Late Sarah ‘Sally’ Francesca Hayfron Mugabe, the first wife of former Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, was born June 6, 1931. She was a Ghanaian professional teacher who attended the Achimota School and met her future husband, Mr. Robert Mugabe at the Takoradi Teachers’ Training College.
Sally M, born originally as Sally Mugabe Hayfron was named after her grandmother, the former Zimbabwe First Lady, Sally Francesca Mugabe Hayfron.
Though there is a vast difference in the choice of career paths, Maame Diagyama, sister to Rena Sunkwa Hayfron[father of Sally M] and founder of Hour of Grace Pentecostal Academy recounts some similarities: “well, both are from different eras. Yet they’ve chosen to be ambitious and go-getters, my opinion. Music and politics are ways to deal with people, and the masses. I believe there are those similarities in their traits.
“First Lady[Sally Francesca Mugabe Hayfron] brought recognition to the family and earned respect too. Though we have tried to live in humility – during the 1983[famine], our family shared food and clothes to our neighbors because we were well to do. I am sure that is the same spirit she took out there.
“My daughter[Sally M] is on the same path but different career paths” – she concluded.
