Addressing journalists on Wednesday, Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) chairperson Christopher Mutsvangwa claimed that he helped Bona Mugabe relocate to Hong Kong after she was deported from Australia in 2008 and went on to study at City University in Hong Kong.
This is a true story. This other day, the president (Robert Mugabe) was talking about . . . five to six children of the most prominent politicians who were being kicked out of schools in Western countries, among those who were being kicked out was a child of the president of Zimbabwe called Bona. She was kicked out of Australia.
I was the ambassador in Beijing, she was being taught in an English environment in Australia . . . When she was kicked out, together with (former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Gideon) Gono and (former Labour minister Nicholas) Goche’s children.
They were thinking of taking her to Singapore. I said Singapore’s national intelligence is controlled by the Americans and I suggested and appealed to the Chinese so that Bona goes to Hong Kong, they speak English but the national security is controlled by China because Hong Kong is part of China. That’s how I managed to secure a place for her. That’s how she managed to become what she is today.
That’s what friends do. Kasukuwere and Jonathan want the mother. They don’t want to help the family.
