First Lady Grace Mugabe tells Zanu PF supporters in Rushinga that she’s not heading any faction in the party, adding her rallies are aimed at ensuring Zanu PF election promises are fulfilled. She also denied vote-buying with food and other handouts being parceled out at the rallies. The First Lady also declares Mashonaland Central a no-go area for opposition parties.
