A video has surfaced online showing male prisoners shouting from the prison van saying they have VP Chiwenga’s ex Marry wife Marry Mubaiwa (nee) in their midst.
“Tinavo muno chimhamha, chimhamha chiri muno!” (We have her here, she’s here) they can be heard shouting from the barred van windows.
Esteemed journalist Violet Gonda shared the video on Twitter highlighting the indignity and harassment female prisoners go through as they are forced to share transportation with their male counterparts.
The former second lady is being accused of fraud, externalizing foreign currency, money laundering and attempting to murder VP Chiwenga.
Marry was remanded in custody up to the 30th of December yesterday (Monday) after the court denied her bail. The state argued that she was a flight risk and she could attempt to murder VP Chiwenga again if she was released on bail.
