God does not like Mugabe's successors says Grace Mugabe

Zimbabwe's First Lady Grace Mugabe told a crowd that God was not convinced by the calibre of would-be successors of her husband President Robert Mugabe.

That's why he continued to lead the country at the age of 91, she said at a function in Binga, Matabeleland North province.

His party has already endorsed him to stand in the 2018 presidential elections, when he will be 94.

"Just ask yourself why God continues giving a 91-year-old strength to lead the country. Where have you ever seen a 91-year-old who can stand for two hours?" New Zimbabwe.com quoted the first lady as saying.

Grace's remarks came in the wake of factionalism which continue to rock the ruling Zanu-PF party, as many position themselves to succeed the veteran leader when he finally leaves office.

Grace (50) warned that those who were too keen to take up Mugabe's job should not forget ousted former vice president Joice Mujuru's demise "too quickly".



"This is what destroyed Mujuru. Do not be caught off-side. Tamba nevamwe zvakanaka (play safe)," Grace said.

Mujuru, Zimbabwe's first-ever female vice president, was fired last year over allegations of corruption and plotting to eliminate Mugabe.

Many of her allies in government were also fired and expelled from Zanu-PF.

Mujuru denied the allegations.

In remarks that seemed to be aimed at Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Grace said that acting as president in his absence did not mean one was heir apparent.

She added that there were some who had been canvassing for grassroots support since 2013.

Grace entered into mainstream politics last year after she was confirmed as the women's league boss in the ruling Zanu-PF politburo.
