CHIKOMBA – The family of the late Tafireyi Mandizha is tearing apart as family members fight for his estate.
Mandizha, a well-known teacher and a businessman, succumbed to a kidney failure ailment on 8 August this year and made a fortune from his Liam Beverages company based in Bulawayo.
It is alleged that his elder sister, Usebia Mandizha is allegedly claiming one of the deceased’s many cars and other properties despite her being excluded from the will amid reports that there was bad blood between the two.
In an interview with The Midweek Watch, Mandizha’s wife, Annunciata Dzvimbo (34) said her husband left a will that insisted that his elder sister should not get anything after they chased him away from their home.
“My husband’s eldest sister, Usebia Mandizha is claiming the property of my husband. She is demanding a car which my late husband bought for our eldest daughter after she passed her Ordinary Levels.
“We worked together with my husband so these things belong to me and my husband. He left a will and he insisted that nothing should be given to them,” said Dzvimbo.
Uesebia Mandizha could not be reached for comment as her phone was unreachable several times.
Mandizha, who died aged 41, is survived by his wife and four children.
