Mary Chiwenga the wife of Zimbabwean Vice President Constantino Chiwenga (63) was arrested on Saturday and set to appear in court on fraud, violating exchange control regulations and money laundering charges, according to reports coming out of Zimbabwe.
The 36 years old was arrested by Zimbabwean Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) and will appear in court today for the first time.
According to other reports coming out of Zimbabwe it is said that the husband, Chiwenga is behind the arrest after it was also alleged that the couple is current going through a sour divorce where the wife is accused of being driven by money and material things.
This surfaced during the time when Chiwenga was sick and hospitalised and the Mary allegedly went on to demand that Chiwenga drafts a will. Which made him angry saying that she was not interested in his wellbeing instead only worried about herself only.
Allegations of infidelity also resurfaced against the 36 years old former model, to which she denied.
The couple’s three children from this marriage are currently in the 63 years olds custody.
