VICE-PRESIDENT Joice Mujuru has posted two sarcastic comments on her Facebook page which observers said were pointed at President Robert Mugabe's wife, Grace.

It could not however be readily verified if the Facebook account, officially belongs to Vice President Mujuru, but the account was created last year.

Mujuru has over the past four weeks been subjected to fierce attacks by Grace who accused her of fanning factionalism in the ruling Zanu-PF party and plotting to oust her 90-year-old husband.

More significantly, Grace accused Mujuru of corruption, claiming she was engaged in illicit diamond dealing and running an extortion racket demanding ten percent shareholding in private companies.

Until now, Mujuru had maintained respectful silence as Grace ranted against her and her allies.

But in a post dated October 20, Mujuru denied turning her back on Mugabe as alleged by Grace.

She also dismissed the First Lady as a blabbermouth.

"Loyal to the President, loyal to the party, loyal to the liberation struggle, loyal to the people; muridzo haticheuke (we will not be swayed by those whistling in the dark)," Mujuru declared defiantly in the cryptic message.


Until the posting Mujuru was last on her page on February 20 this year.

She also posted a biting commentary on the recent political events that have seen Grace lash out at her during her meet-the-people rallies.

"Kana benzi rikabata pito...," she said in another brief post, which can be loosely translated, when a deranged person is in charge . . .

Although Mujuru did not mention Grace by name, the comments were pregnant with meaning following the recent public attacks she has been subjected to over the last month.

The rift between Grace and Mujuru widened on Tuesday after the First Lady, who was coming from the Vatican together with her husband, declined to shake Mujuru's hand.

Grace is apparently backing a faction within Zanu-PF that is supporting Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa.

On Monday, opposition leader Simba Makoni criticised Grace for "straying into the territory of the state president" while NCA leader, Lovemore Madhuku, warned that the first lady risked being assassinated by hawks within Zanu-PF if she takes over from her husband as state president.

Grace is a mental case. She needs psychological attetion. Otherwise if the president refuses t denounce Mai Mujuru in the way she did, she will turn on against him. Chokwadi munonzwa kunzi President vawanikwa vakafa muSate House imomo.

Let's admit that Mai Mujuru is a sinner. Is Mnangagwa a saint? People are suffering, hate speech makes their lives worse. People are struggling with life, when they see The First Lady they expect to be comforted.
