Mugabe mansion undergoes renovations


PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe’s Borrowdale Brooke mansion is undergoing renovations and construction work amid reports that goods worth millions of dollars have been ordered to embellish the 25-roomed mansion.


Though it could not be immediately established why the mansion was undergoing refurbishment, NewsDay understands that the mansion will host the much-publicised wedding of the first couple’s daughter Bona in March.

Sources close to the Mugabe residence said more than 10 trucks were hired from South Africa with equipment meant for the refurbishment of the mansion in the leafy suburb.

Yesterday, construction workers were busy making designs at the main gate and on the walls with some of the designs similar to those at the Chinese mall in Belvedere, Harare.

Building equipment had been offloaded outside the President’s house while containers loaded with more material were outside the house believed to be the venue of the wedding.

Bona will tie the knot with husband Simba Chikore on March 1. Bona completed traditional marriage formalities with Chikore, a pilot, amid reports the member of ZAOGA church paid $35 000 in bride price for Mugabe’s daughter.

Thousands  of guests are expected to grace the occasion among them ministers, African leaders and friends of the First family. Bona’s wedding has been close to the Mugabe’s hearts with both her parents coming out in the open celebrating their daughter’s achievements.

First Lady Grace Mugabe last year told a woman’s conference that Bona had found a Mr Right while Mugabe told guests in Chishawasha last year that Bona was going to graduate into marriage after successfully completing her Master’s degree in Banking and Finance at the Management Institute of Singapore.

  1. When your Daughter is getting married, it is natural that Parents will do anything and everything within their means to make the occasion a happy and memorable one. Its a moment of immense pride and the President with his Wife are as excited as every parent should to prepare the best for their Daughter and rightly so.
    Must they be different, they are also human, please give them a break. While the story is informative and entertaining it has a cleverly hidden and naughty agenda.

  2. Whats wrong with the President renovating the house and most importantly the venue of the wedding,on a level mind every parent would want visitors to be happy at the wedding,chero imba yemapango inodzururwa wani nendove kana vaenzi vachiuya.Cow dung is used to spruce up and polish the mud hut in the most primitive social set up but mostly the important part is preparation for an important event.Hatidi kuti vanhu vapihwa mukana wekutaura pa muchato moomoka muchitinyadzisa muchitaura zvaana cuth bert ma baron plse.The President is only behaving as a parent.

  3. Apa mashaya nhau. Inga Gumbura ane 25 rooms dzekuabuser vanasikana vedu. Editor approch Zimsec vopihwa list yetop 100 and bottom hundred province by province. Every parent will buy your paper. Regai first family iitewo madanha ayo
