Grace tears into Tsvangirai

HARARE - First Lady Grace Mugabe yesterday launched an unrestrained attack on Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai saying the MDC leader has no morals and is ugly.

She told a Zanu PF rally in Chiweshe in Mashonaland Central Province accompanied by her husband, that the 61-year-old MDC presidential candidate was a man of loose morals who did not deserve Zimbabweans’ vote.

“Vamwe vanhu vanofunga kuti kutonga kutora vakadzi vakawanda vachiramba, nhasi uyu mangwana uyu, vachienda navo kumaholidays, vachitorwa mapictures vari kumhiri nevakadzi. Kutonga kutereera zvido zvavanhu.

Ndizvo zvinoita baba vaMugabe (Some people think leadership is getting hitched to many women, today you hobnob with this one, tomorrow it’s another one, taking them overseas for holidays, getting photo opportunities. Leadership is about listening to the wishes of the people, that’s what President Mugabe does),” she said.

Tsvangirai and Elizabeth Macheka, 36, wed in September last year but did not sign the legal marriage register due to a legal challenge to their union by the PM’s ex-lover Locadia Karimatsenga.

The First Lady sunk to new lows, making bad taste jokes about Tsvangirai’s physical appearance, describing him as “heartless which has made him look ugly.”

“When vaMugabe first met him (Tsvangirai), he came back home shivering and I asked him, what had happened, have you been threatened? He said to me ‘handisati ndamboona kuipa kwakadayi munhu uyu wakaipa pachiso ne pamoyo. He is ugly, ugly both inside and (on) his face.

“I was once told by his close associates who work with him that one day he (Tsvangirai) looked into a mirror and he fled his face saying ndaona huma yakashata mumirror, iye anozvitiza ko isusu tozoitasei? Tinotiza kushata kwakwadaro tikaita stampede tikafa. That’s why tisingamude.”

Grace declared that the State House was a no-go area for anyone, adding Mugabe was there “full time and those wishing to remove him are dreaming”.

“Let it be known that today I am saying that there is no vacancy at State House,” she declared. “We are there full time,” she said to a rapturous applause from the crowd dominated by primary and secondary school children at Nzvimbo Secondary School.

“I know that you have confidence in your leader and he is the one whom you want to remain at State House,” she said.

The 47-year-old wife of the 89-year-old Zanu PF leader said Tsvangirai was not fit for State House.
Before Grace took to the podium, her husband had told the crowd that Tsvangirai’s campaign had failed to gain traction.

“Ndakaverenga mumapepa nhau kuti vanhu vakamutiza paakauya kuno, vanhu vanomutiza kuno nekuti akashata pachiso nepamoyo,” Mugabe said referring to Tsvangirai’s recent whirlwind tour of the province.

The octogenarian leader went down memory lane to appeal for votes from the Mazowe Central Constituency promising them “total empowerment” if he wins the July 31 poll.

Just like what happened during the manifesto launch in Harare last week, party youths scrambled for party T-shirts while Mugabe was addressing the crowd.

Police officers had to use sticks to quell the stampede which threatened to disturb Mugabe’s speech.

Those living in glass houses must not throw stones ,was Sally dead when you were snatching her husband and making children .What does that say about your character and moral standing

Nikita Gonogoto - 12 July 2013

Woman of double standards, how many man have you slept with apart from this old, old man. Who is ugly your old man and Tsvangirayi, kusekana kwanakamba.

Chabvondoka - 12 July 2013

At this rate of foolishness, Tsvangirai does not need to waste too much money and energy campaigning. The Mugabes are a good campaign team for him. Did anyone ever say the elections are a beauty contest? The Mugabes might think they are good-looking, but look at how much ugliness they have given to our country. As for morals, disGrace and husband should just shut up before we ask searching questions on practical details about their relationship while Sally was alive.

Dear Father ( Mr President Sir) I write this letter with heaviness of heart, seeing that you have ruled the beutifull country of Zimbabwe like a Tyranny. Now you are the loughing stock of the whole world and bringing the name of the whole Gushungo name in to disrepute. Apart from departing from the Ideals of the liberation struggle, you have also lost hunhu whedu as Zimbabweans. Pahunhu whedu hapana murume anoona kunaka kana kushata kwemumwe murume. What has happened Daddy? Remember an Election is not a beuty contest. On the other side Amainini vanoda kudzorwa baba, havazive zvekutaura pavanhu. Kana muchida kuti vataure udzai Jonathan Moyo avanyorere pasi nechishona uye nemavara makuru. Do you still remember that Mama (Sally) advised you to retire early especially soon after the Unity accord with PF_ Zapu. Eiiish that was going to be supper, anyway you refused. Look where you are now, in the ring against Morgan. This time hameno kuti muchabudirira here asi pakaoma, Morgan anodiwa nevanhu.

Ndikokuti kudii Grace. What are you saying Grace? Did you see the little boys and girls that were sitting in the front rows to boost the crowd? How can a 2nd lady talk like that? Pane vana here. Do you think the women and men were forced to come to the rally to hear about that. If that is part of your husband's manifesto, then his cause is lost. Tsangson ane chimoko chake. Tarisa paFacebook owone. Wasvodesa murume wako. Anyway he was asleep as you were talking. No wonder why people label you a DisGrace.

Mavara Azarevhu - 12 July 2013

Shame on the first family sinking so low to such stupid and idiotic street levels. Grace akahura na Robert when Sally was still alive...what can she tell us.

Habari - 12 July 2013

Honestly I used to think that Tsvangson was going to work extra hard this time around but alas he is being given it on a silver plate. Upombwe hunotaurwa nevakapombwa vasati vazowanana hungapururudzirwa here? Ko kushata kuneyi nekutonga nyika, vaChikowore inga maiva navo nhayi Gushungo makambonoudza Sally here, nekuti aka Grace kaive kasmall house then? The 1st family has sunk so low that one wonders if they have also joined the vapanduki crew. I am now believing bit-by-bit that sekuru could be the Baba Jukwa character vachirovera bhora musango nekuti: Hailume gore rino Zanu!!!!!!!!!!

Qawe laMaqawe - 12 July 2013

Gore riye VaMugabe vakati Tsvangirai akadashurwa. Nhasi vomuti munhu akaipa pachiso. I honestly think that no human being should denigrate the physical structure of another human being made by GOD in his own image. How is it that President is at liberty to call others all sorts of names but anybody who is critical of the President is arrested? People tend to sympathise with a person suffering injustice. Tsvangirai has suffered the worst political injustice of our century.

This cannot be the same family Dali swore by his father's grave. Sinking that low, how could one be that desperate.

Stop-a-Thief - 12 July 2013

Both Matibili and his wife Ambivalece have no diplomatic etiquette. The geriatric call Lindiwe Zulu a street woman. He called Rice from US a prostitute. Now his concubine jumps in insulting Tsvangirai. This is the dim wit who got 28% on one of her papers from some UK university. And her genes have trickled to her son Chatunga. All she is good for is giggling in front of cameras and embarassed the rather senile Mugabe. There is vacancy at state house and come August the 1st Achimwene and his brood will be vacating both properties. Talk of a glass house.....

Grace ngaasakanganwa zvazuro nehope. The following link tells of a story how http://nehandaradio.com/2012/09/11/the-love-scandals-that-rocked-zanu-pf-part-2/ President Robert Mugabe 'snatched' his current wife Grace Mugabe from under the nose of then Air of Zimbabwe (intelligence officer) and husband Stanley Goreraza. The current First Lady then known as Grace Marufu worked as Mugabe's secretary before she became his mistress while still married to Goreraza. Prime Minister Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe departs Andrews Air Force Base after a state visit to the United States (26 September 1983). At the time Mugabe's first wife Sally Mugabe was battling a chronic kidney ailment while Mugabe was having an affair with Grace. The affair resulted in two children, Bona, named after Mugabe's mother, and Robert Peter, Jr. Sally was never able to have any children with Mugabe after their only son, Michael Nhamodzenyika Mugabe, born 27 September 1963, died on the 26th of December 1966 from cerebral malaria in Ghana where Sally was working. Sarah Francesca (Hayfron) Mugabe, popularly referred to as Sally Mugabe, was Mugabe's wife until her death in 1992. On the 17th of August 1996, Mugabe married his former secretary, Grace Marufu, 41 years his junior, with whom he already had two children while she was married to Goreraza. Bona Mugabe is currently 23 years old, meaning she was born in or around 1989, some three years before Sally Mugabe died. Robert Jnr, is 19 this year, meaning he was born in or around 1993, a few months after the death of Sally in 1992.

Respect Respect. Seniors. Take a leaf from the page of Madiba Mandela and his wife Gracia. Please. Some you win some you lose do it gracefully. We all have skeletons in our closets. If you look for something not meant to be looked for you will find it, and it will not be nice. SO!

Freedom Kujenga - 13 July 2013

Grace Mugabe, our celebrated prostitute is an empty tin. That explains why chimwana chacho Chatunga chiri chidofo. How can a son born to such an empty vessel have any brains at all. Wakanganwa Grace kuti wakatiza murume nokuda mari and you fled with a geriatric old enough to be your grandfather. That's classic prostitution. Shame on you Grace, |chihure chemakoko.

Let it be known that today I am saying that there is no vacancy at State House,” she declared. “We are there full time,” she said to a rapturous applause from the crowd dominated by primary and secondary school children at Nzvimbo Secondary School. Is it about State House or Regime Change? These guys can stay there as long as they want that is if MDC-T wins the election. We are not worried abour who occupies the state house but who will lead this country into a new dispensation be it MDC-T , MDC-M, ZANU PF , PF ZAPU, MAVAMBO/KUSILE or Egypt Dzinemunhenzva(kikikikiki).Zimbabwe is not a dynasty like Britain, France, Spain or Japan.It is a Republic. So Grace you can have your State House and Zimbabweans can have their Zimbabwe.
