Mu­gabe’ s wife in suc­ces­sion bid

The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - WORLD NEWS -

Zim­bab­wean pres­i­dent Robert Mu­gabe’s wife Grace has po­si­tioned her­self as his pos­si­ble suc­ces­sor by say­ing that one of the rul­ing Zanu-PF party’s two vice-pres­i­dents should be a woman.

Grace Mu­gabe, who once said the 93-year-old leader should run “as a corpse” in the 2018 elec­tions if he dies be­fore the vote, has in­jected ex­tra in­trigue into a suc­ces­sion de­bate which has ex­posed fight­ing within Zanu-PF and a wider sense of un­cer­tainty in a coun­try with de­bil­i­tat­ing eco­nomic prob­lems.
