Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife Marry Mubaiwa has been found guilty on charges of breaching the Marriage Act through misrepresenting to a court that the VP consented to solemnise the couple’s marriage under the Act during the time he was battling for life in an Indian hospital.

Mubaiwa was found guilty of the offence by Harare magistrate Lazini Ncube who said that evidence from witnesses proved that she lied about Chiwenga’s consent to legalise their marriage.

During trial, prosecutors alleged the embattled former model fraudulently tried to procure registration or upgrade of her marriage to Chiwenga from an unregistered union to a marriage under the Marriage Act [Chapter 5:11] by misrepresenting to the marriage officer that her husband had consented to the registration, well knowing the same to be false.

Mubaiwa faces myriad troubles as she is also undergoing trial for allegedly assaulting her children’s maid.
