Her coming to be the first lady of Zimbabwe is a singular story full of intrigue and eyebrow-raising details. While married to another man, Grace began a relationship with her boss Robert Mugabe to whom she was a personal secretary in the late 1980s.

Mugabe’s first wife, Sally, was then battling for her life with a terminal illness.

After she became the wife of one of Africa’s most powerful men, Grace is accused of using her influence for undue gain through her investments in real estate, diamond and ivory trade.
