Marry Chiwenga being brought to court

Estranged wife to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga was on Monday brought to court in an ambulance and stretcher in a manner that left many people touched.

Marry Chiwenga, nee Mubaiwa was brought to court in the ambulance after earlier failing to appear in court.

A warrant of arrest was subsequently issued.

Mubaiwa is accused of attempting to kill VP Constantino Chiwenga when he was admitted in hospital in South Africa and externalising foreign currency. In the morning session, Ms Mtetwa explained her client’s absence: “She is not feeling well and she is at her house. She cannot come to court.”

The State, led by Mrs Netsai Mushayabasa, applied for the warrant of arrest.

Ms Mtetwa then applied to be allowed to hire an ambulance to ferry Mubaiwa to court and returned with her in an ambulance at around 2pm.

Mubaiwa was then placed in a wheelchair and taken into the courtroom with two paramedics assisting her. Ms Mtetwa applied for the cancellation of the warrant of arrest, which Mrs Mushayabasa did not oppose on the grounds of Mubaiwa’s ill-health.

Mrs Mushayabasa then suggested that the matter involving attempted murder and money laundering be postponed to 28 January next year since investigations were still underway.

The warrant of arrest was cancelled following her emotional appearance in court in a hospital bed.

The court indicating that it was ready for trial on another charge assault charges against her.

Mubaiwa’s lawyer, Ms Beatrice Mtetwa however, indicated that they were not ready to proceed with the trial because of her ill health.

Ms Mtetwa told the court that Mubaiwa is set to travel outside the country for medical attention and applied that the matter set for January 28 to enable her time to recover and seek medical attention.

Mubaiwa appeared before magistrate Mr Trynos Utahwashe.
