PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa Wednesday finally met former First Lady Grace Mugabe after the former Zanu PF allies’ bitter relations escalated with the November 2017 ouster of the now late former State leader Robert Mugabe in a military assisted coup.
Since Mugabe’s overthrow, Mnangagwa and Mugabe communicated through emissaries and there has been no known occasion that the Mugabes have met the incumbent.
During the period leading up to last year’s elections, Mugabe claimed harrassment by Mnangagwa and vowed never to vote “my tormenters”.
Before Mugabe’s ouster, Grace staged rallies across the country denouncing and labelling Mnangagwa a traitor.
There was no mistaking the tensions between the two when they were finally united by Mugabe’s dead body at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport Wednesday.
