First Lady hypocrisy on US$10k from Mujuru

WHILE Grace Mugabe has been ranting and raving about Vice-President Joice Mujuru’s alleged involvement in corruption and accusing her of being a divisive force in Zanu PF, her hypocrisy has been exposed by the fact that she recently received a donation of US$10 000 from Mujuru to carry out her humanitarian work.

Grace recently completed a two-week countrywide tour ostensibly to thank women for nominating her to lead Zanu PF Women’s League.

During the tour, which turned out to be a succession of campaign rallies, Grace constantly attacked Mujuru with venom, accusing her of abuse of office, subversion, extortion, illicit diamond dealings, blackmail to get 10% equities in corporates and corruption. She also accused her of helping to create opposition political parties including, MDC-T and Mavambo/Dawn/Kusile, although its leader Simba Makoni said that was a “lie”.

“The person leading factions is the same person who accuses me of being involved in diamond deals, yet it is them that own a diamond mine. That person also moves around saying I want to acquire money using unscrupulous means when it is known that I started my businesses from scratch,” said Grace at a rally in Bindura last week in apparent reference to Mujuru.

However, as recent as October 4, Grace, who is patron of the Danhiko Paralympic Games, received US$10 000 from Mujuru during the games’ opening ceremony in Harare.

Social commentator Maxwell Saungweme described Grace as a “person of double-standards and a mistress of hypocrisy”.

He queried why she accepted “dirty money” from Mujuru whom she alleges to be corrupt.

Saungweme said: “She (Grace) cannot portray a picture of moral uprightness and label Mujuru as corrupt when everyone knows how she ended up dating Mugabe when (Mugabe’s late first wife) Sally was still alive and ailing.”

    Funny thing is, why should you seek to portray Mujuru as the victim and Grace as the aggressor when these are but two horrns of the same goat? Whichever faction any of these people come from, they collectively ruined this country through corruption, nepotism, incompetence and populist policies.

      You are right bro Mujuru is guilty as charged why should we symphathise with her both these two have contributed to the poor state of the economy

    Ndazviiona, the point is, while Mujuru has indeed been part of the rot that ruined this country, she has not sort to label other players in Zanu p.f. as corrupt while claiming to be squeaky clean.

      Abbie, the VP should lead by example if he condones or rather participate in corruption then it becomes a free for all affair as no one is there to condemn the practice.She has once unsuccessfully tried to block the noble efforts of one of our own business icon Strive the econet founder from getting a licence because of her interest in telecel by then.If it was not for the late visionary leader -Joshua Nkomo -maybe econet will be non-existent meaning that the current workforce of the company will be jobless plus the loss of revenue by the tax collector.Pasi nembavha , phansi ngamasela.

    I can’t imagine how those who fought for the liberation of our country must feel listening to that woman speak and toss their leaders around? If I can feel so much anger never having seen the war front, how much more those who suffered in the Chimurenga? Just because she is the President’s wife she feels she can toss people around?
