'I looked at her lustfully then kissed her. She didn't resist,' Robert Mugabe reveals how his adulterous affair with Grace began

"She didn’t protest or refuse and then I said to myself..its game over"

Speaking at the funeral of Grace’s mother over the weekend, an emotional Mugabe narrated to guests how he fell in love with his wife when she became his secretary.

"... She [Grace] came as a secretary and they were many of them, I just looked at them and then it was love at first sight with Grace. Then I said to her one day, I love you and she didn’t respond," Mugabe was quoted as saying by New.Zimbabwe.com.

I then grabbed her hand and I kissed her. She didn’t protest or refuse and then I said to myself now that she has accepted to be kissed, it's game over.."

Illness

This happened while his now late wife Sally Mugabe was suffering from renal complications and was unable to bear children for the former president who said he needed someone to give his mother grandchildren.

Mugabe – a staunch catholic - said he was torn apart between obeying the Catholic Church doctrine against adultery and pleasing his mother who wanted grandchildren.

“Yes, we had gotten involved when Sally was still alive, I had to. Grace and I never dated either, I was just introduced to her and I said to myself she is a beautiful girl,"  he said.

The 94-year-old eventually married Grace in 1996 and have two children to date, Robert Junior and Bellarmine Chatunga.
