Is Grace out too?


A remark by President Robert Mugabe when he addressed service chiefs and war veterans yesterday may have been loaded. Mugabe was quoted as saying: “We are experiencing it (bickering within the party) for the first time in ZANU-PF and for that matter it’s a woman who is saying ndakudawo kumbogara…” He was referring to his deputy Joice Mujuru that she now wanted to take over. But by saying “for that matter it’s a woman” did Mugabe mean that the country or the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front was not ready for a woman leader? If that it so, what does this mean for his wife, Grace? Is she out too? There has been a lot of speculation that Mugabe is grooming his wife to eventually take over, but some have argued that she was merely deployed to get rid of Mujuru. She knows her place. The nation will know by Sunday.
