Zimbabwe’s first lady Grace Mugabe claims President Robert Mugabe was once involved in a polygamous relationship.

Zimbabwe’s first Lady Grace Mugabe claims President Robert Mugabe was once involved in a polygamous relationship, according to media reports.

Zimbabwe’s Newsday newspaper claims Grace defended having an affair with the Zanu PF leader when his first wife Sally was still alive, saying she was customarily married to him.

Addressing party youths gathered at her orphanage in Mazowe district, Grace said she would never feel bad even if the media continued to vilify her marriage to Mugabe.

“It did not start today that a man marries two wives,” Grace said. “I will not feel bad about it. Let them write whatever they want.”

Grace, previously married to Stanley Goreraza, an Air Force pilot, officially married Mugabe in 1996.

Mugabe and Grace have three children — Bona, named after Mugabe’s mother, Robert Junior and Chatunga Bellarmine.

Bona was born when the late First Lady Sally was still alive but battling with a kidney problem.

Mugabe claimed in an interview with South African journalist Dali Tambo that Sally was aware of his relationship with his former secretary before she succumbed to kidney failure in 1992.

Grace said she had no regrets over her relationship with Mugabe, saying the Zanu PF leader was not unlike any other men, let alone a President, who has entered into a polygamous marriage.

“South African President Jacob Zuma has many wives. I admire him because he stands for what he wants,” Grace said.
