Marry Mubaiwa’s attempted murder trial continues Marry Mubaiwa

Prosper Dembedzan Herald Correspondent

Former Health and Child Care Deputy Minister Dr John Mangwiro yesterday told the court that whenever Mubaiwa walked into the room in which Vice President Constantino Chiwenga was admitted in, he would become unconscious even though he was awake before her arrival.

Dr Mangwiro said this while being cross examined by Mubaiwa’s lawyer Ms Beatrice Mtetwa.

Dr Mangwiro said the complainant’s health condition would start deteriorating each time he was brought back to his house.

“Each time we took the complainant out of the country for medication, he would come back home well. But he would start deteriorating when he got to his home. I don’t know what was happening,” he said.

Dr Mangwiro said Mubaiwa was so powerful that she would kick everyone out of the hospital room.

At one point, she refused to take the complainant to hospital, instead, opting to take him to a hotel saying she wanted to rest.

“The accused once changed the entourage which was taking the complainant to hospital and opted for a hotel. I told her it was dangerous and she said the complainant wanted to rest,” said Dr Mangwiro.

He said Mubaiwa changed the course of things and was powerful.

Ms Mtetwa said if her client haboured any intentions of killing the complainant, she had all the time in all the countries were he was admitted.

Dr Mangwiro responded saying Mubaiwa would make sure that they would all be out of the room when she visited.

He said he once requested for a CCTV system to be installed in the room where Vice President Chiwenga was so that they would ascertain what was happening.

He said he would give daily updates to President Mnangagwa of any incident that would have transpired.

Mubaiwa is facing charges of attempting to kill her ex-husband Vice President Chiwenga by unplugging his life support system in a South African hospital.
