Marry caught leaving prison


. . . hugs fellow inmates

Mathew Masinge

Marry Mubaiwa, who was granted ZWL$50 000 bail by the High Court yesterday, was captured by H-Metro bidding farewell to inmates at Chikurubi Female Prison in Harare.

So relieved was the estranged Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s wife that she took time to hug fellow inmates before her release.

And it was evident that she had learnt a lot behind bars as she showed signs of getting along with fellow female prisoners.

Marry who made her initial appearance on the 16th of December last year had spent three weeks behind bars.

She is facing attempted murder charges coupled with externalisation of foreign currency, money laundering and fraud.

Her reprieve will include her surrendering her diplomatic passport and title deeds to her Highlands apartment.

She has also been asked to report to police fortnightly.
