What Happens to Grace Mugabe Now?

Grace Mugabe, the widow of the late former President Robert Mugabe, has no plans to seek asylum outside Zimbabwe, a family spokesperson says. Grace fell out with President Emmerson Mnangagwa in a power struggle while he was vice president. Asked if the former First Lady was planning to go into exile, Robert Mugabe's nephew Leo Mugabe said: "She is Zimbabwean, she has no reason to go anywhere. She will be at her house at Blue Roof." However, it has emerged that political party Zanu-PF holds the title to Blue Roof.
