Written by Keren Mikva


Grace said she saw Mugabe as a father figure

While working as a typist in the state house, Grace said in interviews that she viewed the president as a father figure, and never expected anything to happen between them. In an interview about their first encounter, she said, “He came to me and started asking about my family…I looked at him as a father figure. I did not think he would at all look at me and say, ‘I like that girl.’ I least expected that.” Grace said she was hesitant about the relationship at first, especially given that both of them were already married.
