Dare to Boo Grace Mugabe in Zimbabwe?

Police have launched a manhunt for a group of ruling party youths that booed First Lady Grace Mugabe at a rally in Bulawayo. The heckling angered President Robert Mugabe, who accused his then-deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa of planning to embarass the First Lady. In Zimbabwe, this is a criminal offense that can result in a one-year prison sentence or a fine.
