Harare-Zimbabwe Republic Police detectives are set to travel to South Africa to probe claims made by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga that his embattled wife Marry attempted to murder him while on his sick bed in the neighbouring country last year.
Marry was arrested in December last on allegations of attempting to murder the VP while he was receiving treatment at a private hospital in South Africa.
This came out the High Court for her bail variation hearing on Thursday, Prosecutor Sharon Fero told Justice Pisirai Kwenda that investigators were set to travel to South Africa soon.
“Evidence shows that the police are yet to travel to South Africa but they have been given authority to travel. However, I am not in position to give clearer information,” Fero said.
Marry’s lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa said the court should not treat the State with ‘kid gloves’ for failing to do its work properly by failing to conclude investigations.
“The State has submitted that the police are yet to conduct investigations yet they should investigate to arrest. It (State) is conducting its case back to front and the accused should not be punished for that,” she said.
Marry was arrested in December last on allegations of attempting to murder the VP while he was receiving treatment at a private hospital in South Africa. She is also facing charges of money laundering, externalization and fraud and is out on bail
