Chiwenga Marries Zimbabwean Army Colonel After Divorcing Mary Mubaiwa

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has announced that his deputy, Retired General Constantino Chiwenga, has tied the knot with a woman who is in the country’s security sector.

In a statement, Cabinet Secretary Misheck Sibanda said Chiwenga tied the knot with Colonel Miniyothabo Baloyi.

Sibanda said, “Col. Baloyi is a serving officer in the Zimbabwe National Army, ZNA. The President, the First Lady Amai Auxilia Mnangagwa (Dr), and the First Family wish the couple a lifelong partnership full of love and affection.”

No further details were given about the ceremony in which the two tied the knot.

Chiwenga has been involved in a bitter divorce wrangle with his former wife, Mary Mubaiwa, who was accused of attempting to forge a marriage certificate while Chiwenga was hospitalized in South Africa.

A Zimbabwean court terminated their marriage recently. She was convicted of violating the Marriages Act.
