Mujuru Photographed Farming

As she inspects her crops in a baggy red T-shirt and trainers, former vice president Joice Mujuru could be any Zimbabwean farmer.

Photos of Mujuru, who was sacked in December after a rage-filled campaign against her led by president Robert Mugabe's wife Grace, emerged in Zimbabwe on Wednesday, provoking declarations of devotion, and a few questions, from dozens of Zimbabweans.

The three photos of Mujuru, 59, walking through her crops were posted on a community Facebook page set up in support of the former vice president, who until recently was a strong contender to succeed Mugabe.

"That's my mum, true daughter of the soil, we love you," said Facebook user Frank Garufu, one of hundreds who responded to the post.

Wrote Samuel Takadzwa: "Great going madam boss."
Sidelining Mujuru and her supporters at the end of 2014, Mugabe said they would be freed up to farm.
