Marry Mubaiwa has been ordered to surrender her diplomatic passport

A court in Zimbabwean has freed the estranged wife of Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga on $50,000 (£38,000) bail following her arrest last month on charges of attempting to murder him, and of being involved in fraud and money laundering.

Marry Mubaiwa was ordered to surrender her diplomatic passport and the title deed of a property registered in her father’s name, as part of her bail conditions.

She has denied all charges. No date has been set for her trial.

Prosecutors allege she tried to kill Gen Chiwenga while he was receiving medical treatment in South Africa last year for an undisclosed illness.

Gen Chiwenga led the military intervention which forced long-serving ruler Robert Mugabe out of office in 2017.
