"The inheritance laws of Zimbabwe were reviewed in 1997 and resulted in the promulgation of the Administration of Estates Amendment Act. The Act makes the surviving spouse and children the primary beneficiaries of the deceased’s estate as opposed to the eldest son. In polygamous marriages the senior wife receives two-thirds of the first third of the estate’s liquidated assets, as she is regarded as the biggest contributor to the estate. The remaining wives share equally in the remainder of the first third of the estate. The remaining two thirds of the estate is shared amongst the children of the various marriages.

"For example, in polygamous marriages, the law states that, if possible, each wife should become the owner of the home in which she is living. If a number of wives are sharing a home, that arrangement should continue after their spouse’s death, if possible. The first wife receives two-thirds of the first third of the estate’s liquid assets, for she is presumed to have made the biggest contribution to the estate. The remaining wives share equally the remainder of the first third of the estate, and the children of the various marriages share the remaining two-thirds" (168)

"In customary marriages, a woman has a life interest in the matrimonial home, which has to be shared among wives in case of polygamous marriages... In polygamous marriages, each wife keeps the home she was living in at the time of the husband's death, with its household contents. The wives share one-third of the remaining property, with the senior wife getting the largest share and all the children sharing the remaining two-thirds. In cases where the senior wife's house is less valuable than the others or where the remaining estate is too small to share, the children risk ending up with nothing" (para 1-5)
