Zimbabwe: Grace Suffers Robert’s Fate

The Women’s League of the ruling Zanu-PF party has appointed Cde Monica Mutsvangwa as its new national secretary following the expulsion of Mrs Grace Mugabe last week. 

The League’s national secretary for information and publicity Cde Judith Ncube confirmed Mrs. Mutsvangwa appointment yesterday, saying the decision was made at an executive meeting held in Harare on Monday.

“The purpose of the meeting was to map the way forward following the expulsion of Mrs Mugabe and to implement the November 19 resolution by the Central Committee to reinstate fired Women’s League members to their original positions confirmed in 2014,” she said.

“We agreed that Cde Mutsvangwa will be our national secretary, replacing the former First Lady. Cde Angeline Chipato from Masvingo province is our new secretary for security, replacing the late Cde Shuvai Mahofa.”

Cde Ncube said the appointments were an effort to bring women together and build a strong Women’s League without causing rift among members.
