Posted on 10/25/2010 11:02:12 AM PDT by nickcarraway
PRESIDENT Robert Mugabes wife, Grace has been having a secret affair with central bank chief, Gideon Gono, a British newspaper, The Sunday Times has claimed.
Grace - who is 41 years younger than 86-year-old Mugabe - has allegedly spent the last five years cuckolding the veteran president with Gono, her husband's financial adviser and a key political ally.
The couple would meet as often as three times a month either at Graces dairy farm or in expensive hotels in neighbouring South Africa as well as on foreign trips to Asia.
Mugabes late sister, Sabina, is said to have revealed the sensational affair to her brother as she lay dying in a Harare hospital three months ago.
Sabina was said to have intensely disliked Grace but found it difficult to oppose her.
However after realising she was dying, she decided to warn her brother about his cheating wife and her lover.
Mugabe learnt the shocking news as he sat by his dying sisters bed in July.
He is said to have left the meeting devastated although initially refusing to believe the allegations.
The President later consulted his most trusted bodyguard Cain Chademana who had sat in on the meeting with Sabina.
The bodyguard reportedly said, like other members of the secret service, he had also heard the rumours.
Particularly galling for Mugabe however, was the fact that he had encouraged the friendship thinking the pair was discussing mutual business interests.
Chademana who is said to be the source of the story by intelligence officers quoted by the newspaper has since lost his life amid suspicions that he was poisoned.
His body was handed to his family for burial at the end of August. The Sunday Times alleges no autopsy was carried out.
The newspaper claims officials had hoped the secret affair would be buried with Chademana but renegade officers in the intelligence services, unhappy with conditions of service, have started talking.
Still, it is not the first time Grace has been linked to affairs behind her ageing husbands back.
One alleged former lover died in a mysterious car accident. Another, a business tycoon, fled the country.
Gono has known Grace, who married Mugabe in 1996, for at least 15 years and they are partners in a number of business enterprises.
The central bank governor is said to be one of Mugabes most trusted friends and has served as governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe since 2003.

What needs to be said more...
It will suck to be him. I guess that’s one of the risks of working for savages...and porking the Chief’s wife.
I’m skimming the headlines, and I misread “Gono” as “Gore” and said to myself....gawd....
Whats the big deal? Its not like the 86 year old Mugabe is going to be able to satisfy her anyway, is it? He really is too sensitive..
I’m wondering what woman’s favors would be worth getting ‘necklaced’ for.

You mean like trying to push a rope up a tree?
Gono Had Affair with Grace Mugabe: Paper
Isn’t she affraid of getting Gono rea?
Maybe she thought it was Gono’s era.
You make the call...
Nobody's perfect, but at least he has a good voice.

Uhh, if it’s all the same, I’ll just take the necklacing.
He recently spoke up after a few days when rumours swirled that he had died.
I doubt that Mugabe cares in the least. He is one of the most vile wretched creatures on earth.
Yuk! I’ll pass. Thank you!
There is very little difference between Mugabe's mind and Obama's mind. This is how they see the world...
Grace has a lot of power. She can say “Screw me or die!”, which also means that once it’s discovered, it was “Screw me and die.” I suppose the second choice is better—anything to buy time in that hell-hole.
I guess the money supply wasn’t the only thing ole Gordon was pumping up.
Gono is a goner?
Grace, the female mantis!
I just checked my One Hundred Trillion Dollar Zim banknote and indeed it has his Gono’s name on it. This makes it even more of a conversation starter than before.
I wonder if “to gono” will ever become a verb. Of course, it would be conjugated in the normal way. Like “Munson” in “Kingpin.”
To much of the world, where it is ok to be racist, Obama is like Mugabe, a thief and an incompetent. Black is black is incompetent.
You just know Michelle is going to get that outfit.
She was on her fourth husband, all three priors had died young or middle aged.
Not that there was anything suspicious about that (hmm) but she was known in the neighborhood as "The Black Widow" as well as for the airs she put on.
The strange premature deaths of Grace Mugabe's lovers may not qualify her for the appellation "The Black Widow", but certainly "The Black Mistress" could certainly apply.
I’m sure she’s no prize, but if you live in a country with a brutal tyrant, and you have an affair with his wife, you are asking for trouble.
From Grace’s picture you can tell she’s a snappy dresser
but she’s got Michelle’s mouth.
