Zimbabwe first lady announces herself as new President after Robert Mugabe hints at retirement over health issues

5

Zimbabwean first lady, Grace Mugabe has announced herself as the new president to take over when her husband, Robert Mugabe finally steps down due to his concerned health issues.

Robert Mugabe, is the world’s oldest and one of the longest serving Head of State at 92 years old. Mugabe having ruled for over 30 years, was reportedly advised to drop out of the 2018 election race by his medical doctors, which possibly is the main reason he is forcing himself into retirement.




Speaking at a gathering over the weekend, Mashonaland West women’s league chairperson, Angeline Muchemeyi revealed that Grace Mugabe who has been the league secretary since 2014, told them that there is no point for her fighting for a lesser position after several plans and arrangements had been made with the ailing president to hand over the role of the state affairs to her.

The First Lady said:

‘I’m the wife of the president, I’m the president already … I plan and do everything with the president, what more do I want, for now the position of the women boss is enough.’

    1. What has her decision to take over after her husband got to do with being African? Leave us (Africans ) alone. You talk bad about Africa and yet there are so many of you in our continent, Indians/whites and Chinese…… Zimbabwe will decide who they want to be president, Grace can’t impose herself on the people.

  1. First Lady Grace Mugabe, is within her constitutional right to stand for any political seat, including the presidency of Zimbabwe. The other right is to hold a free, fair and credible election to prevent any claims of rigging from any quarters. Good luck.
