Speaking to a local daily on Sunday Marry Chiwenga said she does not know the woman who claimed to be her husband Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s niece who got a prophecy from South Africa-based prophet Alph Lukau, claiming that the former General was a victim of witchcraft.
Marry said they did not even know the woman and that they did not have relatives in South Africa. She said she did not recognise it as a prophecy since the woman had said the name Chiwenga already. Said Marry:
"No, she’s not a relative, I do not know her and the VP does not know her, and to be honest I didn’t see any prophecy there because the woman had said the name. Whatever he said about witchcraft I don’t know, I know what the doctors told us."
She also revealed that the explosion that rocked a Zanu PF rally at White City Stadium in Bulawayo was the sole reason her hands are bandaged. She said they were doing fine and are not in critical condition as claimed on social media.
“Why are people concerned about my sickness in that way? They should instead be praying for me. Was I not part of the bomb blast in Bulawayo where some people even lost their lives? People should be asking how their families are carrying on,” she told the Daily News on Sunday.
“I have these bandages on but my hands are no longer swollen, the bandages are to cover the wounds from infection. Yes, my hands and legs were affected during that bomb blast, but I am recovering well. I feel fine.
"I even go to work and I even drive, I have carried on living as I used to. But you can’t expect the effects to just disappear. “I read somewhere where they were saying the Health minister (deputy minister John Mangwiro) was babysitting us. No, we do not need anyone to take care of us. He (Chiwenga) is taking care of me and I am taking care of him,” she said of her husband."
