Socialite Pokello Nare, 32, has filed a notice of intention to defend summons issued by her Ghanaian husband, Elikem Kumordzie, 29, seeking a decree of divorce against her.
Her estranged husband, who she met during Big Brother Africa (BBA) in 2013, last month filed for divorce against her saying he lost affection and love before he declared their relationship “irreparable.”
She placed the notice last week on September 28, a day after she was served with the summons.
Kumordzie, a popular Ghanaian fashion designer, is being represented by Harare lawyer, Rungano Mahuni of Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers.
Kumordzie said his jealous wife was harming his professional work as she got uncomfortable when he plays romantic roles in movies.
Pokello’s husband also wants a divorce decree order that custody of their minor child be awarded to her with him exercising reasonable access on agreed holidays. He also wants to pay $500 monthly as maintenance.
The two lovebirds have been separated for the past year.
Pokello moved back to Zimbabwe leaving her husband in Ghana.
Pokello and Kumordzie were married under the Marriages Act at Harare on September 28, 2015, and the marriage still subsists.
“They have not stayed together as husband and wife for the past year since September 2017,” reads Kumordzie’s declaration.
The two met in the BBA house in 2013 and got engaged in 2014 and had a traditional marriage in 2015.
