Grace Mugabe as new President of Zimbabwe after Mugabe’s retirement


Zimbabwean first lady, Grace Mugabe has announced herself as the new
president to take over when her husband, Robert Mugabe finally steps
down due to his concerned health issues.
Robert Mugabe, is the world’s oldest and one of the longest serving Head
of State at 92 years old. Mugabe having ruled for over 30 years, was
reportedly advised to drop out of the 2018 election race by his medical
doctors, which possibly is the main reason he is forcing himself into

Speaking at a gathering over the weekend, Mashonaland West women’s
league chairperson, Angeline Muchemeyi revealed that Grace Mugabe who
has been the league secretary since 2014, told them that there is no
point for her fighting for a lesser position after several plans and
arrangements had been made with the ailing president to hand over the
role of the state affairs to her.

The First Lady said:

‘I’m the wife of the president, I’m the president already … I plan and
do everything with the president, what more do I want, for now the
position of the women boss is enough.’
