Robert Mugabe recently resigned from his position as the president after ruling Zimbabwe for more than four decades. Army generals said that they wanted to avoid a ‘dishonorable exit’ for the 93-year-old. These officials said that Mugabe and his family could remain living in Zimbabwe. Mugabe and his wife, Grace, were offered immunity from prosecution after resigning. Mugabe ruled Zimbabwe since their independence in 1980.
Emmerson Mnangagwa, Mugabe’s former vice-president, will be sworn in as president on Friday.
However, Mugabe’s children, as well as his allies’ children, have long been known to flaunt their wealth online.
Mugabe’s two sons, 24-year-old Robert Jr, and 20-year-old Chatunga Mugabe are known to be big spenders. In September, Chatunga purchased two Rolls Royces.
During his time studying American Architecture in Dubai, Robert Junior showed up to school in a black Batmobile. He also showcased his private jet with a gold interior on his Instagram.
Chatunga is known as one of the country’s biggest spenders as he was seen on a video pouring a bottle of Ace of Spades champagne over his diamond-encrusted Rolex watch.
In a country where 93 percent of the population is estimated to be living under the poverty line, the Mugabe family seems to be living lavishly.
Mugabe’s wife, Grace, nicknamed ‘Gucci,’ is known for her big spending at designer stores as well as jewelry stores.
Two girls dubbed the ‘Zimbabwe Kardashians’ are daughters of property mogul and politician Philip Chiyangwa. Philip is reportedly the ‘nephew’ of Mugabe. He is estimated to be worth at least 280 million dollars.
The ‘Zimbabwe Kardashians’, Vanessa and Michelle Chironga, are both 28 years old and are known for their notorious spending.
Michelle drives around in a 100,000 dollar Victoria Beckham Edition 2013 Land Rover while her sister had a $65,000 wedding and honeymoon in Seychelles which she said was ‘low-cost.’
Sidney Himbara Sr. is one of the richest people in Zimbabwe since he is the owner of the company that oversees all of Zimbabwe’s infrastructure.
As a result, his son Sidney Himbara Jr is also able to flaunt his astonishing wealth online. He regularly shows off his lavish vacations to exotic destinations on his private jets.
And of course, no line of private jets is complete without the accompanying line of expensive cars. Sidney is known on social media for displaying his lavish spendings.
Uebert Angel is another rich man in Zimbabwe as he is the CEO of The Billion Group and his friend, Genius Kadungure, is another rich businessman who is known for his flamboyant displays of wealth online.
