Greedy tart, nasty dictator.



This couple of freaks need to be brought into line and punished for their ignorance towards their own people. This is an example on money and greed, and it needs to be stopped.

Grace Mugabe, wife of brutal Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe, likes to be called the “First Lady”, and she has nothing but contempt for the starving millions living in the nation that her husband trys to lead. She is dubbed First Shopper and Grabbing Grace by her people.

She is far more likely to be found stripping top European boutiques or lounging in five-star hotels than listening to the desperate needs of Zimbabwe’s hungry and homeless. What makes her frivolity so disturbing is that while she shops, ordinary Zimbabweans starve.

Last year Grace, 39, blew an estimated £75,000 in just TWO HOURS in Paris fashion houses. Her spending has reached such ridiculous levels many have accused her of being addicted to Gucci.

On her French jaunt, the former secretary had bought so much her aides needed an extra car to transport her goods to the airport.

Meanwhile, back in her home country inflation is now rife. It is cheaper to use a 1,000 Zimbabwean dollar note as toilet paper, than use it to purchase loo roll.Today, 4,000 Zimbabwean dollars are worth less than 50p.Two out of three of the country’s workers earn just £1 a day.

Her idiotic husband Robert Mugabe, 40 years older than she is, does not shy away from indulging his well-built wife. He even bought her a lavishly equipped DC-9, formerly owned by Playboy baron Hugh Hefner. The gift was to help with Grace’s shopping. With her own plane she was able to go on regular shopping jollies to New York, London and Rome. Maybe it will get a massive loss of cabin pressure at 35,000ft and she will die instantly.

Now that she has her own plane, other Air Zimbabwe passengers are spared the humiliation of being turfed off flights to accommodate their first lady and her numerous purchases. When she used to use the country’s commercial airline she would also order pilots to land at military air bases instead of the normal airport so she could avoid paying duty on her purchases. She would also supposidly take rather extensive detours, some costing the Government MILLIONS of $$$$$$$$$.

She and Mugabe now own at least SIX luxury properties. Grace laughed off outraged criticism after it was revealed that she used public funds to build an incredibly vulgar home called Gracelands in a plush Harare suburb.The finance came from a US aid programme intended to help the poor. Gracelands was then sold to the Mugabes’ pal Colonel Gaddafi for three times its original price. What the hell would Gaddafi want to do in Zimbabwe?

But the Mugabes have acquired another house nearby and are investing £10million in it. The mansion is stuffed full of imported Italian tiles, pillars, sunken baths and chandeliers.The master bedroom alone has as much floor space as an entire typical semi-detached home.She is overseeing the installation of a gym, sauna, library, bar and billiard room.

Among their other homes, the Mugabes also own a three-storey mansion overlooking a golf course.

Apart from her relentless greed, little else is known about Grace’s background. What is clear is that she started an affair with the President while she was a secretary at the State House in Harare. Mugabe married Grace bigamously as his first wife, Sally, was dying. Perhaps Grace is now given such freedom because she gave Mugabe what he most desired, a son, Robert junior. She has since borne him a daughter and a second son. Someone needs to castrate him, and sterilise her.

Grace, who was a student at her Catholic school, married Flight Lt Patrick Guririza in her teens. But once her affair with Mugabe began, her husband was conveniently posted to Beijing, and surprisingly has yet to return. At least while he was with Sally, Mugabe managed to publicly maintain his socialist credentials. But we now know he squandered many millions of pounds donated by Britain and the world to help in the redistribution of land to homeless blacks.

They need to be stopped.......... Zimbabwe was once a reasonable place. For the sake of the inhabitants of the country....... Mugabe (both of them) should be forced to live with some of the desolate and forgotten people of their land. Maybe just maybe they'd get what they really deserve.

“One day the Mugabes will pay heavily.”

He's married?!

Oh well, I guess Hitler had Eva Braun

Rob Good said...

HAHA..... Looks like she wears the pants in the relationship....

One day they will pay...of course they will, nothing lasts forever. But coming from a 3rd world ex-dictatorship myself, it takes too long for any dictator to be taken out by hook or by crook. By that time, the whole infrastructure is irreparable. You simply cannot reverse the damage like changing a bad spark plug. Natural justice eventually, but at what price, and how many innocent millions need to suffer needlessly before it happens? Send a hit squad, get him out of there FAST.

Rob Good said...

Yes indeed..... We have the Marcos's of Africa here, except worse. Who would be responsible for taking over the government?

andrewfalloon said...

unfortunately the whole hit man thing woud create a power vaccuum, a situation just as dangerous as the current crisis. the people of zimbabwe must be helped to overthrow the regime and then aided to set up a democracy

Its interesting that the majority of blacks in Zimbabwe old enough to remember, now look back nostalgically to the days of Ian Smith and Rhodesia.

Its also interesting that Ian Smith has often said that he feels safe walking down the main street of Harare on any day of the week, and has challenged Mugabe to do the same...unsurprisingly Mugabe has yet to accept the challenge...

Haha. Sounds like's got a lot in common with Kim Jong-Il who is the biggest purchaser of whiskey.

Rob Good said...

Seems that Grace has a taste for NZ Chardonay as well.....

TonyC said...

I can understand that power vacuum thing; once entrenched, tyranny makes any logical succession process very difficult. Political instability inevitably follows. Unfortunately no easy answers. Sometimes I wonder -- is a power vacuum better than a centralised, well-oiled wealth-sucking machine? My close friends, who are Indian South Africans, said Zim used to be a much better place to live than Sth Afr. What a waste.

Cathy Odgers said...

Wonder what kind of cellphone she uses?

Rob Good said...

Well Cathy, I am not sure if coverage in Zimbabwe would be that good, so maybe a satilite phone? If it is a normal cell phone, it would have to be a diamond encrusted virtue phone. As for power vaccume, he is getting on, so I hope Grace doesnt try to take the reigns when he has departed.

Cathy Odgers said...

Vertu?

Rob Good said...

www.vertu.com I know Freank the guy who makes these phones..He is also the vp and cheif designer for Nokia... I should have got a nokia over the moto I guess, but at $15,000 a Vertu is not for me as yet.

Cathy Odgers said...

Tell me something, what on earth makes a phone worth that much?

Rob Good said...

Well I guess I should re-phrase that. I am not planning om ever spending tht sort of money on a phone. It is all hand built...Somewhat like a rolex.
