Responses To Detention Of Visibly Unwell Marry Mubaiwa-Chiwenga

On Tuesday, Marry Mubaiwa-Chiwenga, the estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga was sent to remand prison for 10 days pending mental examination by state doctors.

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 pending medical examination will be to determine whether she is fit to stand trial or not. A doctor who examined her physical health fitness said she was fit to stand trial while the other doctor who examined her mental health said she was not fit to stand trial.

Local medical doctor, Norman Matara said that for the former model to stand trial, both tests must confirm that she is fit. He said:

To be certified fit for trial, BOTH should be normal. If a person fails one or both aspects then the person is NOT fit for trial.

Speaking on the development, @maniearty said it was absurd that a doctor found Marry fit, physically to stand trial when it is visible that she is not well. Said @maniearty:

What is even more ridiculous is that the physical dr said she was fit and the psych said no. We all can see she’s not physically healthy, she very very ill and needs medical attention. Shame on @edmnangagwa and his loose VP Chiwenga. Our courts are now beyond redemption.

Wayne Jika @zvatakada echoed @maniearty’s sentiments:

She is clearly not fit for trial. She needs treatment first how can you take someone to court with such wounds.

Marry is embroiled in a nasty divorce with the Chiwenga who is accusing her of trying to kill him.

Marry accuses the former army boss of abusing state institutions including courts and the security sector to inflict pain on her.
