The Mubaiwa family has implored President Emmerson Mnangagwa to consider putting Marry Chiwenga (nee Mubaiwa), the wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, under house arrest to protect her dignity.
This was revealed by Marry’s uncle, Harrington Mubaiwa while speaking to NewZimbabwe.com on Sunday. He said:
Coming from a higher authority like that, there is a need to honour her. She is the wife of the Vice President, she needs to be respected and honoured regardless of anything else around.
The best they can do is for her to be put under house arrest for now. There is nowhere she can go but there is a need for a level of dignity for her.
Marry was arrested on December 14 and remanded in custody last week, facing charges of attempting to kill VP Chiwenga, money laundering and fraud.
She is currently being held at Harare’s notorious Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison.
