Goreraza was married to Grace between 1983 to 1996 before the infamous scandal that saw Mugabe snatch her away and Goreraza posted to China where he was a defence attache.

In 2001, when Goreraza was hospitalized in China, both then President Robert Mugabe and First Lady Grace visited him.

Grace and Goreraza had one son, Russell Goreraza, who now manages his mother’s extensive farm property, Gushungo Dairy Estate.
