PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe says his wife Grace was in South African to seek treatment over an ankle injury she sustained during a “freak” road accident involving the Presidential limousine last month.
“I am alone not that I am not married,” President Mugabe said while officiating at the Zimbabwe National Defence University on Friday.
“She is still in pain from the time she got injured by a car that is why she is not here.”
President Mugabe repeated the claims during his Matebeleland South youth interface rally in Gwanda on Saturday.
The garrulous First Lady was not there to whip up hate against party rival, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa as has been the case with the first couple’s recent rallies.
Grace’s leg was reportedly injured as she was about to enter President Mugabe’s chauffer driven limousine when the first family was arriving from Singapore at the Harare International airport.
