Why we have not commented on the Gono-Grace story

So the Sunday Times in the UK and in Johannesburg ran a story the other day with details of an alleged 5-year affair between Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Gideon Gono and First Lady Grace Mugabe.

We were inundated with calls and emails asking us for an opinion on this.

Firstly such a story needs to be fully corroborated before it is commented on. Given that there were no real comments from the Mugabe-Gono side in the magazine made it a bit worrying.

Yes we are all about opinion but at the same time slander or potential slander is a completely different kettle of fish.

Besides, even if there is an affair, who Gono or Grace decide to sleep with is none of our business.
