Grace continues to embarrass Mugabe


First Lady Grace Mugabe continues to embarrass President Robert Mugabe all because she changed her mind about a ring she had ordered for her 20th wedding anniversary.

The ring was not only expensive at $1.3 million but when she changed her mind, Grace wanted the amount which she had transferred from a Zimbabwean bank to be refunded in Dubai.

Now it turns out her son is staying in a $500 000 a year apartment in Dubai.

The gory details are coming out in a legal wrangle she has with Lebanese businessman Jamal Ahmed from whom she ordered the ring.

Robert Junior is said to be living in a 10-bedrom villa in an exclusive Dubai neighbourhood whose address has been given as J11, Emirates Hills.

The details coming out of court could also put the young Mugabe’s security at risk and worse stil in also putting into question the professionalism of the country’s security services.

According to NewZimbabwe.Com, Ahmed is now asking in court how the First family pays Robert Junior’s rent and expenses if they do not have an account outside the country.

He is also rubbishing claims by the First Lady that he is a criminal, asking: “With all the security around her (Grace), why would (she) have dealt with me if I was of bad character? Is she saying that Zimbabwean security is so bad that it would have allowed the First Family to have tea with family members of a fraudster and to buy a diamond from the very same fraudster?”
