Grace Mugabe on rape
The first lady of Zimbabwe, Mrs Grace Mugabe, has revealed that women are to blame if they got raped while wearing exposed clothing.
Mrs Mugabe, who was speaking at a rally in Mberengwa, southern Zimbabwe on Saturday, said they had no right to complain if they ever got raped while wearing mini-skirts.
“If you walk around wearing mini skirts displaying your thighs and inviting men to drool over you, then you want to complain when you have been raped?” she was reported as saying in local media. “That is unfortunate because it will be your fault.”
Her opinions seem to be very different from her husband’s, who has plans to castrate any convicted rapists.
“Don’t say Mr Mugabe is becoming cruel because we want to protect our women. So men, take care,” he said in a meeting with members of parliament.
