After months of speculation and rumours it has been revealed that Pokello and husband Elikem are divorcing. The couple who met and fell in love on Big Brother Africa are set to nullify their marriage. It’s been reported that Elikem filed for divorce. On Tuesday 11 September, the Ghanaian designer and tailor through his lawyers, Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers, petitioned the High Court, to end his marriage of three years to Pokello.
The files read as follows:
“The plaintiff (Elikem Mourdzie) and defendant (Pokello Nare) have not stayed together as husband and wife for the past one year since September 2017 and such is regarded by plaintiff to be incompatible with the continuation of a normal marriage relationship.
As a result of the above, the plaintiff has lost love and affection to the extent that there are no prospects for reconciliation due to the irretrievable differences between the parties”
Elikem is however not requesting custody of their son. Instead he has requested for ‘access on agreed holidays and or whenever the plaintiff visits Zimbabwe.’ It’s also been stated that Elikem is willing to pay child maintance of $500 per month.
