Magistrate Blocks Marry Mubaiwa's Bid To Move Attempted Murder Trial To SA

Magistrate Blocks Marry Mubaiwa's Bid To Move Attempted Murder Trial To SA

Harare magistrate Feresi Chakanyuka has rejected a bid by Marry Mubaiwa to have her trial moved to South Africa where she allegedly attempted to murder her ex-husband and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Marry had challenged Zimbabwean courts’ jurisdiction to try her over an offence that allegedly took place in a South African hospital.

However, in her ruling, Chakanyuka said that there was no need to transfer the trial to South Africa as both parties in the matter are based in Zimbabwe. Said Chakanyuka:

The parties involved are both Zimbabweans, hence the country has the right to deal with the matter as there will be no breach of international law.

There is no danger of offending the South African authorities since there was no danger to them involving this crime.

The magistrate also noted that there was no evidence South African authorities had taken interest and were investigating the matter.

Chakanyuka then set the trial for 29 September this year.

Well ukufunda akhupeli. All along I understood law to say a crime committed outside Zimbabwe may not be tried in Zimbabwe with the exception of the crime of "theft" which has elements of being a continuos crime.

If Zimbabwe is not careful, South Africa may refuse to release key witnesses who are nurses in South Africa.

[ IF CONVICTED SHE MAY BE LOCKED UP FOR UPTO 5 YEARS ].

[ KUTONGA KUNODA MAJANA. CHIPAIWO ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA ].

[ VOTE CCC FOR REAL CHANGE ].

Yours faithfully

Will the South African witnesses take the stand in Harare?

What happened to the modus operandi that a case is tried in the jurisdiction the crime was perpetrated?
