…Zimboz commend her ‘maturity’
Bona Mugabe, the former president Robert Mugabe’s daughter, was one of the star attractions at President ED Mnangagwa’s inauguration at National Sports Stadium yesterday.
Many, both at the giant stadium and watching from home, admired her conduct and presence at the inauguration saying it was the best sign of how we should move on as a country.
Bona, accompanied by her husband Simba Chikore, was standing in for her parents who are reportedly unwell with Grace in Singapore.
Social media users were full of praise for Bona, not only for the humble gesture given the bitter attitude displayed by her parents towards the President ever since operation restore order started last year, but also for her general character and conduct.
She was described as humble, graceful, dignified, respectful, down to earth, level headed, mature amongst many other superlatives.
Some even went further to state that she is better than not just her siblings but her mother (the former first lady) as well.
When she went up the podium to congratulate President Mnangagwa, there was an applause for her from the crowd gathered at the stadium.
Below are some of the comments about Bona posted on social media . . .
