Not kidding, reports from Zimbabwe have it the Robert Mugabe’s wife donated her underpants to supporters of the ancient leader of the Southern African country.
From what we gathered, the First Lady, Grace Mugabe reportedly donated used underwear and night dresses at a Zanu-PF meeting in Mutare.
It is said that the donation was handed to the supporters of Zanu-PF by a legislator, Esau Mupfumi who said he was sent by Mugabe’s wife.
Mupfumi was quoted to have said:
“…I visited the State House and I met the First Lady Grace Mugabe and I was given these clothes so that I can give you. I have briefs for you and I am told that most of your briefs are not in good shape, please come and collect your allocations today. We have nightdresses, sandals and clothes, come and take, this is from your First Lady Grace Mugabe.”
While BuzzSouthAfrica is yet to authenticate if the First Lady did what they said she did, it has circulated that the journalist who reported the story has been arrested.
As learnt, police came for the NewsDay Mutare-based journalist, Kenneth Nyangani. He was arrested and detained at Mutare Central police command for writing the news story.
Confirming this, NewsDay related that Kenneth’s lawyer, Passmore Nyakureba of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) disclosed that his client has been charged with criminal defamation under the Criminal (Codification and Reform) Act.
“The brief facts are that Kenneth was picked up last night around 10 pm at his home in Dangamvura and I attended to him around 11:30 pm at Mutare Central where he was subsequently detained.
“At the moment I am in the Crime office. The Member-in-Charge Crime Assistant Inspector Shariwa is referring the docket to Law and Order,” said the lawyer.
