First Lady, Grace Mugabe says Zanu PF will never lose an election. “I do not think it will ever happen that Zanu-PF will lose this election. I don’t think it will — never.” She said as a result her family was not prepared for failure at elections.
“That one is not an issue. Zanu-PF is the party that liberated this country and we must not forget that. There are many who fought for this country, including us who did not go to war, but were supporting it. When we had the first elections in which indigenous Zimbabweans participated, I voted.
“So, you can see where the patriotism started. The same kind of passion I had for my country then is 20-fold now. I do not think Zanu-PF will ever lose the elections. There is a saying that: ‘You cannot fool all the people all the time’, our detractors came and tried to fool the people, but they cannot fool them all of the time,” she told Zanu PF controlled Sunday Mail newspaper.
Grace said her children were too young to worry about politics. But she said her son Bellarmine wanted to be a politician “without any fear at all and he knows what he wants. He is a very funny boy and quite outgoing. He likes talking politics with his father, asking questions.”
Grace said she bought most of Mugabe’s clothes.
“ He does but I buy a lot for him as well . . . I do not choose clothes for him though; he did not marry me to be his butler, no. He is very organised. Before he goes to bed at night, he will open his wardrobe, look for the matching tie and all.
“Everyday he chooses his clothes unless if it’s a special occasion then I dictate to him. I tell him that this is what you are going to wear. (He then responds) ‘Okay Amai, okay’. (laughs)”
