In a reminiscent incident echoing ‘Grace Mugabe last days’ political tensions, nine villagers in Zimbabwe have been arrested for allegedly booing First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa during her address at Watsomba Business Centre in Manicaland. The women, accused of disrupting Mnangagwa’s speech, were later released on free bail, thanks to the intervention of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).

The incident reportedly occurred after the villagers felt aggrieved for not receiving items distributed during Mnangagwa’s charitable work. The women, including Nester Chatiwana, Panashe Machekanzondo, Winnet Sithole, Maria Choto, Esnath Choto, Ellen Rujuwa, Faith Chidhakwa, Patience Matasva, and Joyce Mashingaidza, were charged with disorderly conduct in a public place.
