My wife Grace ‘is being harassed… she cries daily’, Mugabe tells AU

Published

Harare – Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe says his wife is being harassed and cries daily, three months after he was forced to step down in the wake of a military takeover, a newspaper reported Friday.

Mugabe told the African Union’s Moussa Faki Mahamat during a courtesy call he made to the Mugabes’ Harare mansion this week that he doesn’t feel safe.

‘Wife persecuted’

“They told you I was safe, but how can I be in this environment?,” Mugabe reportedly told Faki, who is chairperson of the AU commission.

“My wife is crying daily. They are persecuting her… What am I without my wife and family? We are not safe,” the Zimbabwe Independent quoted Mugabe as saying, citing “detailed notes” supplied by officials who attended the meeting.

Mugabe said his wife was being harassed over her PhD from the University of Zimbabwe. Last week UZ Vice Chancellor Levi Nyagura was arrested for alleged abuse of office for awarding her the degree in 2014. Critics say her thesis is nowhere near PhD standard.

‘Ruling through guns’

Mugabe reportedly insisted to Faki the PhD was genuine: “I used to see her here working hard day and night. I would assist her here and there, so how can someone wake up and claim she didn’t work for it? This is harassment.”

According to the leaked notes, Mugabe told Faki that Mnangagwa’s appointment as president was illegal, and appealed to the AU to help restore democracy in the country.

“We want you to assist to restore normalcy and democracy in the country and stop this thing of ruling through guns,” he reportedly said.

UK to deport at least 2 500 ‘illegal’ Zimbabweans

Published

on

Harare – Britain has reportedly announced its intention to deport at least 2 500 Zimbabweans living illegally in that country.

According to New Zimbabwe.com, British ambassador to Zimbabwe, Catriona Lang, recently told Zimbabwean Deputy President Kembo Mohadi that her government intended to deport illegal Zimbabweans in that country.

The announcement came as Theresa May said that her government was “determined to reduce the number of immigrants coming into the country by thousands”.

In his response, Mohadi said that the southern African country had no problem taking back its nationals but it needed to check them to ensure they were truly Zimbabweans.

“… We said we want to vet them before they leave the UK. We want to know whether or not they are Zimbabweans or if they are not fugitives who had run away from justice,” Mohadi was quoted as saying.

Britain was Zimbabwe’s former colonial ruler.

Around 20 000 British citizens lived in Zimbabwe while at least 112 000 Zimbabweans lived in Britain, according to an AFP report.

Britain provided around $114m in aid to Zimbabwe every year.

Relations between the two countries went rocky under ex-president Robert Mugabe, particularly over the controversial land reform programme.

Church elder sends her nude pics to church group

Published

on

MASVINGO- An elder and deacon with one of the largest indigenous churches in Mucheke in Masvingo is in trouble after she inadvertently sent several of her nude pictures to the church whatsapp group.

    Church leaders approached by The Mirror confirmed the incident but pleaded with the reporter not to mention the church’s name as this could damage its reputation. One of the sources said Mai Munemo who goes to the church in Sisk has since been demoted as a deacon.

    Sources also said that Mai Munemo is no longer coming to church which is in the Sisk area of Mucheke.
    Mai Munemo confirmed the incident when called by The Mirror for a comment but blamed a neighbour’s child for the mishap. She said her neighbour’s child plays games on the phone each time she takes the gadget for charging. She said the child must have sent the pictures by mistake.

    However what pokes holes into her explanation is that it was not just one picture but three of them where she exposed her private parts.

    In the first two pictures, she takes photographs of her bottom part with legs wide open and in the third she has a picture of her breasts and face.
    She was totally naked when the pictures which are obviously selfies were taken.

    “She is under discipline and she is no longer a deacon although she is not coming to Church. Several leaders from the Church questioned her and she just said yadeuka yadeuka, it seems she doesn’t care anymore,” said the source.
    “It was my neighbour’s who sent them. They are my pictures and I took them for fun,” said Mai Munemo who appeared shocked.
