Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife, Marry Chiwenga, says things are not looking good for her following her hospitalisation last week after her health continued to deteriorate.
The former top model claims she has not received financial assistance from her former husband or from President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government.

Marry (40) is hospitalised at a Harare private hospital where she continues to battle lymphedema, which has resulted in her sustaining swollen legs and hands.
Speaking to NewsDay on Tuesday, Marry said her major concern was her financial incapacitation and failure to get access to her three children. She said:
Things are not looking good for me, I am really sick. I have been in and out of the hospital in the last couple of months and have been admitted for close to two weeks now.
I have asked and asked and even asked President Emmerson Mnangagwa for financial assistance, but nothing has come my way.
Despite her condition, Marry has been confined to Zimbabwe where she is failing to acquire adequate medical care since the courts have denied her access to her passport.
Meanwhile, Chiwenga, who is sick and requires constant medical attention, has the privilege of flying to China periodically.
Marry is embroiled in a nasty divorce with the former military commander whom she married under customary law in July 2011 and sired three children together.
Chiwenga filed for divorce after recovering from a life-threatening illness in 2019.
Marry is also facing charges of fraud, money laundering and attempted murder of her estranged husband.
She, however, denies the charges and, instead, accuses Chiwenga of approaching the court with dirty hands and fabricating the allegations in order to gain an upper hand in their pending divorce case.
