Chiwenga tells wife you can have cars but not my cash or children


Zimbabwe Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga who is involved in an acrimonious divorce with his common law wife Marry Mubaiwa is reported to have told her that she can have at least three cars, all their kitchen utensils and the bed they used but not his cash or children.

According to the Sunday Times of South Africa, Chiwenga is said to have told her this in papers filed by his lawyers which have so far been kept under wraps.

Chiwenga says some US$245 428 which is in Mubaiwa’s account with FBC Bank belongs to him and was proceeds from his hunting concessions.

He says Mubaiwa can keep a 3,198m² residential stand, stand no 591 Borrowdale Brooke, and three top-of-the-range vehicles – a Land Rover Discovery, a Range Rover Sport and a Ford Ranger – which he says he bought for her.

He also says Mubaiwa acquired two residential properties in Tshwane, South Africa, and three houses in Harare’s Mount Pleasant and Vainona suburbs at an auction by KM Auctions, which is owned by her father, and bought two Land Rover Discovery vehicles in South Africa, without his knowledge or involvement.
