Two cousins have married in Bulawayo in a union that has torn apart the families. Lewis Makoni (37) has wed his biological aunt’s daughter, Portia Sibanda (22).
“Although the wedding was attended mostly by church members, senior members from the Makoni and Sibanda families were conspicuous by their absence. The arrangement caused serious disagreements within the Makoni family.

“Lewis is alleged to have defied his elder brothers, other aunts and uncles’ order to stop him from marrying Portia.

He bluntly told them that even though he knew that Portia was his cousin he was following his heart to marry her. A senior member of the Makoni family who spoke to B-Metro confirmed that the marriage took place but it was without their blessings.

“I can confirm that the marriage took place but we didn’t go there as we felt it was a disgrace to the family. Some church members confided with us that the two were joined at their church but some of us feel the arrangement was really a sham to the family.”

When contacted for comment Portia who chose to keep tight-lipped handed over the phone to her husband, who said:“What is it that you want to know from us? Go and inquire from those people who gave you the story. It is not our business to discuss such matters with you.”
