(008274.77-E001840.93NAVRLOSUC20V)[I will be most surprised if the Zimbabwe Govt tells the truth. Mugabe was worth billions of US dollars. I think they will downplay his actual wealth. I think they have no choice but to lie about it. Jan]
Former President Robert Mugabe’s wealth will be revealed in a few days’ time, putting to rest much speculation and conjecture.
This week the Master of the High Court is expected to give the full list of what he owned, including investments, houses, cash and gifts ranging from cattle, precious minerals and even wild animals.
A Government gazette published on November 15 confirmed the registration of the estate.
“Notice is hereby given that the estate of the under-mentioned deceased persons, minors or persons whose whereabouts are unknown, are unrepresented and that the next of kin, creditors or other persons concerned are required to attend on the dates and at the times and places specified, for the selection of an executor, tutor or curator dative, as the case may be,” read the notice, which appeared with Mugabe’s name.
The estate, if published in full, will either confirm or put paid to various truths and untruths held by the public.
Mugabe died in Singapore on September 6 after battling ill-health since April. He was 95.
His widow, Grace, daughter Bona and sons, Robert Jnr and Bellarmine Chatunga, are likely to be beneficiaries of whatever the late former president left behind.State media
