The woman best known for humiliating VP Emmerson Mnangagwa, Sarah Mahoka, now stands accused of stealing and lying to First Lady Grace Mugabe.
Last week, some disgruntled ZANU-PF cadres demonstrated against Mahoka on the sidelines of a meeting convened by the women’s assembly at the ruling party’s offices in Chinhoyi.
The protesters were holding placards, denouncing the Hurungwe East legislator for misleading and stealing from Grace. Some of the placards read: “Sarah uri mbavha, Unoba (You are a thief Sarah); Sarah unonyepera Mai uchivabira, ibva hatichakudi (Sarah, you lie to the First Lady; you also steal from her — we don’t want you anymore).”
Mahoka denied lying to the First Lady. She also repudiated claims that she was stealing from her boss. Mahoka is accusing some war veterans in Mashonaland West province of leading the onslaught on her character.
“I do not understand where these accusations that I am lying to the First Lady are coming from. Maybe you should ask the First Lady,” said Mahoka.
“I am not a war veteran and how can I undermine them, in what capacity? Those who are spreading lies about me saying that I have never done anything positive must face me during the forthcoming elections. In my constituency I will stand against real men not against people who want to waste my time. They must be prepared for real war to take over from me in Hurungwe East than abusing my name (simply) because I am a woman. Some men must learn to appreciate whatever is done by women rather than spreading rumours and lies about me,” said Mahoka
