Top lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa who last month was barred from representing journalist Hopewell Chinono and threatened with being deregistered appeared at the Harare Magistrates Court on Monday for troubled former wife to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Marry Mubaiwa.
Mtetwa who was not troubled by the courts told the court that Mubaiwa is currently very sick and undergoing a life saving treatment and could not make it to court.
According to Mtetwa, Mubaiwa was walking around with a catheter to drain some fluids from her swelling hands while in the process of Hong through therapy.
“The accused has not fully done her treatment and she is walking around with a catheter draining stuff from her hand,” she said.
Her sickness is alleged to have resulted from the injuries she sustained in the White City bombing in Bulawayo on the 23 July in 2018.
The case in which Mubaiwa is accused of assaulting her maid was postponed to the 30th of November.
She was also remanded to 30 November in another case in which she is being charged of having attempted murdering Chiwenga at a South African hospital.
