Marry Chiwenga Staring At 35 Years In Prison

The estranged husband of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Marry Chiwenga (nee Mubaiwa) faces a lengthy period in jail if convicted on charges of breaching Exchange Control regulations, fraud and money laundering, and murder allegations she is facing.

In opposing bail for Marry, prosecutor Albert Masamha told the court that the offence of fraud attracts up to 35 years, while Money Laundering provides for imprisonment for up to 25 years. He said:

Releasing the applicant on bail is, therefore, likely to jeopardise and erode public confidence in the justice system.

… it is the respondent’s submission that the sentence for attempted murder is also severe in the event the applicant is convicted.

The offence of fraud provides for imprisonment not exceeding 35 years, whilst Section 8 (8) of the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Act, Chapter 9:24 provides for imprisonment not exceeding 25 years.

Marry has been in remand prison ever since she first appeared in court nearly two weeks ago.

On Friday, the High Court postponed her bail application and appeal hearings to Tuesday next week.

She is being represented by Mtetwa & Nyambirai Legal Practitioners.

  1. Oh dear Marry!! Hell hath no fury like an Army General scorned. I think you are toast. Don’t worry, by the time you are released, they would have gone, one way or the other. Then Borrowdale will be all yours.

  2. Sorry but how can we believe this if the very first sentence of the article is wrong. Please read this carefully and tell me if this is quality journalism.
