
But a source who spoke to ZiMetro News insists Mnangagwa used his influence as the son of the president to coerce the social worker into writing a damning report.
They claim Mnangagwa was furious that Almerie had ended the affair and had threatened that he would take the baby away if she did not come back to the flat he was renting for her in Harare.
“David did this because she left him… he has money and power. He vowed to punish her and this is exactly what has happened,” the source said.
In recent Instagram posts seen by ZiMetro News Crew, the mother is still in pain from losing the baby and not being able to see her growth or play with daughter.
