Harare - Amid a growing confusing discord trend within the ruling party hierarchy, the First Lady and Zanu PF Secretary for Women’s Affairs Dr Grace Mugabe has urged President Robert Mugabe to name his successor saying this has been the trend in other countries.

Addressing the Women’s league National Assembly meeting at the Zanu PF headquarters in Harare recently, Dr Mugabe said there is nothing wrong with Cde Mugabe naming his successor, adding that the move will enable all members to rally behind one candidate.

Using the biblical story of Adonija who organised a feast to crown himself because his father the king was sick, Amai Mugabe said the President has the right to be involved in naming his successor, saying the President’s word is final.

“Tell us who is your choice, which horse should we back. As for me, if you tell us the horse to back, we will rise in our numbers and openly support that horse. Why should your horse be concealed?” She asked at a rally in the capital, Harare. 

“You have the right to be part of the process and say who will take over the seat of power. Mark my words, he has the final say. Now I ask him in his presence,” said Mugabe's often vocal wife.

The Zanu PF Women’s League boss also took a swipe at those who have no respect for seniors in the party who are swaying other cadres using money from their foreign bases.

She strongly urged women to desist from factionalism and stick to the party principle of one centre of power. Earlier on, Amai Dr Mugabe highlighted several projects that the Women’s League has been working on that included the rehabilitation of the income generating projets to benefit women. 

Meanwhile, speaking on behalf of the Women’s League earlier, Cde Joyce Kasinamunda declared President Mugabe the Zanu PF presidential candidate for 2018 and that the First Lady should also remain Secretary for the Women’s League.

Cde Kasinamunda expressed gratitude to Amai for Command Agriculture and requested that the First Lady conducts interface rallies in the provinces to meet the women.

Notable figures who attended the women’s league assembly include Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, Saviour Kasukuwere and Ignatius Chombo. 

Possible successor, Sydney Sekeramayi, Kudzanai Chipanga, Kembo Mohadi and Dr Christopher Mushowe attended the gathering. - ZBC
