40 000 SOLDIERS CAME FOR ME : GRACE

Former First Lady, Grace Mugabe has told ITV’s John Ray that 40 000 soldiers were sent to deal with her.

“Imagine. They sent 40 000 soldiers against a woman,’’ she tells me, he wrote “Am I really that dangerous?’’

She greets us and ushers us swiftly inside, and even serves us her home-made pizza.

Her husband, Mugabe rejects the accusation she tried to have Mnangagwa poisoned: “She would never do that, she is a Christian.’’

It makes me feel better about eating the pizza. This is the woman derided by many Zimbabweans as “Gucci Grace” for her expensive tastes and love of luxury.

Many too believe she became the power behind the throne — Mugabe’s heir apparent. That’s when the army moved in – and Mugabe and his wife were moved out.


Mugabe insists it was never his plan to install her as the next president.

“All that is rubbish,’’ he says.
