Zimbabwe’s motor-mouth First Lady, Grace Mugabe, continued her rallies on Monday and bizarrely claimed she was in possession of a video recording of Vice President Joice Mujuru wearing a mini-skirt and insulting President Mugabe.
In the video recording, Mujuru is said to have complained that: “Mai Mugabe vanongoswera vachikwekweredza nekamudhara ikako nenyaya yekukara mari (Grace Mugabe is forcing that old man to remain in power because of greed).”
”Mugabe is a grandmaster and will have the last laugh. I trapped Mujuru and I now have recording of her in a mini-skirt, speaking ill of me and the president. We are tired of this stupidity, ngaaende izvozvi,” a fired up Grace went on.
The First Lady was addressing students from various tertiary institutions around the country who had gathered at her Mazowe Orphanage Home.
She also used the occasion to repeat her demands for the VP to step down saying; “Mademon ngaadzokere kuDotito (Mujuru’s home area), we exorcise those demons in the name of Jesus.”
Grace also attacked Mujuru’s liberation war history by repeating claims that she had not actually shot down a helicopter as previously narrated by former combatants.
“If she brought down a plane that is her business. She must stop beating her own drum – what you didn’t do, you didn’t do!” Grace rumbled on.
“She must stop blaming the dead for amassing wealth using corrupt means. Why did she inherit things that were not properly acquired,” Grace said in apparent reference to the VP’s late husband, General Solomon Mujuru, who died in a suspicious fire two years ago.
The First Lady defended her luxurious lifestyle claiming; “We are the biggest dairy farmers in the country with over 2,500 dairy cows. We took risks and over borrowed for this project.”
Some of those who attended to support Grace Mugabe included Deputy Foreign Affairs minister Christopher Mutsvangwa, Environment Minister Saviour Kaukuwere, Patrick Zhuwao (Mugabe’s nephew), outgoing Zanu PF Women’s League chairperson Oppah Muchinguri and musician Soul Jah Love.
Grace Mugabe finished her speech by attacking reporters from the Daily News telling them “You write what you like about me because she (Mujuru) owns 10% of the paper which supports the MDC, that is why we say she is apart of MDC.”
