The estranged wife of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Marry Chiwenga nee Mubaiwa said the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) should arrest her husband for money laundering if indeed such was an offence was committed.
In her bail application at the High Court through her lawyers from Mtetwa & Nyambirai Legal Practitioners, Marry claimed that the money she is alleged to have externalised to China belonged to the Vice President. She said:
“On the charge of externalising money to China, the State has only the evidence of one witness that the appellant will challenge at trial.
“She will state that the witness would not have any basis to assume or allege that the money was moved illegally nor is the witness telling the truth.
“The money does not belong to the appellant (Marry), and in fact was money belonging to her husband, who should be the person in the dock, assuming an offence was committed.”
The 38-year-old former model has also been accused of buying two houses and three cars in South Africa, using the externalised funds.
She approached the High Court on Wednesday after deputy chief magistrate Chrispen Mberewere denied her bail on Monday.
