HARARE: Robert Mugabe has changed his mind – again.

Last month, he said he never trusted Emmerson Mnangagwa for the 54 years they worked together. He said he had backed opposition leader Nelson Chamisa in the elections. Now, he and his wife Grace are all over him and say President Mnangagwa’s narrow victory at the polls was backed by God.

The couple said this after Mnangagwa hired a massively expensive air charter – that may have cost about R10 million – to bring Grace Mugabe back to Zimbabwe from Singapore where she had been undergoing medical treatment. Article: Peta Thornycroft, Video: Matthew Van Schalkwyk/ANA
