Former first lady Grace Mugabe has revealed the person who was supposed to succeed the late Robert Mugabe as the President.

In an interview with South Africa’s Sunday Times Grace said she favoured Defence Minister Sydney Sekeremayi.

She however dismissed claimed that Mnangagwa was fired so that she could succeed her husband as president were false.

“I didn’t want even to be vice-president,” she told the Sunday Times.

She also told the Sunday Times that the former first family had declared the properties that they bought outside the country, two in South Africa and one in Hong Kong.

“In South Africa I bought a dilapidated house, I wanted to bring it down, demolish some parts and to renovate the house,” Grace said.

“We are honest people, we have no money outside. We don’t have a house in Dubai. We rented a house there when our son was studying there, but then he decided to go to South Africa to finish his studies.”
