Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party youth league has endorsed First lady Grace Mugabe as the right candidate to occupy the vice presidency ahead of the extraordinary congress set for December, a report said on Monday.
In the same vein, the party’s women league is reportedly pushing ahead with its support for Mrs. Mugabe‘s ascendancy, as tension within the ruling party intensifies ahead of an extraordinary congress in December.
According to the state-owned Herald newspaper, the youth league’s secretary general Kudzanai Chipanga said that Grace was the right candidate because her loyalty to President Robert Mugabe was unquestionable.
According to Daily News, the Zanu-PF women’s league, set to hold consultative meetings across the country’s 10 provinces ahead of the congress, said last week that it was not backing down on its support for the First Lady as one of President Robert Mugabe‘s deputies. – News24
