Mugabe's wife Grace completes PhD in 3 months
Mugabe's wife Grace completes PhD in 3 months

Soon after being shoe-horned into the top ranks of Zimbabwe's ruling party, the wife of ageing leader Robert Mugabe has gained a PhD in orphanages, seen as the latest sign that she may be destined for the high office.

Cape Town – Botswana President Ian Khama’s comments about Zimbabwe’s 31 July disputed elections are aimed at getting the EU to extend its “illegal sanctions” on Zimbabwe, a government official has reportedly said.

The European Union is scheduled to meet next month to decide whether or not to lift sanctions that were imposed against Zimbabwe in 2002.

Khama was recently quoted as saying his country would no longer participate in future SADC and African Union election observer missions after he noted what he said were irregularities in Zimbabwe’s last year elections.

Khama criticised both the African Union and SADC for not pointing out the irregularities in the harmonised polls and accused the blocs of endorsing the elections even though they were not fair.

According to the Herald, Minister of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo, said Khama was seeking the attention of the EU.

Moyo said it was not surprising that the usual voices that have traditionally supported sanctions against Zimbabwean “about this time of the year since 2003 are at it again ahead of the February 19 EU meetings in Brussels”.

He said the elections that Khama continued to talk about were history to progressive Zimbabweans who spoke in their “overwhelming numbers" in favour of President Robert Mugabe and Zanu-PF.
