VP Chiwenga’s ex-wife Mary is reported not to be in a good shape by her family after spending 23 days behind bars in less than favourable conditions.
Her father Kenias Mubaiwa told ZTN this morning that their focus is now on getting Marry medical care. “It’s good that she was granted bail but she is not in good shape. What we want to do now is get her the best medical care possible,” he said.

Marry was granted bail pending trial. Her attorney Advocate Sylvester Hashiti, said.
“The High Court has accepted our request for bail for our client on allegations that she wanted to kill the country’s vice president. On this charge, she was granted 10,000 Zimbabwe dollars, ordered to surrender her diplomatic passport and title deeds and reside at an address to be given to the court.
“On charges of externalizing money she was granted 50,000 RTGS bail. She was ordered to surrender her diplomatic passport and title deeds to her Highlands home as surety.
She is also required to report once a fortnight at Borrowdale Police Station, not to interfere with State witnesses and to reside at her Borrowdale Brooke mansion until the matter is finalised.
