MARRY Mubaiwa, estranged wife to Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, was Saturday remanded in custody by a Harare Magistrate after she was denied bail on fresh charges of assaulting a family maid last week.
Marry is facing charges of assaulting Delight Munyoro, who had accompanied the feuding couple’s minor children to Hellenic School in Borrowdale, Harare last Tuesday.
Denying her bail, the magistrate said Marry had a “propensity to commit crimes of violence”.
In December last year, Marry was arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) officers on charges of attempting to murder her husband while he was battling for life at a private hospital in South Africa. She spent three weeks in remand prison.
She was also charged with externalisation, money laundering and fraud before being granted bail last month.
On her release from remand prison, Marry found herself locked out of the couple’s matrimonial home in Borrowdale Brooke, Harare and was denied access to the pair’s minor children, vehicles and personal belongings.
She was forced to return to her parents’ house while putting up a fight in the courts to be allowed access to a family home, children and assets.
She was granted the order which was however appealed against by VP Chiwenga.
The matter will be heard this coming week.
