Zimbabweans are so stupid that even if President Robert Mugabe dies and they are asked to vote for his corpse, they will happily do so, his wife Grace says. Addressing hundreds of starving villagers force-marched to a rally in Buhera districts on Friday, Grace said “If God decides to take him, then we would rather field him as a corpse,” she told thousands of supporters at a rally in Buhera.
“Zimbabweans are so stupid they can vote for anything that we ask them to vote for,” she said in local Shona language. The president, who will be 93 on Tuesday next week, has scaled back his public engagements, while his wife, who is 51, has become increasingly visible in the recent years. The late vice president, Simon Muzenda once also remarked that even if ZANU-PF fielded a baboon in an election, Zimbabweans would still vote for it.
