Robert Mugabe's Wife Says He Could Run In Election 'As a Corpse'

Wife of Zimbabwe's 92-year-old President, Grace Mugabe says her husband, Robert Mugabe should run "as a corpse" in next year's election if he dies before voting takes place.

Grace Mugabe accused some ruling ZANU-PF party officials of plotting to take over from her husband and said that even if he dies, supporters should put his name on the ballot to show their love for him.

"If God decides to take him, then we would rather field him as a corpse," she told thousands of cheering supporters at a rally in Buhera in eastern Zimbabwe. She spoke in the local Shona language.

Mugabe has been in power since white minority rule ended in Zimbabwe in 1980 after years of war. A big celebration for him is planned on Feb. 25, a few days after his birthday.

Grace Mugabe warned associates of Mugabe from the era of guerrilla war against white rule that they can't take power because they also are old.
