    • Matibili once called the residents of Mbare ‘mabhrandhaya’. This shallow fake doctor has a nerve going there. Mbareans are not stupid, they will never vote for this thief.

  1. Povo yaramba zvekumanikidzwa izvi . Isu munomuMbare tatoruza mariyakawanda ne disturbance ya Grace iyi. Zim stock exchange has been spoiled by the unwanted and illegal rally in our territory.

  2. I now believe what Gramsci views as political hegemony wc is gained thru coercion. Y forcing the people to go and listen to a bad mouthed lady who does not know even a bullet?

  3. Vese vanhu avo vanoda mabasa,,take take nevanhu kunovaunganidza kumbare and abusing state resources,, please stop it zanu pf,,the nation is bleeding

  4. The Women’s League boss says she will tell Mugabe to build new flats for the people. Zimasset will finally take off . Garai manyoresa mazita mungazoshaya ma flats matsva .

  5. Mai va Chatunga avo, Zimbabweans are very stupid indeed, from a 25yr old home wrecker to a first lady, now gunning for Presidency on the same fake promises and now some idiots are even calling her Amai..kkkkkkkkk, Lord deliver my brothers from a demon of stupidity

  6. T
    anwza nekunyuperwa imi matadza kure surface uban tared road mozovaka ma flats mari yacho iripi imi mazimbo musabvuma kunyerwa.

  7. Amai Grace is only coming now to lie to the people after 35 years of husband’s failure to address issues.
    The only thing to do is to gather and receive parcels which the Zimbabweans have been long waiting to receive. Its their wealthy which generate the parcels but were being used the other way round.
    If you steal something, you may only be forgiven when you take it back to the owner.

  8. The Egyptians prepared fo the lifehereafta .Snme idiots must also prepare fo life in the absence of their god father which is just around the corner

  9. Does what she is saying need a rally? why ae people of zimbabwe so stupid to accept to be abused like this. It only needed her maybe to call journalists

  10. Those hostels have been like that even before you Bona was born, they stayed 8 families per room and after murambatsvina it increased to even 24 families that is why the kids a always loitering outside kumbopa vabereki chance to add more lives

  11. I salute people of Mbare, for going to the rally-and hypocritically sloganering -come 2018 vanovhotera pavanoda,nekuti ukasaenda ku rally uno makwa ,Va Kasukuwere how many flats asati apera kuvakwa akasiiwa nava Chombooo ?Chikepe chenyu chaakunyura choda JESU.

  12. Is that all she had to say…nothing absolutely nothing with substance came out of the lady’s mouth , kuunganidza vanhu kuvapa mvura here vakomana kasi nde yemuteuro HOLY WATER coz mumaprofita varimo full time.

  13. “I know there are land barons who are cheating people because they are desperate. I hear they are staying 15 families in one house here in Mbare. Government should build houses for people.” Food for thought, ukatonzwa munhu achiti after 35 years oti “I hear they are staying 15 families in one house” honestly after 3 years anoita zvekunzwa, god have mercy on our beloved country, no one can silence her of course but I know only you Lord can silence this woman.
