The secret of African First Ladies

from the UKIndependent

most of it is about a Nigerian first lady who has written a "tell all" book...but then the article goes on to name some more "first ladies" or "second ladies" who help spend their country's money....including Grace:

In Zimbabwe there is less to laugh about. Grace Mugabe, Robert's second wife, has become a national hate figure, notorious for her extravagance during the most dramatic collapse of an economy during peacetime ever seen. Yesterday she stoked fresh outrage by withdrawing a reported $92,000 from the central bank to fund a family holiday in Malaysia.

Sounds like they took lessons from ImeldaMarcos...who was most famous for her shoe collection.
