Zimbabwe’s first lady, Grace Mugabe, seems to want to turn her SA into a second home, after acquiring assets worth at least 70 million rand in six months, despite the intention to use the properties to make a civil action in a case of aggression. Mugabe, who owns two mansions in Sandhurst, Johannesburg, bought a Rolls-Royce Ghost 2017 worth about 6 million rand.
The car was paid in cash and sources say it will be your official car when you are in the country. “This car is armored and the best in the Rolls range, in terms of comfort, will use it here [in South Africa] because it uses state-owned Mercedes-Benz cars,” a source close to their relationships
His son Russell Goreraza purchased last month two Rolls-Royce and his mother’s car were bought at the same dealership a week later. Another source said Mugabe decided to keep the car in SA to avoid bad press at home.
“When his son and a colleague imported two tax-free Rolls-Royce Wraith into Zimbabwe, there was a violent reaction that even poured into parliament, and opposition politicians said he was spending public money on a hasty abandonment. that they decided to keep the car in SA as part of their ownership, “the source said.
Zimbabwe Independent reported last week that the car was black with a white interior and it was paid in cash. It would still have been collected and registered as a South African vehicle. “Grace sent someone to pay R5.8 million in cash for the car, a Rolls-Royce 2017 Ghost. The car is currently parked in the basement of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars,” the newspaper reported.
Sources say one of Sandhurst’s houses in Mugabe is being renovated. “When renovations are completed, the property would be one of the most luxurious and safest homes in the region,” the source said. His spokesman, Olga Bungu, was not available for comment. Meanwhile, President Robert Mugabe is in SA for the SA-Zimbabwe (BNC) binational Commission in Pretoria, but his wife did not make the trip to SA, avoiding a sidecar linked to his model of aggression Gabriella Engels in August.
