Chiwenga, Marry Divorce: VP To Testify In-Camera
Harare magistrate Mr Lazini Ncube has today upheld the State’s application to have Vice President Constantino Chiwenga testify in-camera during the ongoing trial of his estranged wife Marry Mubaiwa on charges of violating the Marriages Act.
The State yesterday made an application to bar the public from hearing the Vice President’s testimony in order to protect his office.
Mubaiwa, through her lawyers, had opposed the State’s application arguing that it violated her right to a fair public hearing.
The former model is accused of using forged documents in a bid to upgrade her marriage to the former Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander.
Chiwenga was supposed to testify at the trial on Wednesday but failed to do so after the state applied for the testimony to be held in-camera.
