By Farai D Hove | Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s new wife, Col Miniothabo Baloyi is already plotting an escape from the January beast, Zim community whispers have suggested following a photograph of her reclining down with a suggestive sad face.
VP Chiwenga married his latest wife, his 4th in a row since independence, at a time when he is subjecting the mother of his other three children, Marry Mubaiwa, to public violence, which includes being barred from getting medical attention for her gruesome wounds that emerged from the June 2018 White City stadium bombing.
VP Chiwenga’s new wife is still to comment on allegations that she is thinking of escaping days after tying the knot: “Kumbunyikidzwa uko, akuna Mukadzi kwaye angada murume waaari kuona achishunhurudza mumwe Mukadzi zvakadaro Mary Mubayiwa. She’s thinking about the future ahead,” a topic raged on overnight Friday suggesting the general’s new wife is planning an escape.
The title is translated to: “She is being forced. There is no woman who will accept seeing another being subjected to the violence meted out against Marry Mubaiwa. She is thinking about the future ahead (an escape).
A snap survey over the VP’s exclusive interviews with ZimEye suggested that most women do not find the man to be husband material. Chiwenga has a history for the most brutal violence and he is also accused of grinding to dust the body of his love rival of many years, Gen Solomon Mujuru in 2011. Just in January 2019 when confronted by ZimEye after the gunning down of 17 people and raping of over 50 women, Chiwenga told this news network to ‘go report to the police if you have been shot at.’
