Mugabe is suffering – Grace

via Mugabe is suffering – Grace – NewsDay Zimbabwe November 23, 2015

President Robert Mugabe is a poor man living a modest life because he is carrying the burden of Zimbabweans seeking economic emancipation from the oppressive Westerners, First Lady Grace Mugabe has claimed.

BY STAFF REPORTER

Speaking at Mataga growth point in Mberengwa in the Midlands Province on Friday, she said it has been reported that her husband was rich and had lots of money, but he was “just a simple man, who was passionate about the suffering people of Zimbabwe”.

“Where have you seen a person who commits their life to suffering for other people? Mugabe has committed his life to his life to suffering and he is suffering for you,” she said.

“You hear people lying that Mugabe has money, lots of money and even when the land reform started, some white farmers thought they could come to me because they thought, since I was young, I could be bought, they offered me $10 million and I refused. I am prepared to suffer for the people of Zimbabwe.”

Despite painting pictures of a suffering President, the First family owns and runs the multi-million dollar dairy company, Gushungo Dairy.

Mugabe has also been reported in some media circles to be one of the richest African Presidents.

Former Zanu PF spokesperson, Rugare Gumbo said he did not know Mugabe and his family were suffering at all.

“I don’t know if they are suffering or rich, but you can judge for yourself from the opulence in which they are living and tell me if that is poverty,” he said.

MDC-T spokesperson, Obert Gutu said the claims by Grace were grossly false and insulting to the people of Zimbabwe because their extravagant and lavish lifestyle was well documented.

“The false claims by Grace are a gross insult for suffering people of Zimbabwe and for Grace to falsely claim that her family is poor when the first family lifestyle is well in tandem with the rich and famous . . . This unmitigated arrogance is not only offensive, but extremely insulting to the suffering people of Zimbabwe,” he said.

Grace further said people should not envy her for staying in State House adding it was a painful experience and had constantly been praying to God for strength to go on.

“It’s painful to stay at the State House, I tell you it is painful because everyone will be looking up to you and wanting to know what you are going to do next,” she said.

Grace told villagers she had flown to the venue in a presidential helicopter and while it was the air she could see huts dotted far from each other and wondered how people would reach the venue.

On Friday Grace told a rally she often skips meals in solidarity with starving Zimbabweans.

    He has dedicated himself to the suffering of people, and how they have suffered! He has worked tirelessly, stripping dignity, stealing, lying, cheating and bullying just so the people can suffer.

    Nasty disease-riddled, senile chimpanzee of a Zim president. Hope he hangs on well past 100. Zim deserves him and that skank of a wife.

    If Grace has nothing to talk about she should just keep quiet instead of insulting the intelligence of the populace.
    How can a suffering person afford to go to an overseas holiday for almost two months living in expensive hotels and dining in exclusive restaurants?
    How can a suffering person have their doctor overseas and each time they have a tingle in their eye they are off to the airport for some specialist attention?
    How can a suffering father throw a wedding for her daughter that costs more than $5 million in a country stinking with poverty?
    Suffering by your standards Grace?
    Mugabe has never cared for Zimbabwe, not even a minute and that’s why during during his 35 year tenure he has never bothered to build a single major hospital, a single power station because he simply doesn’t care. He is laughing at Zimbabwean people as he flies to France to sleep in the conference.

    True Mugabe is poor and suffering mentally because I guess he is struggling to bring to terms how he failed so dismally.
    1. At independence Zimbabwe was a promising democracy with the highest economic potential Southern Africa
    2. He was a most popular leader in the Southern Africa before Mandela came out of prison, and in Zimbabwe, all children used to sing his name all over, Sally was called Amai by all respectfully not this prostitute he got incited to due to old age.
    3. Zimbabwe dollar used to trade at par and above par to USD, and only lower marginally to pound, now the country does not even have its on currency
    4. The people used to wear work suits to work, in reputable companies like ZISCO Steel, Mhangura Mine BHP, Hippo Valley Estates, Mkwasine, Arda, Zesa, NRZ, Sheraton Hotel, Zeco, Turnal Mashaba Mine, Zishavane, Zimasco, Ashanti Gold, Bindura Nicle, Border Timbers, Kariba, Municipalities like Harare, Bulawayo City Councils, teachers were respectable professional etc, now all this companies and jobs are ghost titles and towns
    5. Zimbabwe was regarded bread basket of Africa or SADC, but now you import everything together with flower and maize meal, the new farmer is nowhere.
    6. The ZSE used to be a stock market, busy with brokers and financial advisers now it pariah profession.
    7. Vibrant banking system, but he put Gono and there was quasi fiscal operations which saw the dollar loosing value daily if not every moment like soap
    8. Freedom of expression evaporated
    9. Police respect translated to ZANU PF thugs
    10. Military was considered extremely one of the most disciplined and respected force, now they are guard dogs of Mugabe and Grace, bucking at each any everything.
    11. Each night, the Beit bridge border is awash with Zimbabwean woman crossing into SA to buy almost everything even sanitary wear and salt to resale home, where are companies like Unilever, and Merline.

    YES MUGABE IS POORLY MINDED. YOU ARE RIGHT GRACE

    Is there no end to the madness of this woman…here we are in exile in strange lands when we should be at home building our own country…and all because of that mad “husband” of hers who she now wants us to feel sorry for.
    Please. We all want him dead and buried and hopefully her lying right next to him…and the sooner the better.
    Some people say that he was once a good man but that is not true. He was always a psychopath who pretended for a time to be good and Godly.
