Marry’s freedom bid flops…as dad Mubaiwa offers KM Motors to save her

Marry Chiwenga (nee Mubaiwa)

IN a bid to acquire his daughter Marry ‘s freedom,  businessman Keni Mubaiwa has on Tuesday offered to cede title deeds to his properties along Seke Road as part of security and  bail condition .

The properties dangled  are KM Motors  and KM Auctions.

However, High Court judge Justice Pisirayi Kwenda reserved judgment in her bail application implying that Marry will spend New Year behind bars.

Marry had made a bail appeal in the matter in which she is facing foreign currency externalisation, money laundering and fraud charges.

Her defense counsel Advocate Sylvester Hashiti was challenging a ruling made by the lower court arguing that she was not a flight risk since she was an easily recognizable figure whose probable location , should she flee was not a secret.

Her South African properties and location were known to the State, Hashiti argued.

The State led by  Sharon Fero and Lovett Masuku argues that Marry was facing serious charges that could earn her at least 25 years in jail or be ordered to repay twice the amount she allegedly prejudiced the State.

Justice Kwenda reserved judgment in her bail application.
