ZIMBABWE VICE-PRESIDENT’S WIFE GETS BAIL FOR MURDER TRIAL.
Zimbabwe vice-president’s wife gets bail for murder trial.
09 January 2020 | 09:42

The wife of Zimbabwe's vice president was granted bail on Monday, after three weeks in jail on charges of fraud, money-laundering and attempted murder of her husband.

The 38 years old Marry Mubaiwa who is the wife of the sixty-three years old Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, was arrested last month on allegations of attempted murder, fraud and contravening the country's exchange control laws, by transferring about $1m abroad.

The High Court in Harare freed her on a 50 000 Zimbabwe dollar bail, and she was ordered to surrender her diplomatic passport.

She also offered title deeds of her father's house as surety.

The businesswoman and former model, who was previously married to a national football player, will report to the police twice weekly.

A trial date has not been set yet, but she is due back in court on January 14th, for a routine pre-trial appearance.
