According to reports, Graca Machel married Mozambican revolutionary leader Samora Machel in 1975 and her husband became president as she became the first lady. Unfortunately, her husband died in 1986.

In the 1990s, she was usually seen around the late South Africa president Nelson Mandela, after their first official meeting following his release from prison in 1990.
