The Tsvangirai family has attacked the late MDC leader’s widow, Elizabeth for holding a private church service at the Highlands mansion without them.

Tsvangirai’s brother, Manasa said he was surprised that Elizabeth convened a church service without input from their side of the family.

“I was not at the church service. No one from the Tsvangirai family knew about the church service. But the question is; who is the owner of the place where the church service was held? It certainly does not belong to us as Tsvangirai’s brothers but his kids. Why have a prayer meeting without the Tsvangirai family, if people want to have a church service why don’t they do it openly.”

The Tsvangirai family and Elizabeth are set for a bruising legal battle over Save’s estate.The family is accusing Elizabeth, of tinkering with his valuables and attempting to grab his plush $3 million mansion in Highlands.

Elizabeth has registered her late husband’s estate with the High Court, which includes a house in Strathaven, Harare, 45 head of cattle and six vehicles.

While Elizabeth and Sace had no children, Tsvangirai had nine children namely: Edwin, Vimbai, Milicent, Miriro, Ethen, Garikai, Rumbidzai, Vincent, and Richard.

Elizabeth has two children with different husbands.
