Grace attacks on Mujuru hit new lows

HARARE - The quality of First Lady Grace Mugabe’s so-called “Meet the People” rallies plumbed new depths yesterday with one of her closest lieutenants and secretary for security in the Women’s League, Shuvai Mahofa, pilloring Vice President Joice Mujuru by saying “Pasi naJoice nembwa dzake (Down with Joice and her dogs)”.

As the controversial Mahofa shouted the crass and tasteless slogan, President Robert Mugabe’s wife and the other bigwigs at the high table just smirked.

And when it was the turn of Grace to address the cross-border vendors that she had called to her Mazowe business hub, she took her now familiar attacks on Mujuru a notch higher, saying her husband could appoint anyone, either male or female, as vice president, giving steam to growing perceptions that Mugabe could reward Justice minister Emmerson Mnangagwa with the position.

“After 34 years in government you go to newspapers to say I am being removed unconstitutionally. You should read the constitution of party and country well and understand before you go,” Grace said, adding that Mujuru had only been appointed to her current position on account of being a woman.

“...the constitution says ‘at his leisure’ he appoints whoever he sees fit to be his second-in-command (and) there is nowhere it says male or female should be appointed as vice president or that if you are elected in the party you automatically become the country’s VP.

“...we have a right to say the road you are walking on does not tally with what the nation expects, so leave…,” Grace said.

“Because sometimes the one who appointed wants you out but does not want to embarrass you.  He would just be waiting for you to write and say I have resigned but if you are hard-headed tomorrow you will be ousted like the others…. Saka ndiri kuti munhu ngaadzokere kuDotito (Go back to Dotito). If you do that we will respect you and sit down and talk,” she added.

Grace also told the crowd that Mujuru should not wear skimpy clothes because of the cellulite on her body.

“Today there were media reports saying that I said I have a recording of Mai Mujuru being intimate with a man. What I said is she should not wear mini-skirts in front of young people, I said so because it is her culture.

“What she was wearing in the video was inappropriate considering she was in her lounge with a young man.  Ende munhu ane muviri muhombe (She has a big body).

“Even in real life, I have seen her like that. Even women in Parliament came to me complaining saying we educated her on how to dress. I said let her but not before children.  Chero isu tine miviri akanaka handife ndakapfeka mini pavana,” she added.

At the emotive rally, outgoing Women’s League boss Oppah Muchinguri openly sang the song, “Hokoyo Mujuru ndanga ndakarara ndamuka Mujuru hokoyo,” a belligerent song that loosely translated says “Beware Mujuru. I was asleep but now I’m awake, beware Mujuru”.

Grace revealed that she was once a cross-border trader and that she had risen from selling small items at flea markets to her current position.

She said cross border traders should accept slow growth instead of behaving like those who were seeking quick ascendancy in life.

“Too much speed as once referred to by Mai Muchinguri as supersonic speed, it is dangerous. Inokukudubutsa. We said too much speed saka tinoda kumbokudimburirai speed iyoyo.”

The First Lady accused Mujuru of consulting traditional healers, adding that the Women’s League had vowed to express a vote of no confidence on her this coming Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Ray Kaukonde — the deposed Zanu PF Mashonaland East provincial chairperson — has vehemently denied the 49 year-old businesswoman’s accusations that he had changed names and forged certificates.

“My mother died when I was young. I was brought up by my aunt. Is that a crime? I have never changed my name, why should I do that?” he said in an interview with the Daily News from his farm.

“My father is very much alive… I went to war at a very young age. I did not have any certificates to forge. Can you ask Zimsec or Cambridge to produce the forged papers?” Kaukonde added.

Dear Grace Marufu People fear you and show deep adoration for you not because you deserve that or you are meant for that.Its because of the man you share bed with called Robert Mugabe or (more appropriately Matibiri) Matibiri is 91 years old and its an irrefutable fact that Matibiri by this time next year he will not be alive,because nature will prevail.Uri mwanana Grace dzikama kuti hloko nekuti vaunotamba navo vachati vapedza kukushandisa kutora zvigaro.Vagoshandisa nyama yako zvakare kana Matibili aenda.Vachakuchinjanisa kumbokunzwa semunhu wairarwa naMatibili Mwari wavo.Vadaro vachanzwa kuti haaa hapana zviripo irubbish yega yega iyo.Vokukanda kudurunhuru.Uyu Joyce waunodai kuti pwetere pwetere uchinyengerwa naOppah hatidi unozoita hwaTsoko ainyenga Dhongi rikazoti roda kunyengawo Tsoko akachema achiti "Aiwa kwangu kudoko!"

Mujuru you must not go to congress as you will be put on the braai and barbecued to a crisp. This is now your legacy. Your best option is to resign and ask for a job polishing the shoes of the Hon. Comrade Grace Mugabe - president to be and her political prostitute Jonathan Moyo.

basa - 19 November 2014

I am convinced that the First Lady is not only a puppet of Jonathan Moyo and Mnangagwa but a psychiatric patient. This is caused by the avenging spirit of Nehanda's medium spirit Charwe. Mazowe which should be pronounced as Manzou was supposed to be handed to Nehanda not to the Mugabe Family let alone Grace who has no history of how Nehanda lost his land to white. Mujuru and those who are persecuted with her are the people Nehanda recognises. Grace should be taken to Engutsheni Psychiatric ward.

Jonathiel Moyowaonda - 19 November 2014

Ironic how Grace is preaching to us about culture and mini skirts. You know what's also uncouth in our culture Grace? Sleeping with a married man and cheating on your husband. This typist, husband snatching, PhD pludering mongrel has a short memory.

The problem with Grace is that she has a very low IQ to such an extend that she no ability to identify her worst enemies. Grace ibenzi ranhonga pito. Her enemies that are close to her know this hence they are cheering her up so she displays her utter stupidity in public.

Good job Grace. Let Mujuru come out swinging. We want to hear her defense. In a nutshell let Zanu destroy itself.

Grace hold your big mouth please. The same Mai Mujuru whom you are persecuting today wil be the one roasting you tomorrow and it will be a sad thing to wittness. Go through your history books and try to understand what took place in other parts of the world to people who were behaving the same way as yourself. This is Politics. You yourself you are just an ordinary person who grabbed this position by mere chance,so you are now abusing that position. Musa ita se Inda inokanganwa kuti vudzi Richard gerwa yoshaya pekuzogara

Fellow hurting POZ, The First Lady is just a spokesperson for Cde RGM. Sad that Cde TRNM will be no more VP or ZPF member before the Congress . The Law of Reciprocity always holds true. Romans 8 vs 28

Zvenyika Mapisa - 19 November 2014

From a cross boarder trader to a PHD holding Women's league boss Philanthropist with a string of other careers in between like Secretarial and farming, Grace sure has been around. Isn't is just amazing how she seems to fit in with just about everybody she addresses. In Matabeleland, she told those gathered that she was a Zulu who unbelieavably can not utter one sentence in Ndebele. Don't you just wish we were all as dull as you are Grace?

AMAZING GRACE INDEED. This is the beginning of the end of Zanu and the people as it is said to be the peoples' movement. Where are the Big Mouths that used to torment the antiZanu. We need to ear from you Big Mouths. Grace right now is The Hand That Rocked The Cradle....and is indeed rocking the cradle right now....All this is Gods intervention. I am glad that we are alive to see the fall of Zanu..At Last.

Its sad that lame people like these are the custodians of our country's institutions at the moment, people with no respect for human dignity whatsoever. How dare they treat one of theirs like this never mind the Vice President of the country, but if you ske me i am not even surprised, the same goes for whoever dares challenge Mugabe Ndabaningi Sithole and Morgan Tsvangirai come to mind. i am not a Zanu Pf sopporter and everyday they vindicate me. Let me also say Joice has herselfe to blame to an extent for she has been the number two for so long and despite our cries she stood by Mugabe, i guess he who dines with the devil will be eaten too. Iam an MDC supported and iam proud of it but Zanu PF is unbelievable indeed.

Benito - 20 November 2014

Jonathan Moyo once suggested that Zanu PF can only be destroyed from within. This is no longer a hollow analysis but prophetic wisdom. One thing Zimbabweans never imagined though, is that the internal destruction or destabilisation would be championed by President Mugabe's own wife.
