MARSHALL Munetsi yesterday paid lobola for his fiancée Anotida Makove.
The event was attended by both families and friends of the couple.
The France-based star is in the country during this international football break.
He flew in for the special event at the weekend.
Munetsi could not hide his excitement.
“First of all I want to thank God, who made this possible. We are happy that this day was a success,” he told H-Metro.
“I’m happy with the new chapter that has begun in my life.
“What has happened today is a proof of our love and we are happy that our family and friends have supported us.
“We are glad to share this day, and moments, with them.”
The couple will be tying the knot at a date and place yet to be revealed.
His fiancée Anotida says she’s grateful to God.
“This is an act of God’s favour, in our lives, and I’m thankful to him for giving me a friend and partner and, most of all, someone who knows the Lord.
“We share the same values and beliefs.
“He is someone I’ve always prayed for.
“I’m happy that God has answered our prayers and we were able to make our parents proud.”
Munetsi’s mom, Sarudzai Filipi, who was following the process from Portugal where she is based, says she is happy with how much her son has matured.
“When someone decides to pay lobola it shows that he’s matured and responsible.
“I’m happy that my son is now married to the woman whom we all love and know that she is God-fearing and is good for him.
“We welcome her into our family and we love and appreciate her.
“As a mother, I want to wish them well as they begin their new journey,” she said.
Warriors manager, Wellington Mpandare, and Dynamos vice-captain, Godknows Murwira, was part of Munetsi’s entourage.
