Grace Mugabe (née Marufu, 23 July 1965) is the wife of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe (91 years old) and the First Lady of Zimbabwe from her marriage to the leader in 1996.
Grace was previously married to Stanley Goreraza, an air force pilot, who is defence attaché at the Zimbabwe embassy in China.
As secretary to the president, she became his mistress while still married to Goreraza and together they had two children, Bona, named after Mugabe's mother, and Robert Peter, Jr. The couple were married in an extravagant Catholic Mass, titled the "Wedding of the Century" by the Zimbabwe press, after the death of Mugabe's first wife, Sally Hayfron.
In 1997, Grace Mugabe gave birth to the couple's third child, Chatunga. Grace is popularly known in Zimbabwe as "Dis Grace", a reference to her extravagant lifestyle while maintaining political responsibilities as first lady.
In 2014, Grace Mugabe was given a doctorate in sociology by the University of Zimbabwe, only two months after registering at the university and although a dissertation does not exist. The degree was widely described as fraudulent. Grace Mugabe is under personal sanctions in the European Union and the United States for her role in the Mugabe regime.
Grace Mugabe was designated as head of the ZANU-PF Women's League in 2014.
