Family Business: Wife Of Robert Mugabe, Grace, Talks About Succeeding Her Husband As President

share on:

Robert Mugabe might be stepping down as President of Zimbabwe soon, and wife Grace seems keen on her husband’s position.

Campaigning outside Harare, Grace Mugabe, 49, said she too could be president, while accusing Vice-President Joice Mujuru of plotting to topple her husband.

“Some people are saying I have ambitions to be president. Why not? Am I not a citizen of Zimbabwe?” she said, fanning speculation of a Mugabe dynasty in the making.

Robert Mugabe, 90, has been in power since 1980 and has long avoided appointing a successor.

Mujuru along with powerful Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa — who in the past controlled the secret police and military — are seen as leading contenders to succeed Robert Mugabe.
