Mary Chiwenge (nee Mubaiwa) the estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has been denied bail. Mary who is facing a myriad of charges which include attempted murder of the Vice President has been remanded in custody to February 20, 2020. She was advised to apply for bail at the High Court.
Mary was arrested on Saturday night by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) allegedly at the orders of her husband.
The arrest came after an explosive family meeting to discuss the collapse of the couple’s marriage was held on Friday. A feisty Mary is alleged to have become indiscrete during the meeting and made barbed remarks about her husband’s alleged sexual inadequacies.
Mary is also battling another lawsuit from her ex-husband and former Warriors star Shingi Kaondera. Kaondera has dragged Mary to the High Court demanding a massive US$700 000 alleging that she forged the divorce papers which allowed her to leave him and to get married to Chiwenga back in 2011.
Mary’s camp is suspicious that the lawsuit is being bankrolled by Chiwenga. The reason being that if Mary’s divorce is ruled fraudulent, it would deem her marriage to the former army General legally void.
