The State is opposed to the granting of bail to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife, Marry Chiwenga, for fear that she will finish off the former Army General after she allegedly attempted to take his life while he was bedridden in South Africa.
While making his submissions in the Harare Magistrates’ Court on Monday, where Marry was charged with attempted murder, prosecutor Michael Reza said:
The State believes that the accused person if admitted to bail will commit an offence. She has been placed on remand on a charge of attempted murder, meaning her mission in South Africa was not successful.

She did not succeed in killing the vice president in South Africa, meaning she has unfinished business with the vice president.
If released on bail she will go all out to ensure the aborted mission is completed.
Marry appeared at the Harare regional court on Monday morning where she was formally placed on remand on the charge of attempting to kill her husband while he was gravely ill at a South African hospital in July.
The former model was initially charged with the externalization of US$1 million, fraudulently seeking to solemnise her marriage with neither Chiwenga’s knowledge nor consent and money laundering.
