Grace Mugabe poised to take over from her husband



Grace Mugabe poised to take over from her husband

A day after Africa’s longest serving President Robert Mugabe announced he was retiring from public office while addressing a group of war veterans, his wife, Grace Mugabe has picked up the gauntlet and is being tipped to be the next President of Zimbabwe.

According to reports, Grace has gradually been preparing grounds for take-over for two years now when she first appeared as a contender for the top job after she became head of her husband’s party Zanu-PF’s Women’s League.

After mounting the saddle as head of her husband’s party, Grace has since been slowly removing any real challengers in her quest to take-over from her tyrant husband who has been President of Zimbabwe since the country gained independence.

The possibility of Grace succeeding her husband has sent fear down the spines of many who are alarmed that an even bigger despot could take over from Robert Mugabe as Zimbabwe’s president.

Human right campaigners are worried about the possibility of the much younger Mrs Mugabe becoming president especially with her similar tyrannical ways which are akin to that of her 92-year-old husband.
