HARARE – Former top model Marry Mubaiwa will know her fate today on whether or not her trials will kick off as the report that was ordered by the court on her mental wellbeing is set to be presented in court today.
Mubaiwa appeared yesterday before Harare magistrate Taurai Manuwere in the matter she is accused attempting to murder Vice President Chiwenga and was remanded to today because the doctor’s findings will have a bearing on the date that matter will kick off as it is ready for trial.
Harare magistrate Lazini Ncube ordered the former top model to present herself before the clinical director who should appoint a medically qualified person to examine her on the effects of the mind altering drugs she is taking.
This order followed Mabaiwa’s claims that she is not fit to stand trial because of the numerous medication that she is taking even though a doctor’s report was presented before the court stated that she is physically fit to stand trial.
Mubaiwa is alleged to have unlawfully removed the Vice President’s medical Intra Venous Giving Set as well as the Central Venous Catheter which he had inserted as he was battling for his life at a hospital in South Africa causing him to bleed profusely.
It is further alleged that she forced him off the bed, held his hand, and moved him out of the ward before being intercepted by the security personnel she had kicked out of the room prior to her shenanigans.
Marry was intercepted at the exit where the hospital staff was called by security to connect the medical instruments she had unlawfully removed, resuscitating the Vice President but she disappeared from the hospital soon after.
The court heard that the complainant, Vice President Chiwenga, prior to his admission in hospital, had been airlifted to South Africa for emergency medical attention on June 22 but upon arrival, his estranged wife had detained him at a top hotel in Pretoria denying him medical attention prompting the security team to force their way into the hotel on June 24 and took him to hospital.
Upon his admission Chiwenga had the two medical instruments inserted and was placed under 24-hour monitoring by the doctors and his security personnel as he was helpless, the court heard.
Mubaiwa is also facing fraud, money laundering and assault charges.
