Grace Mugabe beats househelp for accepting cash from ex president

Grace Mugabe, the wife of former Zimbabwean ruler Robert Mugabe, has been accused of attacking an employee at the family’s home with a shoe in 2017, lawyers said Tuesday.

She also faces an arrest warrant in neighbouring South Africa for her alleged assault with a power cable on a female model in Johannesburg in the same year.

Papers filed in Zimbabwe’s high court by lawyers for Shupikai Chiroodza allege that Mugabe used her fists and then her shoe in a prolonged attack that left Chiroodza’s face pouring blood.

Mugabe allegedly attacked Chiroodza after accusing her of ‘milking’ her husband because she had accepted a cash wedding gift from him, the papers say.

Chiroodza was a government employee working at the Mugabes’ private Blue Roof mansion in Harare when the alleged attack took place in March 2017, eight months before then-president Mugabe was forced from office.

‘I represent Chiroodza, who was part of the domestic staff at Blue Roof in a case of unlawful dismissal,’ lawyer Douglas Coltart said.

In her court papers demanding her job back, Chiroodza said Grace Mugabe punched her and ordered her to return an unspecified amount of money.

‘She started beating me with clenched fists shouting, “Who do you think you are? You are milking my husband behind my back”,’ Chiroodza said in her court application.

‘I was terrified. She removed her shoe and continued assaulting me with it and blood started gushing out of my forehead, mouth and nose. The assault continued for about 20 minutes.’

Chiroodza said she received a dismissal letter two months later.

100 bob couple celebrates son’s first birthday (Photos)

Remember the 100 bob couple, Wilson Mutura and his wife Ann Muhonja, who made headlines after spending a dollar on their wedding in 2017?

Well, the couple is still together and last year, they welcomed a bouncing baby boy

Wilson and Anne had planned to tie the knot in December 2016 but unfortunately, they didn’t have money.

Wilson said:

UNFORTUNATELY, WE COULD NOT RAISE MONEY FOR THE WEDDING. I AM EMPLOYED TO SELL APPLES IN A MKOKOTENI WHERE I’M PAID ON COMMISSION. IF I SELL APPLES WORTH SH1,000, I AM PAID SH100. HAVING NOT RAISED THE CASH, WE CANCELED THE WEDDING.

After their humble 100 bob wedding went viral, local corporates threw a multi-million shilling wedding for them.

It cost a total of Sh 3.5million. The two later enjoyed an all-expense paid honeymoon in Diani.

 

The 100 bob couple celebrated their son’s first birthday over the weekend and Wilson showered his offspring with love.

THIS IS SO WONDERFUL TO YOU MY LOVELY SON, I THANK GOD FOR YOU AND I DECREE AND DECLARE TO YOU THAT JOY AND HEATH SHALL EVER BE YOUR PORTION IN JESUS NAME YOU WILL LIVE A LONG LIFE TO ENJOY THE FRUITS OF GOD. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SON BLESSED PETER KNOW YOU’RE 1-YEAR-OLD MAY THE BLESSINGS OF GOD BE WITH YOU FOREVER.

Here are photos of the couple’s all grown son
