FORMER Vice President Joice Runaida Mujuru is living probably the best time of her eventful life away from the glitz of cameras and the snooping paparazzi.

Also known by her nom-de-guerre Teurai Ropa, the veteran politician served as Vice-President of Zimbabwe from 2004 to 2014, deputizing founding President Robert Mugabe.

Previously she had served as a government minister from 1980, when she was the youngest Cabinet Minister at age 24.

Now living as an ordinary citizen following an unsuccessful shot at the Presidency in the 2018 elections, Mujuru has been recorded by family members helping around with some manual work at her farm.

In the short footage which we share below, Mujuru handles the pick and shovel with the energy of a teenager as she prepares foundation trenches for her fowl runs. She doesn’t look a day older than 16, a surprising feat for the 65-year-old former second most powerful person in the country.

Mujuru was fired from Zanu PF by Mugabe in 2015 and subsequently launched her own pllitical project. She entered the 2018 elections as a Presidential contender and performed horribly for a former State Vice President. She has since retired from active politics to grow her business and live a private life.

Her family says she’s also expanding into fish business alongside her other usual farming activities. Watch the footage below:
