Marry Chiwenga Sent To Remand Prison Despite Her Doctor’s Disapproval!

This comes after Harare magistrate Lazini Ncube granted an application by the state led by Prosecutor Michael Reza, who urged the court to send her to jail so that she can be medically monitored.

The estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Marry Mubaiwa-Chiwenga will spend the next 10 days in remand prison pending mental examination by state doctors.

Marry, through her lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa, has been challenging the commencement of her trial in a case she is accused of assault and, another of fraud and forgery.

She was arguing in court that she was physically and mentally unwell to face trial. Two medical practitioners gave conflicting explanations on Marry’s health status, prompting Reza to make an application for her to be medically examined by two Government doctors on whether she is fit to stand trial or not.

The head of the psychiatric department at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, Dr Fungisai Mazhandu, told the court that Mubaiwa was suffering from depression and anxiety and could therefore not fully follow and participate in court proceedings.

However, Dr Charles Nyamukachi, head physician at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, told the court that he examined Marry on 4 November and noted that she was fully alert and her level of concentration was normal.
