PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe’s sons, Robert Junior and Chatunga Bellarmine—notorious for a wild partying lifestyle — were recently evicted from a luxurious apartment in South Africa’s most affluent area of Sandton in Johannesburg after a violent brawl that left one security officer with a broken leg and arm, the Zimbabwe Independent can exclusively report.
The Inependant reports this week Mugabe’s boys, known in social circles for hanging out with a harem of trendy young ladies, drinking binges and alleged drug abuse, as well as splurging money like confetti, were last month booted out of The Regent MCC luxury apartments located at Number 21 West Road South, Morningside in Sandton.
Sources said Robert Jr and Chatunga were kicked out of apartment number 601 at the 10-storey block which costs up to R74 000 per month for a four-bedroomed crib. The facility has a five-metre-high perimeter fence, a double gate, 24-hour entrance security, fingerprint-secured elevator entry, a spa, gym and restaurant.
This comes after the two boys and their friends recently painted the town red during a birthday party of one of them.
A source said they spent money all over Johannesburg, including at a famous Sandton night club Taboo and Sun City, South Africa’s premium tourist and weekend destination with a host of hotels, remarkable attractions and entertainment — famed for golfing, game viewing and water sports.
As first reported by the Independent in April, Mugabe’s sons relocated from Dubai and Harare to Johannesburg at the beginning of the year after some problems involving fights and banned substances, especially in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This paper also reported that security details feared for their lives due to their indulgent lifestyles and Johannesburg’s violent crime wave.
Sources said the boys lived large: apart from staying in the luxurious apartment, they were usually chauffeured in Mercedes-Benz and BMW cars, while also enjoying the services of a chef and a dozen security details.
Sources said following last month’s violent brawl, First Lady Grace Mugabe hurried to Johannesburg to vacate her boys from The Regent and ensure their safety. As a result, she failed to attend Mugabe’s youth rally address in Masvingo. The fracas occurred a day before the rally on June 30.
