Beatrice Mtetwa Tells State To Stop Abusing Marry Chiwenga

Prominent lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa has told the State to stop abusing her client Marry Chiwenga the estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Mtetwa argued in court after the State had opposed her application for postponement of trial in a case Marry is accused of assaulting her domestic worker.

Marry and her lawyers had applied for the postponement of the trial on the basis that she was undergoing a complex blood transfusion process and was, therefore, not fit to stand trial at the moment.

Prosecutor Charles Muchemwa opposed the application saying the State witnesses had been warned to appear in court yesterday and a move to postpone the matter would prejudice them.

Mtetwa told the court that the State was abusing Marry Chiwenga, saying the fact that a mere assault case was transferred to the regional court meant the case was not treated like other assault cases which are being heard at lower courts.

Harare regional magistrate Marehwanazvo Gofa, who is presiding over the case, postponed the matter to May 10.

Gofa said there was no dispute on the sickness of the accused and for her to receive a fair trial, she should be given a chance to heal.

Marry recently posted on social media platforms claiming that her husband the VP was abusing her using state machinery as a way to force her out of their marriage.

The former army boss is allegedly fed up with the former model whom he accuses of trying to kill him last year.
