Robert Mugabe’s son has been ridiculed online for posting a tribute picture of the former leader.
Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe, one of the Zimbabwean dictator’s four children, changed his profile picture on Facebook to a downcast image of his father to mark the end of the 37-year Mugabe reign.
Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe, who is 21, is one of Robert Mugabe’s four children.
Zimbabweans were quick to point out the playboy’s luxury lifestyle was over now that the family were no longer in power after Emmerson Mnangagwa arrived in the capital ahead of being sworn in as leader on Friday November 24, 2017.
Outrage is building in Harare amid speculation that Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace will be granted immunity from prosecution which would mean they get to keep their vast property portfolio intact.
Chatunga regularly hits the African headlines as one of the continent’s most outrageous spenders. Two weeks ago, a video emerged of him pouring a bottle of Ace of Spades champagne over his diamond-encrusted Rolex watch as seen in video below.
Chatunga told his Instagram followers with a less than subtle picture of his diamond encrusted Rolex: ‘$60,000 on the wrist when your daddy run the whole country ya know.’
In response to the picture of his father, his fellow countrymen rushed to mock the family. Themani Elmon Jr said: ‘Dad fell off the cash cow called Zanu PF, no more champagne bathes.’
But Cliff Baba Ethan Nhariswa pointed out: ‘Am sure they have enough to live for four more lifetimes spending exactly the same.’
Natasha Kimberley went on the attack too, slamming the former dictator: ‘He has blood on his hands,’ she said… ‘Many died because of him. Many went missing
‘Imagine having your brother being cut both hands. Houses destroyed many became homeless. ‘He talks about unity and love and he failed to love his nation. She continued, ‘You are spending thousands on a watch. People are suffering. Going to sleep without eating…‘
‘And your heartless mother go on a shopping spree. You’re thieves, and such behaviour will not go unpunished.’
‘I’m disappointed in your father and your mother, worse. Your mother is a disgrace to womanhood‘, she ended.
Grace Mugabe has become a hated figure in Zimbabwe, earning the nickname Gucci Grace for her elaborate spending.
