Zimbabwe’s First Lady To Get Wheelchair For Mugabe To Continue Governing

Written by Didi Adams

Zimbabwe’s first lady says she plans to get a “special” wheelchair for her 91-year-old husband so can continue to rule.

Speaking at a political rally on Saturday, Grace Mugabe told supporters that she would get a wheelchair for her husband, President Robert Mugabe, to use.

In the televised speech, Mugabe, 50, vowed to push the wheelchair herself, taking a swipe at critics who say her husband is too old to govern.

Mugabe told supporters she would ensure her husband remains in power as long as he can still speak.
