Combative Zimbabwe PP Constantino Chiwenga has refused to accept the High Court’s decision to award custody of the couple’s young children to his estranged wife Marry Mubaiwa Chiwenga. The Vice President has wasted no time in fighting back and has since filed an appeal at the Supreme Court challenging the ruling made by High Court judge Christopher Dube-Banda earlier on today.
General Chiwenga’s latest move means that the order for him to transfer custody of the minor children within 24 hours is temporarily suspended until the matter is heard by the Supreme Court.
Chiwenga’s court papers read:
