HARARE| Top gospel musician Sabastian Magacha has reportedly ended his marriage to his wife of five years Nomsa Ndikumwe Magacha.

Magacha is now reported to be in the process of filing divorce papers with the High Court.

The singer confirmed the sad end of his marriage but declined to disclose reasons thereof.

“Yes Nomsa and I are no longer together but my management and I have written a statement and that is how best I can respond to the issue that you’re talking about,’ said Magacha.

Magacha’s soon to be ex wife Nomsa totally declined to comment on the issue.

 However close sources reveal that the pair’s marriage was rocked with allegations of infidelity among other things.

“Saba and wife have been on separation for the past nine months and all this time they have been going to functions together when in actual fact they had already parted ways.

“Nomsa went to Saba’s album launch after he (Magacha) had begged her to come just to protect his image but otherwise their marriage had collapsed a long time ago.

“All that is happening now is just a formality but the honest truth is their marriage ended nine months ago when Nomsa moved out of their matrimonial home.

“From the family meetings that were being done by the Magacha and Ndikumwe families, the issue of infidelity was topical as Nomsa was being accused by Saba to have been involved in an adul_terous affair.

“Saba has evidence of the affair that Nomsa had and the other thing that led to their divorce was that Magacha was not in good books with Nomsa’s sisters they had a lot of confrontations before.

“Their issues could have been resolved if Saba had good relations with his in-laws but it was clear that they didn’t like him,” said the source.

Magacha released an emotional statement concerning the  divorce.

“As a man with strong Christian values, I made all countless attempts to try and keep my family together. What I have realised is that I would be doing not only myself an injustice, but to you all too, by forcibly attempting to portray a public facade of happiness when truly feeling hurt inside.
“I have the utmost respect for her and her family and I pray that this too will be maintained by you all as we go through the final process of our divorce. Be blessed and as always I can never thank you enough for your unwavering support.”
