The latest developments in Mary Chiwenga’s life prove that the second lady has always been power-hungry and deceitful being married to three powerful men.
Former warriors star Shingi Kawondera has opened up and narrated how many had duped him of the business he had heavily invested in, Kawondera went on to reveal how Mary abducted the couple’s only child while plying his trade in Cyprus.
In a heartrending interview, Kawondera revealed that he was Mary’s second husband. Her first marriage to businessman Terry Mandizha collapsed after the couple were blessed with a baby girl. Speaking to online publication, Zim Morning Post, Kaondera said,
Wangu, when I met her (Marry) she was a struggling model. Of course, she came from a well up family but I was on fire, ndaipisa wangu and I invested in (a) business that I thought was ours.
I poured in money for her to start a business, we had a vision of Lachelle Company where we wanted to do boutiques and travel services and she took over because I was in Cyprus. She is a good woman but her rich background pushes her to maintain the status and she can do anything.
Kaondera claimed that he invested a massive US$80 000 in the Lachelle Company which he later lost after the former model dumped him in order to get married to (then) General Constantino Chiwenga. In a separate lawsuit, Kaondera alleges that Mary forged his signature on the divorce papers so that she could get married to the General. He is claiming a massive US$700 000 in damages.
Kaondera also alleges that Mary ‘abducted’ the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Destiny, and falsified the baby’s birth certificate. She allegedly changed the child’s surname from Kaondera to Mubaiwa after conniving with corrupt officials at the Registrar-General’s office. Kaondera has not seen the child since then. Destiny is now 10-years-old.
Wangu (my brother), my daughter I last saw him her when she was two years old and Marry went on to amend my daughter’s birth certificate, she liaised with Registrar General Office and my daughter ’s last name was changed from Kawondera to Mubaiwa, her maiden surname and that is not fair, but well Mwari ndewemuhu wese haamwire kuDreams, I wish her well though.
Ironically, even though Kaondera is suing Mary for forging the divorce papers, he insists that Vice President Chiwenga’s hands are clean in the whole debacle.
It seems like poetic justice may have finally caught up with the former model and estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga. After a seemingly blissful 8 years of marriage, Mary seems to have fallen out of Chiwenga’s good graces and the two are currently embroiled in a tumultuous divorce. However, Mary appears to be bearing the brunt of the fight as her liberty is currently in jeopardy.
Zim Morning Post had a series of interviews with insiders in Chiwenga family and established that Marry was never a darling of the family from the onset, and the family fed poisonous information to Chiwenga.
“Chiwenga’s sisters did not like Marry from the start and the situation was worse when Marry blocked them from accompanying Chiwenga to India for treatment.
“President Mnangagwa was even told about the fall out and he counselled her.
“Imagine his sisters had to sleep at a hotel when they came for inauguration, “explained our source.
“At a family meeting last week, Marry made things worse for herself after she hit back at the General defending herself,” added our source.
Mary is presently incarcerated at the women’s section of Chikurubi Prison after she was denied bail yesterday. She is facing a plethora of charges which include the attempted murder of her estranged husband, illegally solemnizing a secret marriage presided over by Acting Chief Magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi without Chiwenga’s knowledge and consent.
