Kenny Mubaiwa, the father to Marry Chiwenga, the estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, confirmed that Hannington is his brother who left Zimbabwe for the United States of America 35 years ago.
In a video circulating on social media, Hannington accuses Chiwenga of disrespecting the Mubaiwa family by causing Marry’s arrest. He says in the video:
It is needless to say that we are very disturbed by the manner our daughter is being handled.
The primary factor, in this case, is that, behind everything that is happening is a family matter.
We know that when a family has a disagreement, the husband who is not happy with his wife should approach the parent of his wife and discuss the way forward.
This has not been done and it shows how Chiwenga despises and condescends the Mubaiwa family.
I am sure he should have thought about this. I am sure he considered it and found it unnecessary because we do not have power, or so he perceives.
Chiwenga accuses his estranged wife of trying to kill him in July when he was admitted at a South African hospital.
He was eventually airlifted to China where he spent several months before his return to Zimbabwe a few weeks ago.
