Zimbabwe former First Lady Grace Mugabe will not leave the country after the burial of her husband, but will stay out at the Blue Roof home from where she will be running the family businesses as well as farming projects, Zimbabwe Voice quoted family spokesperson and nephew Leo Mugabe as saying on Tuesday.
The newspaper said “following the death on 6 September of her husband, former President Robert Mugabe, there were rumours that the former First Lady would relocate abroad for fear of arrests and harassment by her former political rivals”.
However, Leo Mugabe said Grace Mugabe was not going anywhere.
“She is a Zimbabwean and loves her country and she has nothing to fear or run away from,” Leo said on the sidelines of Mugabe’s body viewing in his home village of Kutama.
“The Former First Lady will be there at her Blue Roof home in Borrowdale Brooke running her family business and farming projects as usual.”
According to Zimbabwe Voice, President Emmerson Mnangagwa a few months ago announced that the former First Lady had ownership of multiple farms against the Government’s one man one farm policy.
“I know of a certain lady called Dr. Stop It who owns 16 farms,” the President said, referring to Grace Mugabe.
Zanu-PF youths have been eyeing the extra fifteen farms reportedly owned by the former First Family, Zimbabwe Voice added.
