Grace Mugabe Faces Imminent Arrest Over Disappearance of Diamonds In Vaults

FORMER first lady Grace Mugabe could soon be arrested over an array of corruption-related allegations as woes mount for the ex-Zanu PF women’s league boss, it has been reported.

According to the Standard, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption commissioner responsible for investigations, Goodson Nguni said she faces arrest over the disappearance of diamonds in vaults when government ordered diamond mining companies in Chiadzwa to suddenly stop operating to pave way for the establishment of Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Mining Company.

Also, her children, Robert, Chatunga and Russel Goreraza, according to insiders, face arrest for gold smuggling, murder, extortion among other crimes that are related to abuse of power and state machinery.

Joice Mujuru Wedding Claims Prompts Party To Speak

Former Vice President and National People’s Party (NPP) leader Joice Mujuru, Sunday woke up to a fresh fight after social media went into meltdown with pictures of her look-a-like apparently walking down the aisle.

 

The images showed a beaming “Mujuru” having tied the knot with one Tobias Machewa. But, in a statement, NPP secretary general, Gift Nyandoro, said it was a case of mistaken identity or mischief.

“National People’s Party dismisses the mischievous social media post which suggests that Dr JTR Mujuru tied the knot as an act of misguided thinking and a deliberate ploy to create ill-conceived controversy around the good standing of her name.

“Clearly the person who made the posting is simply abusing the similarity of looks of Mother Zimbabwe to that of the lady depicted therein,” Nyandoro said.
Nyandoro then categorically stated that Mujuru had not been involved in any nuptials.

“Dr JTR Mujuru did not tie the knot with anyone and she is not associated with the couple appearing in the post in anyway,” Nyandoro said adding “NPP, however, wishes the couple depicted in the post the best of marriage blessings if indeed it is real that the tying of the knot ever happened”.

The NPP leader lost her husband, decorated liberation war fighter and former army general Solomon Mujuru, in a freak fire at his Ruzambo farm in August 2011.

Gender activist and MDC MP Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga last year urged Mujuru to date without shame if she so chooses. Mujuru did not respond.-Newzim

 

‘Grace Mugabe Has Been Holed Up At Harare Mansion Since November, Can Only Travel To Mazowe Under Army Escort ‘

Mystery surrounds the whereabouts of the former first Lady Grace Mugabe as the Standard today reported that she has been holed up at her “Blue Roof “ mansion all along.

Reports in December said that she had accompanied her husband to Malaysia on his way to Singapore for medical check-up.

When she did not show up in a photo of former president Robert Mugabe leaving the Gleneagles Hospital in Singapore, there was speculation that she had remained behind with her daughter Bona in Malaysia.

Today, the Standard reported that she never left the country at all.

“Since the ouster of Robert Mugabe in November, Grace has been holed up at her Blue Roof mansion in Borrowdale Brooke amid reports that authorities blocked her from travelling outside the country,” the paper reported.

“Grace was reportedly only being allowed to travel to her Mazowe business empire, but under escort.”

When the military took over on 15 November, there were reports that Grace Mugabe has fled to Namibia but it turned out that she had never left the country and was at her Blue Roof mansion.

The Standard said that the former first lady was likely to be arrested over the awarding of her PhD degree which the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption  Commission is currently investigating.

The paper said the former first lady was not covered by the immunity that is enjoyed by her husband.-Insider
