A Roman Catholic priest who brokered Robert Mugabe’s resignation last month says the former president’s wife Grace Mugabe will face justice in the future.
“I’m sure that people would do justice to her,” was the priest’s brief response in an interview with the magazine when asked what would happen to the former first lady after her husband dies.
Deeply unpopular Grace was aligned to a faction of young ambitious officials vying to take over control of Zanu-PF after Mugabe. She got Emmerson Mnangagwa sacked as vice president last month. The move triggered a backlash from the military, who seized control of the party and forced Mugabe to resign.
Although Grace Mugabe appears to have received immunity under a deal brokered partly by Mukonori last month, the same can’t be said for her main political allies. Most have been arrested and charged with criminal offences, or have fled the country.
Grace Mugabe is understood to have left Zimbabwe last week in the company of her husband and other family members for their annual family holiday in Singapore. It is not clear when they will return to Zimbabwe.
