Marry Mubaiwa Chiwenga will have to spend a further two weeks in Remand Prison after she was further remanded to the 14th of January 2020. However, she still has hope of regaining her freedom soon as her High Court bail hearing is set to be heard this Tuesday.
Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife Marry Mubaiwa Chiwenga showed up at the Harare Magistrates’ Court looking haggard today. The former model was at the courts for a routine remand after she was denied bail by the same court two weeks ago. The Vice President’s estranged wife has since appealed for bail twice at the High Court, but unfortunately for her, her bail hearings have been postponed twice.
Marry’s hands were visibly bandaged following reports that she was critically ill on Sunday morning. According to sources at the prisons, Mary has woken up with swollen hands and seemed unable to get up. Marry’s deterioration in health comes at a time when Vice President Chiwenga has flown off to China for a medical review. Interestingly, however, she is spotting a new hairstyle.
Marry is going through a nasty divorce from the Vice President which has resulted in stunning allegations of drug abuse and addiction being made against the model as Chiwenga battles to secure custody of the couple’s 3 minor children. Marry was arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) allegedly at the orders of Chiwenga.
The embattled former model is facing numerous allegations which include, six counts of illegally externalizing funds well worth over one million United States Dollars, five for money laundering and one for fraud where she allegedly forged a marriage certificate. The charges allege that she illegally solemnized a secret marriage presided over by Acting Chief Magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi without Chiwenga’s consent. She is also facing charges of attempting to kill the Vice President when he was critically ill in South Africa.
