Grace picks on Daily News again

HARARE - Grace Mugabe threw yet another salvo at the Daily News, sensationally accusing the paper of twisting facts and insulting her.

The president’s wife told hundreds of cross-border traders at her Mazowe business hub that Zimbabwe’s leading daily — which was violently and unjustly shut down by her husband’s government in September 2003 — of waging a war against the ruling elite and the First Family.

Grace, a political novice who has been thrown into the deep end of Zanu PF fights, accused the private press of writing negatively about her family and has chillingly warned that the day of confession is reckoning for the journalists.

“Right now these papers, I was telling them yesterday, that go and lie, what is good is there are cameras capturing this speech and will broadcast it as it is.

“What I would have said, I say without fear or favour. What I say is not just to libel someone,” she said.

The Women’s League boss designate added that the privately-owned papers are inherently biased against Zanu PF.

Grace said she is not happy with the contents of the widely-read newspaper.

“Our Zanu PF issues, we do not have them communicated through Daily News or Newsday. We know they are biased.

“We do not want those reports they feed us with because they insult us and lie, izvezvi they twist facts, that is a known fact,” she gushed.

Grace hates the Daily News and Newsday because they do not report what she wants them to report on. The Herald and Sunday Mail are all controlled by her husband through Charamba and Jonathan. They do not involve themselves in serious investigatve journalism because they will be fired or they will disappear. Newsday and Daily News report issues as they are hence Grace is not comfortable with these papers lest they report about her financial transactions which are not above board and her real or perceived love relationships with those who have died accidentally or forced into exile. One day the truth will come out not through the herald or Sunday Mail but these papers that Grace detest.

Couldn't someone help this poor lady to know how to deal with the media and how to handle herself in politics? She is utterly reckless she is doing more harm to herself than to others. In the last few weeks she has done more damage to ZPF than the whole of ZPF politicians put together for 34 years. She really needs serious help in a multifacetted way because she has no clue how to handle power. I suspect she is bent on becoming Vice President soonest when she knows that she did not, until recently, have even a ZPF card.

Zanu PF gangsters are allergic to the truth. They hate being found out and exposed as thieves and liars. The Daily News should ask Police Commissioner Augustine Chihuri and his "moral" and wealthy comrade Canaan Mugumira for "protection". Watch out for the big bang soon afterwards. The EMPEROR has got no chance of setting up his delusional dynasty. He should be thinking about who will have the silver shaft after he croaks.

The first lady's level of intelligence is very low. Idofo and you can see it from the way and how she talks while addressing her foolish mobs. It's so sad the whole world is seeing this disgusting nonsense.She is a dummy and cannot even act the script given by her equally dumb husband.It's only good the idiots are mauling each other. What a shame!!!!!

In fact she will spend 4 hours talking senseless things, and when you try to gather what exactly she said you find nothing meaningful. 4 hours of utter nonsense.

College students went to Mazowe to listen to Dr Grace lecturing them on GOSSIPING and after the lecture some of them were ready to shade blood for the first lady. Were these university students or some school dropouts?????

It is very easy to gauge one's Intelligence quotient just from listening to their speech and watching the body language as they speak. Grace is an interesting case study because she is a shining example of how someone less blessed in the brain behaves like. The more she speaks at these rallies, the more she embarrasses herself and her backers, we are left with no choice but to enjoy the free for all show from the terraces, we welcome you Cde Rugare Gumbo.

@dr know; 'one's intelligence quotient' (popularly known as IQ) unofanira kunge uri dr wechirungu iwe. are you in this case referring to moral quotient, social quotient or intelligence quotient?

@ taurai. I can not make heads or tails of what you're trying to say. My advice to you is for you to just say out your own opinion just as I have said mine. You might find life to be more simple for you then.
