Sungura maestro Tongai Dhewa Moyo's widow, Minenhle Mkhweli is likely to remarry, as she believes she is still young to be single. Dhewa's widow said she has had a full year of mourning her husband after which she can then consider remarrying.
"I assured myself that i should go for 12 months of mourning my husband then I can consider moving on. I am still quite young to start living as a single mother, so I thought it would be a good idea if I move on," said Dhewa's youthful widow.
Minenhle said she is a true Christian who does not believe in vowing on anything. She said she never vowed to Dhewa that she would stay single even after his death.
"We just lived like an ordinary couple. I never vowed to him that I would stay single after his death. However, I am happy that before my husband died I had managed to turn him to be a Christian. I something I will always cherish whenever I think of my husband," she said.
She added: "I haven't told my in-laws what I'm planning, but when we meet after a year of Tongai's death that is when I will share my future plans with them. I will, however always assist my late husband's children in various ways even if I remarry."
While she could neither confirm nor deny if she has already found 'a new better half', she only said Tongai Moyo and herself married in September 2002 and Dhewa had five children by then from his previous marriages.
