The army chief moved in with former supermodel Mary Mubaiwa, the ex-wife of former national soccer team striker Shingi Kawondera, late last year after his turbulent marriage to Jocelyn Mauchaza Chiwenga fell apart.Court papers filed by Harare businesswoman Chiwenga show she is very bitter at losing her husband to Mubaiwa.

Jocelyn, who married Chiwenga in November 1998, says by purporting to marry the army chief while he was still married to her, Mubaiwa had “greatly disrespected and hurt her“.

The defendant [Mubaiwa] has in full knowledge of the plaintiff’s [Jocelyn’s] marriage to Constantine Guveya Chiwenga commenced cohabitating with Constantine Guveya Chiwenga and entered into an adulterous relationship with him – reads her summons and declaration filed in the high court in Harare.

The controversial businesswoman claims that Mubaiwa’s actions have caused her to suffer the loss of comfort of her defence forces spouse.

The gross impudence and insult to the plaintiff caused by the public and open conduct of the defendant in purporting to have married Constantine Guveya Chiwenga having aggravated the damages sustained by plaintiff – the court papers state.

Of the $40-million, Jocelyn is claiming $20-million for insult while the other $20-million is for loss of consortium, which refers to the deprivation of benefits of a relationship.
