Mugabe Wife Given Top Zanu-PF PostAfrican News Saturday, December 6th, 2014
Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has been re-appointed as leader of the ruling party, while his wife Grace has been given a top position in the party.
Grace Mugabe’s promotion to head of Zanu-PF’s women’s wing puts her in a good position to succeed her husband in the future, analysts say.
The first lady has criticised political rivals, including Vice-President Joyce Mujuru, in recent months.
Mr Mugabe, 90, is due to stand for election again in 2018.
Speaking at Zanu-PF’s congress, Mr Mugabe thanked thousands of supporters for choosing him as party leader.
“I know where I come from… I am not greater than the people who gave birth to me,” Mr Mugabe, who has led Zimbabwe since 1980, said.
