Singer Dick Chingaira aka Chinx’s second wife Ntombizodwa has revealed that she still wanders the earth without anything to show for her husband’s hard work as she was left out of his estate.
In an interview, Zodwa bemoaned the treatment she is getting after her husband’s death.
“I’m now being treated like I was his whore, I was his wife. My father in-law and my husband’s sisters are the ones that came to pay lobola to my people. His children are there. The whole world knew that Cde Chinx had two wives. Why was I treated that way?
“Rangu barika ndoo raita sei? Mutemo wakandiregerera. Anga asingazive kuti comrade vane vakadzi vaviri ndiyani? Nyika yakandipandukira (What was so special about our polygamous union? The law let me down. Who did not know that the comrade had two wives? The whole nation turned its back on me).”
Zodwa insisted that she does not want anything for herself, but for her children.
“Vana havana chavakawana (the kids didn’t get anything). It affected them a lot and in turn it affected me too. I’m the one who has young kids. I believe that something should have been set aside for my kids to finish school and so forth.
Commenting on the matter Chinx’s benefactor, Joseph Nyadzayo said he has been working on a film based on the life of Chinx since 2012, says all the proceeds will go towards the second wife’s upkeep.
Nyadzayo said Ntombizodwa’s mortgage still needs to be cleared. He pledged to ensure that whatever proceeds are realized from the film will go towards that.
