President Mugabe’s wife asks him to name his successor


President Mugabe’s wife, Grace Mugabe has Thursday, urged her husband to name his successor in order to end the crisis rocking the future leadership of the ruling ZANU-PF party.

The President who is currently 93, has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980 but has insisted that his party, ZANU-PF will choose a preferred successor not him.

Grace, who is ZANU-PF Secretary for Women’s Affairs, in a meeting with the women’s wing in Harare, gave a contradictory opinion, challenging him to name his successor.

Mugabe himself, however, did not speak at the meeting.

Mrs Mugade said that this is the trend in other countries, and will enable all members of the party to rally behind one candidate.

She cited the biblical story of Adonija who organised a feast to crown himself because his father the king was sick.

She said the President’s word is final, and he has a right to be involved in the naming of his successor.

She also took a dig at people she claimed had “no respect for seniors in the party.”

The election is proposed to take place July 21, 2018, and, if Robert Mugabe, who is the Presidential candidate for the election wins, he will be 99 years if he completes the five-year term.
