FORMER First Lady Grace Mugabe says the death of her mother has come as an opportune moment for her to mend bitter relations with her former Zanu-PF rival and now State President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

She was addressing mourners who had gathered at the former first couple's Blue Roof Borrowdale mansion Thursday night for the late Ambuya Idah Marufu's funeral wake.

Mnangagwa made a giant step to reach out to former state President Robert Mugabe and his wife when he chartered a plane to transport her from Singapore to attend her mother's funeral.

"If my mother's death is meant for our friendship to be back to where it was before, let it be so," Grace said tearfully while referring to the former first couple's long broken ties with Mnangagwa.

"I have said it before, we were great friends to an extent of sharing milk. Milk is a sensitive product but we shared it; that was the extent of our friendship."
