Meet Zimbabwe's Little-Known First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa

As Zimbabwe celebrates its new President Emmerson Mnangagwa, many have already begun to draw comparisons between the new First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa and Grace Mugabe, the wife of former president Robert Mugabe, who was known for her expensive shopping sprees, hot temper and mounting political ambitions which, in the end, proved to be part of her husband's downfall. The First Lady now finds herself in a peculiar kind of spotlight, given the global attention and controversy that her predecessor courted.
