Marital Issues

In 2018, Boka claimed adultery damages from a woman named Lorrain Chitereka who is said to have taken her husband Noah Jabulani Mutambanengwe.

Through her lawyers Devittie Rudolph and Timba Legal Practitioners, Rudo filed a letter of final demand to her husband and lover.

Part of the letter read:

“It has come to our client’s knowledge that you are currently engaged in an adulterous affair with Noah even with the knowledge of the marriage that subsists between him and our client We are further informed that such an affair resulted in our client’s husband moving out of the matrimonial home around August 2017 on the pretext of needing space to deal with the emotional loss of having his children from his prior marriage relocate to America without his consent and also purportedly to start business when in fact he was residing with you.”

The two lovers were served with the letter and seem to have ignored to respond which led to the matter going to High Court.[2]

Business Career

Rudo Boka took over the running of her father’s business at the age of 21 after her father died in 1999. In an interview she said because of her late father’s debts, banks were unwilling to offer her loans.
