Grace Mugabe: If you wear miniskirts and get raped... It's your fault
Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe said women are to blame for rape because of the clothes they wear.
JOHANNESBURG - Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe has once again sparked outrage with her controversial comments.
The first lady said women are to blame for rape because of the clothes they wear.
According to reports she said, "If you walk around wearing miniskirts displaying your thighs and inviting men to drool over you, then you want to complain when you have been raped? It's unfortunate because it will be your fault."
The 50-year-old is holding rallies in all of the country's provinces.
On Friday Robert Mugabe's wife also sent social media into outrage when she said often skips meals in solidarity with the hungry in Zimbabwe.
The first lady suggested that the reason reporters from Zimbabwe's private press write unflattering reports about her is because they're hungry.
Her rape comments have sent Twitter into a frenzy:
