“I write to raise a serious objection to the officiation of marriage between Willard Mswati Gomani (Inkosi Gomani IV) and Rishaladza Khanyisa Mathebula by your church scheduled to take place on or prior to 2nd November, 2019 or soon thereafter.”
“The basis of my objection is that Willard and I are still married and that divorce proceedings are currently before the Magistrate’s Court sitting at Lilongwe have not been concluded. Suffice to mention that the said Willard and I have a child together named Mswati Gomani born on 14th February, 2019,” reads the letter in part.
The wedding of Chief Gomani IV of Ntcheu and Rishaladza Khanyisa Mathebula of South Africa is slated to take place on 2nd November, 2019.
On 20 October, 2019, there was a shower for the bride which was attended by Mary Chilima, wife to the former Vice President, Saulos Chilima.
However, royal family’s inside sources confided in the Maravi Post that the move to block the wedding is the work of governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
Its an alignment to Chilima as a threat since the committee has refused DDP to dominate the function.
There have been unformed reports that Gomani has a newly baby from a Lilongwe lady whom he has been dating for a while until the announcement of the November 4 wedding.
