I shall not speak — Justice Hungwe

35
1894

High Court judge Justice Charles Hungwe, who has been caught in a storm following the death of a Bindura woman, alleged by some sections of the media to be his mistress — Gladys Mangwiro — yesterday said he had chosen to remain mum over the issue, at least for now.

The judge said in an interview with NewsDay yesterday that the explanation he had already given on circumstances surrounding the matter to the deceased’s immediate family members
was enough.

Mangwiro is said to have died from an asthmatic attack allegedly in the company of
the judge at her Bindura home last week.
“With the goings on, I don’t think it (giving further explanation) will help anything and I was hoping that if I kept quiet, the whole thing will die down,” Justice Hungwe said.

just to keep quiet. I have already said it to the relevant people. These are the most important people, the children and the parents. The relevant people know what happened and it’s far from what is being reflected in the papers.”
“I think it’s in my best interest

    • He never denied he had a relationship with the deceased. In fact, it seems the relationship was known and accepted by her family. Even Hungwe’s wife attended the funeral. These are private issues, in as much he is a public figure, and we should not poke our noses into them.

  1. Pls Pls leave Hungwe alone ndiye atanga nazvo here, vamwe kungoti hamusati mabatwa chete, itwo tuvana twamunoramba dziri nhumbu at least he is saying he respects the very people, children and parents as they know zvakaitika. we should feel sorry for him kurasikirwa neshamwari yake murudo. vamwe ipapa how many boyfriends or girlfriends do you have, aah nyaraiwo mhani. VaHungwe we are with you in prayers Mwari vakuregererei munazopfidzawo. ndatenda

    • He is a judge. Do u want kuti munnhu anotongera vanhu rufu aitwe implicate in murder.wat he does in public is for our consumption unless ukuda kukwirwawo uwane kamari. Shame. U r stupid or retarted. Taxpayers money paying his salary.

  2. Siyai vaHungwe ava vamava kuita take take navo havana chavakatadza panyaya iyi asi vamwe vedu vari kuda kudiverta attention yevanhu kuzvinhu zvine musoro vachitaura zvisina basa neruzhinhi. Havana ku bata chibharo amai ava uye kana ndichiverenga, vaviri ava vakadanana kwenguva refu.Anodanana nemukadzi asina murume ari nani pane anotora mukadzi wemunhu.Rambai makanyarara vaHungwe guruva richapera manje manje muchenjerere kuti vemhuri yemudiwa wenyu vachapiwa pressure vakazotanga kutaura zvisina basa.Siyei nyaya dzehupfumi hwenyika hwadai kudonhera pasi muchitaura zvisina musoro.Shame maningi stereki.

    • Chivadye ndinoda kukubata muromo pamwe chete pawatianodanana nemukadzi asina murume ari nani. I dont agree with you to some extent.

      The issue is, if that woman was divorced, and the ex-husband is still alive, according to the bible, that woman remains mukadzi wemunhu. A man should not marry or have sex with such an one. Its adultery. If she is a widow, he was free to marry her to avoid the sin of fornication.

      So in terms of morality, our learned judge will always be on the wrong side for having sex with a woman who is not his wife. He should simply have married the woman. The isshe of having a mistress is wdrong biblically.

  3. Just keep your cool Justice,It shall be well.Zvinowanika.Let stupid dogs bark.All shall be well mdara wangu.

  4. u know ive cum to realise that 99% of media reporting are total lies bt i tend to believe some of the stories depending on how i feel bou d pesen aktaurwa nezvake…w feed ourselves wt lies evry single day…nt healthy!

  5. Ivo vana Chasura vanokwira , musatamba navo. Bvunzai vese vakakwigwa naana chati bwege ava, unotosura, kumama kana kufa chaiko

  6. Kufa munhu anongofa wani.Iyo family yemufi haisi kutombotaura nezvenyaya iyi, Ko imi vemapepa nevari kutaurta vaya chii chaizvo chiri kunyanya kukurwazayi ipapa.Iprivate life ya Hungwe iyi isinei nechekuita nebasa rake so leave him pliz.

  7. He is wrong. The Lord punished him for FORNICATION. It’s fortunate he’s still alive. He must repent coz it is a curse that will affect his children, grandchildren, great grand children in that order.

    • Mr Sensitive, like i said earlier on, it may fornication if the woman was unmarried or a widow but if she was once married and divorced, and the ex-husband be alive, then it is ADULTERY and not fornication. Judge vanofanira kutendeuka ava.

  8. Please I appeal to people to leave HUNGWE alone. he has done nothing wrong, If he had done , the family would have raised it. All people and the media are merely speculating. Honourable Judge, please just Zip your good mouth.There is a section that want to discredit you. We respect you dearly.

  9. I agree with you Madzibaba. kufa kunoitika irrespective of one’s company. Besides hungwe is not denying that he was not involved with the deceased. So why the fuss? how many people out there are having these ‘extra marital affairs’. personally I think his presence at the time of death doesnt make him a criminal. normally people dont do things without motive. So those who are throwing accusations, enlighten us on the motive.

    • Does the fact that everyone is doing it give us a licence to have extra-marital affairs? Why not just marry and have more than one wife? The judge was wrong.

  10. Veduwee, with all due respect Elly the bible also says if a man does not love his wife he shall give her a certificate of divorce and she shall be free to marry. She had the certificate. The families knew about it. Our culture also says mudzimai should be appraised if a man wants to take another woman. Given presence yaMai Hungwe I would think these issues were known to all. Siyanayi navaHungwe. I also feel for Gladys children.

    We all know kuti kana nguva yemunhu yakwana yakwana. Painokwanira nemakwaniro Mwari ndivo vanoziva. Inga mumwe anonzi akaudzwa kuti achafa ndokuti ndinoswera pamba motor ikapotsa road ikamupwanyira pamubheda arere wanhi. Musarwa dzenyu kuna Justice Hungwe. One of the best Judges we have ever had.
