WATCH: Mugabe’s son lifts the lid on his lavish life


Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s son has lifted the lid on his and his brother’s lavish life in South Africa in a video he posted to YouTube.

The video shows Bellarmine Chatunga Mugabe with friends, drinking alcohol and smoking alongside unidentified women. He tells a friend what an habitual clubber he is, and can also be seen putting on a camouflage sweater his father’s government has banned in Zimbabwe.

“I have been to the club with you personally so you can’t tell me that you don’t club. Tell them I don’t eat sadza (Zimbabwe’s staple food) from her house, she didn’t even raise me and they can’t tell me anything… they want to judge me,” Chatunga says in the video.

“Anyway guys, I hope you are having a great day, live your life and have fun,” he added.

The video has caused much consternation, as the Mugabes flaunt a lavish lifestyle when most people in their homeland survive “on less than 35 US cents per day”, former Zimbabwe finance minister Tendai Biti told an opposition rally in Harare last Saturday.
