Former First Lady, Grace Mugabe has revealed why she and her husband decided to reconcile with Mnangagwa “for the good of the country”.

Grace said after the death of her mother last week, Mnangagwa wrote her a letter, fondly calling her his mother.

“The president wrote a letter to me and showed his love, he said I am his mother and he will never let me down. I was touched by his kindness. I tell you today, he is a human being just like you and me here.”

“Yes, what happened indeed happened. We must move on. We must learn to forgive each other. I have forgiven them. If the person who was affected most can forgive, how about you?

“I am talking to those who are busy attacking President Mnangagwa, let us move on and support him. Let us pray for him. I said we must pray for him, yes I meant it. Bishops here, let us pray for our leaders.”

Grace was at the forefront of calls to expel Mnangagwa from Zanu PF last year for allegedly plotting against Mugabe before the tables were turned against the Mugabes.

“I can tell you that we are safe under the leadership of President Mnangagwa. Yes, what happened is past, let us move on. Don’t be left behind when others are moving on. I hope those who are attacking the current leadership are hearing me.

“I can tell you here that every week Cde Mnangagwa sends people to our home to ask us what we want and how we are. He does so out of love, be assured we are taken care of.”
