“When she was about to leave, people some started booing her showing their displeasure but she seemed unbothered as she went to her car, waving with a fist,” said the source.
The first lady has in the past few weeks, become less popular as citizens accuse her of meddling in government business affairs despite her not being a government office bearer.
Skeptics say she risks going the former First Lady, Grace Mugabe’s way if she does not tone down.
