Robert Mugabe and Grace Mugabe are in essence taking forever to move their property from State House.
Ousted iconic and highly controversial former leader of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe is known for his infamous penchant of being stubborn and adamant no matter how the odds may be stacked against him. Reports suggest that Robert Mugabe and his edgy wife are refusing to vacate from State House (also known as Zimbabwe House), the official residence of the President in Zimbabwe.
Robert Mugabe and Grace Mugabe are in essence taking forever to move their property from State House, effectively meaning that four months after President Mnangagwa took power, he still does not have an official residence. President Mnangagwa currently resides at his modest private residence in the northern suburbs of Harare, the capital city.
Grace Mugabe, still trying to mount some modicum of resistance, alleged that laptops had been stolen from haulage trucks at State House. George Charamba, the propaganda-spinning spokesperson who served Mugabe, and is now serving Mnangagwa, confirmed that Mugabe was taking ages to hand over the keys to the official residence.
"[Mnangagwa] hasn't set foot at Zimbabwe House but how do you keep the keys to the property when there is someone who must come in?"
Charamba said that Mugabe was taking long to move his property.
The government has disputed claims that property was stolen from the residence and also from Grace Mugabe's farm.
However the three containers with former President Robert Mugabe’s belongings that were stuck at Zimbabwe House have been moved to his Blue Roof mansion, according to The Standard.
Ever since Mugabe was ousted from power in November last year, he has been a bitter man, as shown by what he said in various interviews when international media houses (which he used to ban) interviewed him.
