A picture depicting a frail-looking First Lady Grace Mugabe has gone viral.

The picture, which appears to have been taken inside State House, shows Grace looking very wasted standing next to another woman, whose face could not be identified as she was looking away from the camera.

President Robert Mugabe was seated on a sofa, shaking hands with a man wearing a shirt with South African national flag colours.

Presidential spokesperson George Charamba was not reachable to clarify on the authenticity of the pictures.

Grace's health has remained a mystery with sources claiming that she was out of the country where she was receiving medical treatment.

The picture went viral on social media yesterday, particularly WhatsApp and Facebook.

Mugabe in January told Zanu-PF supporters who had gathered at Harare International Airport to welcome him back home from the Far East where he had spent six weeks holidaying that Grace had remained in Singapore recovering from surgery to remove a nagging appendix.

Close sources claimed Grace was battling colon cancer which has metastasized.
