Former Public Service minister Prisca Mupfumira who was fired in the recent cabinet reshuffle reportedly attacked First Lady Grace Mugabe at the Zanu-PF Politburo meeting on Wednesday. Mupfumira accused Grace of being “ungrateful” and of turning her back on the people who had helped her to rise. Mupfumira is reported to have alleged that she is one of the people who convinced former women’s league boss and Water Affairs Minister Oppah Muchinguri to step down in order to allow Grace to take over.
Sources who spoke to New Zimbabwe said:

Mupfumira said Grace was ungrateful arguing she had worked hard to convince former women’s league boss and Water Affairs minister Oppah Muchinguri to relinquish her party position for her.
