A court in Zimbabwe has blocked Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's lavish wedding planned for Saturday, ruling he is already married.

Earlier this week, a high court judge said Locadia Tembo's customary marriage to Mr Tsvangirai was not legal.

But now a magistrate has agreed with her and ordered the wedding, which several heads of state were due to attend, to be put on hold.

Mr Tsvangirai's lawyers are seeking an urgent order to proceed with the event.

Also on Friday, they defeated another legal attempt to prevent the wedding - by Nozipho Shilubane from South Africa, who claims Mr Tsvangirai had promised to marry her.

Some analysts say the court cases bear all the hallmarks of a political dirty tricks campaign to smear the reputation of Mr Tsvangirai ahead of next year's elections, in which he is due to challenge President Robert Mugabe.

But others say he only has himself to blame as he has been involved with a number of women since his wife died in a car crash soon after he became prime minister in 2009.

    Can you imagine the letter to the other heads of state who are certain to have been invited?

    What credibility can you have as the leader of a country if you don't know if you are married or not...?

    LOL! That's actually a fairly serious consideration.

    Shouldn't he have sorted this out before planning a lavish wedding?

    You would have thought it would be at the top of the list wouldn't you?
