Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe has made her first public speech since returning from South Africa where she is being accused of assaulting model Gabriella Engels.
Grace quoted Jeremiah 1:5 to stating that God knew President Robert Mugabe since the he was in his mother’s womb. She also stated that those who insult the First Family will not be blessed. She also said that God chose Mugabe who only wanted to be a teacher. Said Grace:
We want unity….Midlands I hope you are not involved in factionalism like you have said today but what we hear is a different story . . . unless you’ are saying from this day forth we are united then I may be convinced. Those fanning factionalism should STOP IT! Listen to me because I am your mother . . . those who scold President Mugabe and his family will not be blessed.
VaMugabe vakaziva Mwari vasati vambove muchibereko cha Amai vavo . . . read Jeremiah 1 verse 5. Kutaura kwakashata hakuvake musha (Quarreling is not good for family unity). If you see bad things happening to you don’t then turn around and say President Mugabe has bewitched me. President Mugabe thought all he wanted to do was to be a teacher but God had a bigger job for him. That is why we respect you as the President because you tolerate everyone . . . God still wants President Mugabe to lead and he will tell us when he wants to step down. You must be loved by all provinces not just one if you want to lead Zimbabwe . . .
