Zimbabweans React to Simba & Bona Property List
The property list includes prime land in Helensvale and Creagh and 21 farms among other things.
Zimbabweans have reacted to Simba and Bona's property list that was published as part of the settlement of their divorce.
Known then as a mere pilot, Simba Chikoore got married to Bona Mugabe daughter to the late Robert Gabriel Mugabe who was deposed in a 2017 coup. Now the man is claiming that he should get part of the largesse that is in Bona Mugabe’s name.
Few Zimbabweans are worried about how the two will settle their divorce but people are raising eyebrows at the fortune that 32-year-old Bona has amassed. Multiple farms and prime city land and a mansion in Dubai form part of the properties.
Kerina Mujati said this list exposes Robert Gabriel Mugabe as a hypocrite and pseudo Pan Africanist.
Simba Chikowore might be humiliating Grace and Bona Mugabe, just like any divorce….that is for another day. This divorce has opened a can of worms that Robert Gabriel Mugabe was a hypocrite and pseudo Pan Africanist. He was a man who failed to practise what he was preaching on… pic.twitter.com/5KaoBGfbZI

MamakaCleo said it's now evident that the Third Chimurenga was never about the common people but for those in the top echelons of power.
So the third Chimurenga coined as Land Redistribution Program was not all about the common man but for the few ZANU PF top echelon. To think how the war veterans were used to forcefully grab land from the whites, which they were later evicted from? ZANU PF has done us dirty. pic.twitter.com/snqDisZr5S
