Late musician Oliver Mtukudzi’s first wife Melody Murape says she is not interested in getting any share from Tuku’s estate.
In an interview Murape said she is the one who divorced Tuku, so she has no right to get Tuku’s wealth “Let me make it clear, Tuku did not divorce me but it’s me who surrendered as l was against polygamy.”
Murape also dismissed people’s assertions that she is after Tuku’s money “What l worked with Tuku, l got, l don’t want to lie .What he had now was for him and Daisy. I am not greedy and l don’t even have power to claim anything from them.”
Moreover Tuku’s first wife said, after she had divorced Tuku she then received a house which was in Chitungwiza and she is asking for the one in Eastlea to be sold since both were interested in it.
Mtukudzi was laid to rest at his rural area last week in Madziwa where thousands gathered including foreigners and government officials.
