Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe left behind $10 million, some properties: State media

Zimbabwe's former president Mugabe left behind $10m but no will

Zimbabwe's former president Mugabe left behind $10m but no will

Some in Zimbabwe view that estate as far too modest for Mugabe, who ruled for 37 years and was accused by critics of accumulating vast riches and presiding over grand corruption.

The properties listed are a house in Waterfalls, a Villa in Gunhill, a house in Mt Pleasant, a Lot in Helensvale, a farm in Highfield, an approximately five-acre rural farming plot in Zvimba, Zvimba rural home sitting on one hectare, five-acre Zvimba orchard and 10 cars.

The list does not include several farms that he reportedly owned or a dairy business he ran with his wife Grace, or any property outside Zimbabwe.

The Herald said no will had been found and a meeting has been scheduled for Thursday to appoint an executor to settle the estate.

The late former leader's daughter, Bona Chikore, in October, disclosed to the Master's Office that her father had US$10 million in a CBZ Bank Nostro account as well as the immovable property left behind by the national hero.

According to the family lawyer, Mugabe also left behind a number of other properties.

This is the first stage of compiling the former president's assets, but "the suggestion that the Estate has been finalised is untrue and misleading". Therefore the suggestion that the estate has been finalised is untrue and misleading. "The long drawn out process has only begun", the family's lawyer told the BBC.

Arsenal Make Tentative Brendan Rodgers Enquiries, Rebuffed
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Wednesday's Merseyside derby could "solve a lot of problems" for Everton boss Marco Silva . Arsenal were previously interested in hiring Rodgers, after Arsene Wenger announced he'd be leaving the club.

"The 10 cars are a vintage auto collection which frankly had value only to him", Mr Hussein added.

However there was no point out of this in a letter by his daughter, Bona Chikowore, to the excessive court docket, quoted by the state-owned Day by day Herald. Chikowore did not answer calls to her mobile phone.

A diplomatic cable from the US Embassy in Harare in 2001 that was published by WikiLeaks said it was rumored that Mugabe had more than one billion dollars in assets in Zimbabwe and overseas, but that he had no reliable information.

Social media posts showing his sons Robert Jr and Bellarmine Chatunga with bottles of expensive champagne at a Johannesburg nightclub and reports of Grace's shopping sprees have offered glimpses of lavish spending.

Towards the end of his life, Mugabe complained about the size of his retirement package and said he did not have enough money to pay for the upkeep of the Blue Roof.
