The director general of the Standards Association of Zimbabwe, Eve Gadzikwa and her husband Celestine Gadzikwa are embroiled in a messy divorce in which she is accused of committing adultery with a married man.
Celestine Gadzikwa, a businessman and Varichem financial director, alleges that he initiated the divorce process to avoid humiliation as a there is a possibility that “women and woman” with whom Eve is in conflict with over her boyfriend have threatened to sue her and expose damaging pictures, audios and videos.
Eve on the other hand blames the breakdown of the marriage on Celestine, whom she blames of failing to discharge his obligations as a husband over the past five years.
She is demanding 50 percent distribution of the family property, including shares in CM Gadzikwa (Pvt) Ltd. She said:
I contend that the only way that the divorce court can make a fair and equitable order would be to have the company joined as a party to the proceedings so that its entire operations can be looked into.
Eve is the Secretary of the 13th president of Africa Union standards body, the Africa Organisation for Standardisation (ARSO) and is the past board chairperson of the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and past chairperson of the Institute of Directors (IoD) Zimbabwe.
