Grace humiliates Cde Chinx’s second wife

FIRST Lady Grace Mugabe yesterday waded into the family affairs of popular musician, Dickson Chingaira, popularly known as Cde Chinx, declaring that his second wife does not deserve to be accommodated in a house donated to the family by organisers of the Zimbabwe Music Awards (Zima).

Grace also took a dig at officials responsible for demolishing houses built on undesignated land, saying they deserved to be cursed.

Speaking at the handover of the house in Sentosa, Harare, Grace declared that the property belonged to Cde Chinx’s first wife, Patricia.

She said the second wife, Ntombizodwa, should be happy with what she has now, as she was responsible for the polygamous situation in the family.

“I don’t want to turn my back and leave things in disarray,” she said, describing herself as a judge.

“Cde Chinx, we know that you are not feeling well and sometimes when a person is not feeling well, he or she would not want to be bothered. Sometimes, people will make decisions for you and you wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone.”

Ntombizodwa, who was sitting on Cde Chinx’s left side in the front row, remained stoned-faced as Grace delivered her “verdict”.

“We don’t want to leave this place to hear that people stabbed each other, we don’t want to hear that. Do you agree with me?” she asked people who had attended the function.

“Ntombizodwa, you are junior and you should accept the situation that you created. You created that situation for yourself and if you didn’t like it, you must have objected. This house will be left for Patricia.”

But the veteran musician was not amused by the decision, and took Grace to task, asking if she was going to organise something for his junior wife.

In response, Grace threw the ball back to Zima chairman Joseph Nyadzayo to solve the matter and satisfy all. The otherwise colourful function turned sombre for some, including Cde Chinx’s second wife, while the elder wife’s supporters were engulfed in mirth.

The First Lady then turned the gun on Buhera South MP Joseph Chinotimba (Zanu PF) for posting videos of the bedridden Cde Chinx on social media platforms.

She described the move as inhuman and disrespectful.

Grace also spoke strongly against demolition of structures.

“There are people who are just retrogressive elements, who think of themselves when they get into positions,” she said, describing the demolitions as unfair.

“I always condemn that in no uncertain terms, I don’t want that. You see a person building his house, from foundation up to window level, roof level, but someone comes to demolish it, saying it’s an illegal structure.

“When it was being built, were you not seeing it? Are you saying Zimbabweans, all of us, are blind, we don’t see?
These are the people we should be praying for so that they get cursed because of such cruelty, you know how hard times are. We are all supposed to work extremely hard to eke out a living.”

Grace said demolitions must be fully investigated, with all those implicated brought to book.

Ironically, Grace and her family have been accused of throwing out people on Arnold Farm.

Although she skirted the evictions of over 200 villagers at Arnold Farm to pave way for the expansion of her massive business empire in Mazowe, Grace spoke highly of the land reform programme.

“It was unfortunate that by that time (land reform programme), some were hoodwinked by the detractors and being told that don’t follow (President Robert) Mugabe because that is an election gimmick,” she said.

“They said Mugabe wants to go for elections and wants to win, but who is having the last laugh? It’s Zanu PF.

“We are not stealing anyone’s land. That is what we were meant to believe that we are depriving someone of their land, but no, it’s our land that was taken from our ancestors.

“Sometimes we hear phrases that we never heard during the (Ian) Smith regime that there was no rule of law, there were no human rights and whatever, (but) they were never applied during those days.”

Grace castigated corrupt people bent on enriching themselves.

“Authorities, I hope you take heed. We don’t want you to allocate people land in a dubious manner, in an unscrupulous manner and make people lose,” she said.

The First Lady castigated anti-government protests, saying they do not take the country forward.

“I don’t know if loud protests will contribute anything to nation-building. Action speaks louder than words,” she said.

“What we do is very important and you don’t want to be remembered for leading demonstrations, you don’t want to be remembered that in a street fight, you were the first to throw a punch. As Zimbabweans, let’s know where we came from.”

    1. I ONLY APPRECIATE HOW SHE ADRRESSED ABOUT THOSE CORRUPT,BULLY AND OPRRESSIVE LOCAL AUTHORITY DOGS WHO DEMOLISHES HARDLY BUILT HOUSES BY STRUGGLING POOR ZIMBABWEANS…..SURELY THESE DOGS SHOULD BE THROWN INTO THE DEN OF LIONS…however……THIS MRITAL ISSUE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT TO CHINX AND HER WIFEs RATHER THAN CONVERTING THIS FUNCTION TO HORROR

  5. And that’s the mad woman you Zanuist want as a present of this our country Zimbabwe.. I don’t know how some people’s brains work.

  6. Why look at the speck in your brother’s eye without noticing the log in your own eye? Surely, the pot calls the kettle black.

      Grace did the right thing by giving the house to the first wife otherwise it was going to create an explosive situation after the death of Chinx. The issue of ownership and inheritance has been settled. If Chinx had other properties then he can give something to the second wife. You cannot expect well wishers to give you the cigar and the matches and to light up the cigar for you. Hats off to Zima for helping Cde Chinx

      1. thats very stupid uchatongerwa imba naGrace ukapusa, this is a family issue not her issue, she should keep quiet she is not a judge or a relative to Chinx

  7. Mai ava sometimes vanomborasika. She is dividing instead of uniting Chinx family. We always hear of the nonagenarian criticising the western countries of meddling in Zim’s internal affairs, now the incumbent’s wife is meddling in other pple’s marriages.
    When addressing pple someone should write a speech for Grace to read.
    Who knows, maybe she did not mean what she said.
    LAPSUS LINGUAE, maybe.

  8. She is talking from experience for Grace is a home wrecker herself. When she snatched Mugabe from a bed ridden Sally aiti arikuitei. Ava mai ava vane urevi zvokwadi. Kana kumbotsveruka bodo.

  9. Mai ava sometimes vanomborasika. I think the best is for her to think b4 she talk. Its not bad to advice pple but sometimes meddling in other pple’s marriages is BAD. Chinx has got his tetes and Chinx’s wives have tetes who give advices. Here, the first lady erred.
    Her words are more of dividing than uniting.
    The nonagenarian is against western nations that meddles into Zim’s internal affairs but look, the wife is meddling into other pple’s marriages. THATS BAD.

  13. 37 years after independence and Cde Chinx the so called war vet has to be given a house; it just shows how zanu pf uses people and then leave them with nothing. After all the years that Cde Chinx worked he must have built a house for himself in a surburb of his choice, but alas he was just jumping up and down singing hondo yemuno muZimbabwe when he was living in a squalid house. So vamwe vaimbi vose vachapihwa imba kana varwara? What of the millions of old grannies all over Zimbabwe who are living in ramshackles, who is gonna build houses for them.
    Dr amai if a structure is built illegally it must be pulled down. Your husband and yourself have been fuelling these illegal structures because you have let the land barons do what they want. What’s more you have been evicting people from your farm in Mazoe. Dr you lack intergrity.

    Grace Ntobizodwa ava kunyomba mumwe wake, wakoshiwa kuti wakaindawo pachibari Mai Mugabe vachi vapenyu, dzimba ngadzisapunzwa asi mwedzi wapera wakadzingirira dzimwe mhuri kuMazowe.

  31. I cant believe this drama really happened in real life, I’m hoping I will read another news article released tomorrow claiming this was all just a joke

  32. A seasoned second wife or (small house ) attacking a genuinely formalized second wife!!!

  33. Pabarika senior wife gets first preference, First Lady is right. the same would have happened kuna Grace Mugabe if Sally Mugabe was alive in a similar situation. Vahosi ndivaHosi. Vagona apa amai.

  34. apa grace ari correct imba kumukadzi mukuru

  35. The kettle calling the pot black!! Let him/her without sin cast the first stone!! This lady is supposed to have a Phd!!!

  36. Is it possible murambatsvina happened without the president’s approval. that would mean the man has been off-sick for far too long

  37. Grace is correct like it or not like her or not according to our culture and the law of the land and biblically, she is correct. First wife considered most.

  38. amai munorasika zveshuwa.yangu nyaya iripekuputswa kwedzimba dzakavakwa zvirikunze kwemutemo.matokanganwa kuti bato renyu rezanu pf ndiro rinopa vanhu pekugara zvirikunze kwemutemo makanzuru aripo.kana makanzuru akuita basa rawo monyomba.even in rural areas you cannot just build a house anywhere without the aproval of the sabhuku or sadunhu.so stop talking about things you dont know about madam.people will see you as a mad woman.

  39. The award is for cde Chinx, he is the winner of that award.The wives are support pillars of cde Chinx. The house was given to the family of cde Chinx. Why separate the family of someone as if you the ones who awarded cde CHINX that merit award. Nyaraiwo pane zvamunotaura muri pamberi pevanhu.

  40. You are just missing one thing kushaya bonde for quite a span kunopengesa and so i guess hure iri rinonzi Doctor Grace Mugabe rakwara nemoto mubrugwa to an extend that she is now running mad pliz shedzai Gono naMakamba vatibetserewo nekukwira hure iri zvakaomarara pamwe anga penge zvishoma

  41. Grace also spoke strongly against demolition of structures.

    “There are people who are just retrogressive elements, who think of themselves when they get into positions,” she said, describing the demolitions as unfair.

    One question begging an answer who authorised Murambatsvina (The campaign started in 2005 and according to United Nations estimates has affected at least 700,000 people directly through loss of their home or livelihood and thus could have indirectly affected around 2.4 million people) and who condemned / castigated the UN Special Rep. for Human Settlement, Anna Kajumulo Tibaijuka,when she finally submitted her report to the world body back then ???????????????????????????

  42. Hse demolitions aaah ko mhuri dzepaArnold farm

  43. grace, the doctor, unwittingly told chinx and the world that he has only a few days to live: now she is playing God!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. kutogova nhaka saparufu. vakomana! vamwe vanhu havana kufunda

  45. kkkkkkk Chinx Ari Nani aunza Mumba vanwe tokuzivayi , hamubvire mumahure nemasmall house kuzoti Kuma avenues vamwe hamubvire.

  46. mabvudza zvenyika

    Grace akapfimbwa akaona kwaMugabe kuri nane ndokuoneka akaroorwa haana kubika mapoto.Chaunoswera kuona chihure chemukadzi weumwe uri Robert here iwe.Iwe mukadzi wako akati haachadi anenge asisakudi rega aende kune varume kwawo.Munhu ari kutaura nokuti ane mukana wacho tsvee zvataurwa,a fact should remain a fact.An adult has a right to make a decision Mukadzi uyu anokubatsirai chaizvo munyaya dze corruption.You are told lets attack those submarines you start attacking her anoneta ukaramba uchifamba nemigata.Ngatiomberere pashoma pari kuda kuitwa zvakanaka ndokuti tibvise huipi.

  47. Grace Mugabe akangofa chete hapana kana anombokuteerera.

  48. kkkkkkkkkkk haaaa Grace shld revise her manners and understand her boundaries.

  49. This is clearly a case of the kettle calling the pot black

  50. Who said Cde Chinx was going to die before any of the wives.

  51. ngarara taurai

    doctor amai did very well a normal woman can never support vakadzi vanouya pane umwe

  52. And someone says she can be a president my foot. Who is she to interfer with Chinx’s life, last time I saw him happily with his wives now she has put a wedge between them. Unoziva chinhu chekupiwaka unongosekerera asi uchitoona kuti mhuri yako yaurayiwa apa. Mugabe must take his second wife to a hospital for urgent head scan.

  53. “Cde Chinx, we know that you are not feeling well and sometimes when a person is not feeling well, he or she would not want to be bothered. Sometimes, people will make decisions for you and you wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone.” Hear hear, she is just doing that making decisions for him.

  54. I think the first Lady Grace Mugabe has enough money to buy a house for the second wife. She should have made a wise decision just to buy Chinx’s second wife a house so that there will be peace amongst the wives.
