Grace Mugabe says VPs consult her, hints at 'takeover'

Zimbabwean First Lady Grace Mugabe could be pushing for power when her husband dies or retires, after she made claims that she works closely with President Robert Mugabe’s two deputies.

Harare - An alliance of Zimbabwean human rights groups says they fear a veteran rights activist has been abducted after being last seen weeks ago.

The Solidarity Peace Trust said on Tuesday that Paul Chizuze was last seen in his home city of Bulawayo on February 8 and has been officially listed as missing.

The activist, aged in his 50s, helped victims of political violence and searched for other missing activists for more than two decades, the group says in a statement.

It says he never gave up campaigning for justice and they fear "he may have been murdered, hijacked or abducted by parties unknown".

International rights groups accuse President Robert Mugabe's loyalists of harassing and abducting activists, some having disappeared without trace.
