Starts Grace relationship

1 Jan, 1986

Robert starts a relationship with Grace, who is a secretary in his office and is 40 years his junior. Mugabe claims that Sally was aware of the relationship and “accepted it”.

I did tell her and she just kept quiet and said fine but she did ask, ‘Do you still love me?’ I said yes. And she said, ‘Oh, fine’. Even as Sally was still going through her last few days, although it might have appeared to some as cruel, I said to myself well, it’s not just myself needing children, my mother has all the time said, ah, am I going to die without seeing grandchildren?
