Zimbabwe Chiefs Council president Chief Fortune Charumbira said the decision by Robert Mugabe to resign as President of Zimbabwe was commendable.
He also said that Mugabe had fallen from grace because he failed to reign in his wife Grace Mugabe. Said Charumbira:
What he has done is commendable and was the honourable thing to do.It is unfortunate that he had to leave this way given his illustrious history but he was failing to rein in his wife who had taken a habit of humiliating grown-up men in public. That is unacceptable in our culture. We hope that the next President is going to restore that dignity to the country and its leadership that had been lost because of the President Mugabe’s wife.
