They want to kill us: Grace

FIRST Lady Grace Mugabe has claimed that President Robert Mugabe has been threatened with death if a certain person does not succeed him, the clearest indication that Zanu PF’s succession wars are getting messy.

by BLESSED MHLANGA/KENNEDY NYAVAYA

“We are being threatened day and night that if so and so does not succeed Mugabe, we will kill you with guns.

“Kill us? Let’s see. Why are you not killing us?” she asked rhetorically on Thursday at the launch of the Empower Bank and the Zimbabwe Champions and Heroes of the Economic Empowerment Revolution (ZIMCHEER).

Grace said she and Mugabe would not bow down to such pressure and Zanu PF had a structured way of choosing the President’s successor.

“We must all agree that when the President says one day he wants to leave office, then we must all agree, as a party, who will take over and not to hold guns against each other,” she said emotionally.

“No to firing bazooka!

“We are being threatened day and night that if their preferred candidate does not take over we will be killed.

“We will not bow down to that pressure, never!

“You are going to arrest all of us and take us to prison, that’s the only way you can rule.”

In a telling statement that revealed how seriously Mugabe was taking such threats, Grace metaphorically said the President was sleeping with one eye open to thwart any coup.


“Some people behave as if while they were at war, they held two guns and fought the struggle by themselves,” she continued.
“We don’t want to hear that.

“We want to be free.

“This is a free Zimbabwe.

“The President is sleeping with one eye open.

“I am not going to do that, I will sleep with both eyes closed, because I have bodyguards outside, who appreciate.”

Grace warned that a coup would be dangerous for Zimbabwe, particularly as African leaders would not recognise a leader, who came to power through a putsch.

“They are saying they will stage a coup,” she said, without naming anyone.

“No one will recognise a person who comes to power through a coup.

“You all know that the African Union will not recognise.

“Sadc will not recognise a person who comes to power through a coup and even talking about that issue is treason.

“We are not arresting you because President Mugabe is a person with a kind heart.

“If it was in other countries, people would have been in prison long back.”

In the past, Grace has accused unnamed people of plotting to kill her children.

Grace, who was accompanied by her daughter, Bona and son-in-law, Simba Chikore, then tore into Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was the subject of her fury, as claims that the latter was poisoned at Mugabe’s rally in Gwanda in August refuse to go away.
“Why would I want to kill someone appointed by my husband?

“Who is Mnangagwa?” she asked as the whole Harare International Conference Centre fell into silence.

“What is he on this earth? He is a nobody.

“If you get to a point of lying in politics, it means you are now clueless and if indeed you are, you should go home and rest (resign).”

Zanu PF is in the throes of a bitter factional war, which threatens to tear the party apart, as jockeying to succeed Mugabe nears a climax.

Two distinct factions, one said to be loyal to Mnangagwa known as Team Lacoste and another linked to Grace known as G40, are now openly facing off.

  2. The power of the holy spirit working to free Zimbos. The mighty God about to show his power. Jesus at the entrance of Zimbabwe. Very soon – Freedom

  3. …10 days to go, according to the prophet!!!

  4. This woman forgets that Mugabe still got SADC and AU sympathy despite having stolen the people’s vote in 2008, action which is certainly akin to a coup. Saka udyire hunongotendedzwa kana hwaitwa naMugabe? No Zanu character is fit 2 rule Zimbabwe but i would rather have Ngwena takeover the country than to have oppotunistic sluts who slept their way to the state house to tell this country what to do.

  5. Comment…Munonyanya kujairira vanhu dr grace michirova vana vevamwe muchiti I’mugabes wife I’m above the law. Motuka chero Munhu kuzvima face rally zvenyu apavanhu havana cash muchamama chete believe that

  6. End time signs! No rocket science is required to tell that the end is drawing nigh by the day.

  7. They are not killing you coz nobody wants to kill you. Last time you said Mujuru wanted to bewitch you and now you want us to believe this trash too? I dont think anyone will shed any tears if they decide to kill you

  8. Chinenge chakadyiwa chopfuka mu party iyi. Urayanai, ko vamakauraya handi vanhu here?

  9. My worry is the youth to be subjected to such culture. Secondly no such an aged man at 93 can touch a woman. Most of the body parts are dead now. Please talk about his past when he was active and had two children with you out of wedlock while the wife of his youth was alife. Thirdly in what capacity and under which mandate are you exercising these powers of shouting and scolding senior government officials. If he is your husband’said employees is it how you reprimand your employees. Which labour law allows you to do that. This is dictatorship at its worst. I wish Auxlia could square with you. She cannot allow her husband to be treated like thato. I do not know if our constitution allows the wife of a president to exercise such powers as the one you are enjoying.
    Lastly let me warn you. If you remove ED then ZANU yafa and your chances of occupying any government position will be zero. Youth iyi haiitwe relied on. If any party wins other than ZANU PF then you and your husband will be involved exile a thing I would not want because president sacrificed a lot and deserves a peaceful end and must rest with others at the hero’s acre

  10. No one would kill a soon to be 94 year old. Nature will take its course. And Zimbabwe for once will be free from the clutches of the Mugabe family.

  11. The game is getting dirtier and dirtier by the hour.

  12. Seriously Grace? These are just panic stations. Mugabe is gone already going and he is on his way out. Thought you Grace was so popular, what happened?

  13. Nothing to say Mr/Mrs Editor. You never publish my views. All you ever publish is,”Your contribution is being moderated”. So much about promoting freedom of expression.

  14. the prophet of 17 october 2017 was right. i can feel and sense that something is about to happen. lets wait and see

  15. Benito Mussolin style kkkkk rega timboone

  16. For n purpose of correction, the vp is not an employee of the president nor of the state;he is actually a public representative of the people just as good as the president himself;his post is not the president’s designation but is constitutionally provided for & the president is constitutionally under instruction by the state to appoint a vp rather of his choice to perform the functions of the state together.They are not employees of n one nor are they public servants like the permanent secretaries but representatives of the people at state.All the appointees of the president like cabinet ministers & their deputies are representatives of the people at state on behalf of the president whoz an elected official by the public.So the vp is so much a public official than the first lady who is only private family member of the head of state

  17. urayayi mhani

    1. The problem is not really Gucci. people like ED himself have helped Gucci rise. Gucci have seen kuti she can rise easily by making them turn against each other eliminating them one by one from the strongest to the weakest. ED was there when other comrades like Jabulani Sibanda were booted. He was there when Runaida was humiliated and thrown to the dustbins. This is were these comrades lose it. Real comrades stand by each other. ED was not supposed to watch as heavyweights like Mutasa and Gumbo get expelled like kids. Elimination of such heavyweights is a step to presidium for Grace. Open eyes comrades. right now Sydney is happy thinking he will scoop the presidency…maya mdara. Grace akatokupimayi and shes using you. Sydney stand by ED, all comrades say no to this impending dynastic rule.

  18. Comment…Unowona VaMnangagwa semukomana wenyu wemombe uku sekeramayi is watching? You are a Dr of confusion unoda kutamba nepfungwa dzavanhu but wanyangira munhu asiriiye apakumama chete. Futsek

  21. KUTAURA kwamusina kuswera

  22. Dr Amai vakuzviziva kt in less than 12 months kunenge kwanemaElections?

  23. Emmerson must jump before he is pushed. Can he not see the big writing is on the wall? He will not last until Christmas.

  24. KKKKk I wonder why anyone would want to kill them kkkkk what goes around comes around.

  25. Hanya nani. pedzeranai hataveko kwamaidya mose.

  26. The vp is by far, by virtue of seniority highly placed official of state with authority than the first lady who is not even among the state hierarchy but a mere private citizen of the family of the head of state. Itz a typical kind of abuse of state power on the part of the president himself, for n first lady to subject a country’s vp to n public ridicule. Itz a typical kind of corruption on the part of the head of state himself to tolerate such kind of scenario

  27. The tribe which Grace and his disgrace hubby stired is not that shallow and docile maZimbo. Robert, you cursed the heritage so the end is nigh. To the Rozvi clan, i urge you to take the required steps to twart the machinations propagated by Grace and Robert. We have been so quite for some time but this is the time to tell Rex Nhongo in the grave that he made a stupid and gravy idea by choosing Robert to lead this country.

    The irony of life is that Karanga as Rex was, ended at being slaughtered ruthlessly by the very person who he chose way back to lead the struggle. Dare rechimurenga era is over but anyone who is dying for truth should go and ask Rugare Gumbo about how Rex sold out.

    When Rex’s parents moved from Zimuto area after being tormented by Smith regime, they thought they had made a good idea but i say alas…. Where aere you the Mujurus.

  31. The vp is quite highly placed somebody but the first lady is just a nobody;only an ordinary relative of the president-only some base individual of this society.For Such an individual to shout at highly placed public official supposedly with authority is unheard of & corruption

  32. Hahahaha! How wrong you are primary bitch! There are so many more that will have your blood and your shit for brains husband till that name is wiped from the earth!

  33. Oftentimes, hallucinations and nightmares are perceptions of a certain reality that come to haunt us forever. Grace’s conscience is struggling to yield to her perceived nemesis-Mnangagwa.

  34. Comment…this woman is a disgrace, she has eye but cannot see, she needs devine deliverance!

  35. Afraid of being killed. The husband said has got degrees in violence. What could be happening to her. Those who don’t fear don’t shout out about the possibility of being killed, in public.
    Youth empowerment bank meeting. Somehow, raises up curses for mnangagwa. Seems to be no connection there and nobody can explain how the mnangagwa name somehow surfaces here.
    Ample proof that the lady is not a politician; lacks administrative skills necessary to run a mere homestead, let alone a country.
    What a pity.

  36. Even after mnangagwa’s departure, by resignation, death or expulsion from the party, there will still be oceans of opposition to the mugabe family dictatorship. They say one man one farm and proceed to grab tens of thousands of hectares of productive land which they turn into orphanages and accommodation for party rallies where rivals are publicly dissected. This country is for everyone, not just the mugabe family or those they choose to handpick to banquet with.
    Equally, the presidency is open to anybody who wants to contest. It is not a special, closed preserve of mugabe and his wife and children.

    Clear admission that Power resides in Munangagwa not in Mugabe of Grace. she is actually complaining that they are being harassed.(By who?)

  42. Grace will find out one day that Ngwena is not a nobody. Out of interest, if the African Union does not recognise leaders who come to power through a coup, then why is she worried? Does she also appreciate that the African Union is well known for not interfering in the internal affairs of member states?

  43. Signs of a hornny woman missing a real man in bed

  44. immature politics from a second lady of this country surely Mugabe with his so called wisdom is heading for doom. great men from the creation were despised just because of bad choice of ladies.great leaders die shamefully like Samson Solomon.the best advice for grace is to tell her hubby to retire and ask for peacifull rest from the people of Zimbabwe at least we will also consider the great thing he did before

  45. Grace Mugabe is turning to SADC to stop the coup plotters forgetting that President Mugabe threaten to leave SADC when he was asked to implement reforms to ensure free and fair elections. If SADC turned a blind eye to another rigged election then they will find it very difficult to stop a military coup especially when the coup plotted should claim the coup was necessary because Mugabe rigged the elections.
