The family of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife, Marry Mubaiwa Chiwenga, have begged the General for negotiations. This was revealed by Marry’s United States of America based uncle Hannington Mubaiwa via Live Video. Mubaiwa’s appeal came a few hours after Marry was after more than 3 weeks incarceration
Mubaiwa appealed to Chiwenga’s softer side saying that since the couple has 3 children together, they will remain tied no matter what happens with the divorce proceedings. He also called on Chiwenga’s principal, President Emmerson Mnangagwa to intervene in the high profile matter.
