How times change- Grace wanted to be a preacher


First lady Grace Mugabe had no political ambitions at all 20 years ago. All she wanted was to become a preacher. He is a story that The Insider ran on 21 August 1998.


First lady Grace Mugabe has finally set the record straight.

She only has one property and that is her Borrowdale house.

She does not own anything in anybody's name especially people who are not related to her.

If she wanted to use other people's names, she has enough relatives.

She has four children.

She has businesses.

She has no political ambitions and is not being groomed for the presidency.

Her ambition is, in fact, to become a preacher and spread the word of God.

At times when attending ZANU-PF meetings, when people shout slogans she ends up saying: "Amen" or "Halleluiah".
