    Apart from her involvement in politics, Grace Mugabe has been amassing herself with wealth. She recently moved to expand her Mazowe "empire" by grabbing the iconic state-owned Mazowe Dam. This affected a number of families who were evicted from their homes to pave way for her. The families had "earned a living through fishing and other activities around there"
