Not to educated on Zam and Zim, but the only thing Zuma's wife gives Saffers hope for is that their visas for Australia will come through soon.
You know a good African woman that would give African women hope that their country won't be a 3rd world mess? Helen Zille, DA Leader and Premier of the Western Cape.
But that will never happen because your average South African wouldn't dare vote for a non-black person regardless if they're clearly the better choice.

RIP Zuid-Afrika

No this is not good news for Zimbabwe, nor for women. Grace Mugabe is not qualified, and will only run to continue Robert Mugabe's stranglehold over Zimbabwe. There has not been anything close to a democratic process in Zimbabwe for years, it's time for another revolution.

Zimbabwe problem is not democracy, it is the European embargo .

The European Union suspended sanctions on eight of Zimbabwe's most powerful military and political figures on Monday, but kept them on President Robert Mugabe and his wife, in a cautious easing of policy after last year's disputed elections.

The 28-nation EU, which imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe in 2002 in protest at human rights abuses and violations of democracy under Mugabe, has gradually eased sanctions over the last few years to encourage political reform.

You really need to educate yourself on Zimbabwe. EU sanctions were imposed in 2002, that is 22 years after independence, and 22 years after Mugabe came into power, and long after the Zimbabwean economy went down the toilet due to corruption.

You are sadly misinformed. Read up on the Matabele Massacre if you want to know what your darling Bob has been up to. Even members of his own cabinet and parliament acknowledge they were responsible for killing 20,000 Matabele in the 80's. If these aren't human rights violations I don't know what are!
