‘Which cables were removed?’- Mubaiwa posts rare picture of Chiwenga in hospital

Marry Mubaiwa has allegedly tweeted a picture of her estranged husband Vice President Constantino Chiwenga in a hospital bed in South Africa, asking “which cables were removed from this guy?” as she denied accusations that she tried to kill the former general.
Mubaiwa has been accused of attempting to kill her estranged husband by disconnecting his life support system while he was undergoing treatment in a South African hospital in 2019.
She was arrested over allegations of illegally transferring almost US$1 million overseas to purchase luxury cars and property, and faces additional charges of attempted murder.
On Thursday, the former model tweeted a previously unpublished picture of Chiwenga in a hospital bed in South Africa asking: “Which cables were removed from this guy?”
She simply said “the truth must come out”.
“Which cables were removed from this guy? That is when he was in South Africa in 2019. Make your own analysis, the truth must come out,” she said.
Allegations are that, in July 2019, Marry went to the private hospital in Pretoria where he was being treated and told staff to leave her alone with him before disconnecting vital equipment, police allege.
Police further state that when security personnel and medical staff intervened, she left the hospital.
Chiwenga was later treated in China and their marriage was reported to have collapsed shortly after.
The Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission went on to bring the fraud and money laundering charges against Mubaiwa. She is currently out of custody on bail suffering legal issues and severe diseases, lymphoedema and spontaneous formation of abscesses whose origins have not been determined.
She desperately wants a chance to be treated outside the country but her passport was taken by the court as part of her bail conditions. She is, however, deteriorating such that she recently collapsed at the Harare Magistrates Court.
Mubaiwa told the court last month that she may end up having one of her arms amputated after failing to get the treatment she needed in South Africa. Nehanda Radio
