Mugabe's Wife Announces Herself As President... to take over from her husband

First lady of Zimbabwe, Grace Mugabe, has declared herself the new president that would take over as Robert Mugabe is finally set to step down due to old age.

Grace Mugabe said to the ruling Zanu-PF party women’s league that she is already the president, as she has made plans and arrangement with her husband, Robert Mugabe.

Grace’s announcement comes after the President announced that he is working towards his retirement as the president.

Mugabe made the shocking announcement to veterans, who came to solidify their support for him. He admitted that Zimbabwe is apparently in a financial crisis – which spells doom for the citizens and the country at large.

According to reports, Mashonaland West Zanu-PF women’s league chairperson Angeline Muchemeyi said Grace, who has been the Zanu-PF women’s league secretary since 2014, told them that there was no point for her fighting to be vice president, a lesser position, when she is already in-charge.
