Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s ailing estranged wife Marry Mubaiwa says it is difficult for her to recover while being denied access to see her children by the powerful former army general.

Marry Mubaiwa has advised her estranged husband, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga that "power is not permanent" as she revealed that she has been denied access to see her children for the past 17 months.
In March 2021 Marry Mubaiwa accused her estranged husband Vice President Constantino Chiwenga of sending the military to raze down her office wall in Highlands in Harare. Mubaiwa with her children (right bottom) and VP Chiwenga seen also with the children (top right). 

Mubaiwa was barred by the High Court from having access to the couple’s three minor children in February last year as the couple is going through a messy divorce while being embroiled in several bitter legal battles which are yet to be settled.

She is also facing, charges of attempting to murder her husband, fraud, and money laundering.

As if that is not enough, she was expected to stand trial but she is suffering severe lymphoedema and spontaneous formation of abscesses whose origins have not been determined.

She told the court that she may end up having one of her arms amputated after failing to get the treatment she needs outside the country.

On Tuesday, she said she could not be well without access to the couple’s three children.

“A good afternoon depending on your current location. How can I ever get better without having my children in my CUSTODY, I have not seen or spoken to my children for 2 years now, they were stolen from me from my matrimonial home under instructions from my husband,” she said.

The former model is out of custody on bail over allegations raised by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) that she unlawfully transferred US$919,000 to South Africa under the guise of importing goods, between October 2018 and May 2019.

She is also accused of fraudulently obtaining a marriage certificate without Chiwenga’s consent earlier that year when Chiwenga was critically ill and additional charges of attempting to kill the VP.

Last week, Mubaiwa claimed that she sought help from President Emmerson Mnangagwa but he declined to help, claiming that his deputy did not take in any instructions from him when it comes to her treatment.

“I have approached the current president many times, he has done nothing and has completely ignored me, citing reasons that his subordinate does not take instructions from him, who is the boss now???” she said. Nehanda Radio
