The Sunday News of South Africa claims that President Robert Mugabe owns a “luxurious Dubai mansion” which is next door to President Jacob Zuma’s mansion
The First Family have denied that they are still using the 10-bedroom mansion. However, a Dubai estate agent claims he sold the property to Grace Mugabe for R130 million in 2015 after she started off by renting it for R500 000 a month. Details of the Mugabe’s home were revealed in the legal wrangle between First Lady Grace Mugabe and a Lebanese Jeweller over a $1.3 million diamond ring.
Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba said:
As a responsible father, President Mugabe rented that property for his son who was studying in Dubai. The property is no longer there.
