Oppah Muchinguri speaks on Grace’s role in Mugabe’s downfall

ddressing a provincial co-ordinating committee (PCC) meeting at Mutare Polytechnic yesterday, Zanu-PF Secretary for Transport and Welfare Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri said that Robert Mugabe plotted his own downffall by allowing his wife Grace Mugabe to play an active role in politics.

Said Muchinguri-Kashiri:

By allowing his wife to have an active role in politics, Cde Mugabe plotted his own downfall. I think it was a lesson to all that we should not allow our spouses to dictate the pace in politics. It is a shame that some churches were allowed to be used to preach the hate gospel at their gatherings. A person with a degree will not act that way.

On why she had given Grace her post as the Secretary for Women Affairs, Muchinguri-Kashiri said she had been pressured to do so by a lot of people. Said Muchinguri-Kashiri:

Some people are asking why I relinquished my position to Grace Mugabe in the first place, but I want the truth to be known now. I received so many visitors in 2013 ahead of our last Congress asking me to consider relinquishing my post for Mrs Mugabe. Some of them literally knelt before me. After serious consideration, I relinquished the post because the pressure was just too much and little did we know that we were creating problems for the party. This was a well-orchestrated move by the G40 because they knew that if Grace Mugabe becomes part of their cabal, it was easy to deal with Cde Mugabe because of his advanced age.

  1. Married in 1996
    Graces influence on political decisions is now evident the graft she took from land reforms in particular and then indigenisation program in general bear witness to her influence
    Remember this every penny Grace Mugabe Robert Mugabe and corrupt politicians took was food from. The table if the children of Zimbabwe and denial of education to to the children of Zimbabwe

  2. When I was entering Botswana sometime at the border it was written and i quote ” everywhere I go I am not wanted why the problem is Mugabe ” . Not because I am Zimbabwean no but because my president was Mugabe meaning that the world just ddnt like him to an extent that if you just put even a stick or a donkey in his position they will go for that anything . Here comes the greatest confusion in the land of zimbabwe Mugabe calls for a rally many people were attending preaching the same gospel of calling him a life long leader this was stunning the world . Even when people were left to find their way back home they went back groaning and disappointed they still sing the same song Mugabe is our life president . Who started the singing the chorus Mugabe for life it was the top leadership followed by foot soldiers the people of zimbabwe . Who do we blame Mugabe Grace or Opah or the masses of zimbabwe ? Food for thought Mugabe was surrounded by blinkered people like Opah who couldn’t tell him the truth . If she was like Joyce Mujuru we could have seen her chased away showing that she stood for the truth and told Mugabe that you are no longer wanted Grace dd a wonderful job because she became the catalyst of Mugabe ‘s exit .
