Zimbabwean MP Temba Mliswa says Robert Mugabe’s legacy was destroyed by his wife, Grace.
Mugabe was asked to resign after the military took over control of Zimbabwe in last week. The coup that is not a coup, was said to be the result of Mugabe axing his wife’s opponent’s, which included Deputy President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Mugabe fired Mnangagwa after his supporters reportedly booed Grace at a rally.
Now, Zimbabwean MP Temba Mliswa commented that Mugabe’s downfall was his wife, Grace.
Mliswa said Mugabe was taken advantage of because of his age.
Briefly.co.za learned from eNCA that Temba said: “Robert Mugabe’s legacy has been destroyed by his wife. He’s old, he’s aging and they’ve taken advantage of him. Whatever he’s done for our people he’s given us confidence to be proud to be black. With Emmerson Mnangagwa coming in, he is a man we can trust. We never knew Emmerson, but he was his special assistance in the struggle," he said.
Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe resigned on Tuesday, bringing to an end 37 years in power which he began as a hero of the struggle against white rule and ended as the man blamed for reducing his country to despotism and economic misery.
