Simba Chikore lists staggering properties in Bona divorce case

Simba Chikore has exposed how the Robert Mugabe family benefited from State largesse as he listed the family’s riches in the country and abroad in the divorce case with Bona Mugabe.

HARARE – Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe‘s son-in-law, Simbarashe Mutsahuni Chikore, has claimed that his family benefited from state largesse, and has listed their riches in the country and abroad, including cash stashed in Dubai.

This information came to light in Chikore‘s counterclaim against his wife, Bona, who filed for divorce in March of this year, claiming that the marriage had irretrievably broken down.

Chikore is demanding at least US$500,000 as a divorce settlement.

Chikore claims that the couple has acquired property, cash, and other valuables worth more than US$1 billion, which should be shared.

He submitted a list of assets that includes 21 farms, listed residential stands worth US$50,636,514, a Rolls Royce valued at AED 2,900,000 (US$789,695), and other top-of-the-range cars in their carport.

Chikore also stated that he has AED 1,300,000 cash stashed in Dubai and US$760,000 from weddings, bank account withdrawals, farm operations and sales, and cash from farm operations (US$129,000).

Chikore further disclosed that they jointly have liabilities including a farm command loan of US$864,000, Seed Co’s debt for seed maize of US$18,000, and Prudential Investment for children’s college fees of US$15,000.

Chikore also submitted a list of properties sold to meet the operations of the farm worth millions of dollars. The couple also has immovable property valued at more than US$19 million.

The late former President Mugabe used to direct top ruling party and government officials to relinquish farms under the “one man, one farm policy,” which makes the fact that his family has 21 farms a curious coincidence.

Chikore has promised to disclose the exact amount of substantial cash in foreign currency in court.

Chikore’s counterclaim has thrown a spotlight on the Mugabe family’s wealth, which is likely to fuel further public discontent in a country where many are struggling to make ends meet.
