President Robert Mugabe on Saturday admitted that his last born son Chatunga is giving the first family a difficult time because “he does not eat at home and he comes back in the early hours of the morning.”
While addressing his supporters who attended first lady Grace Mugabe’ s birthday bash dubbed “the golden jubilee” at the first family’ s official Blue roof residency in Borrowdale Mugabe took a swipe at his last born child who is misbehaving.
“The president said Chatunga(19) is a problem child and undressing him in public may help him reform,” said a senior government official who attended the birthday dinner.
“Last night he arrived home around 0400 hours in the morning and no one knows what he will be doing in town,” Mugabe is reported to have said. Mugabe and Grace have three children, Bona, Robert Jnr and Chatunga. Bona is Mugabe’s favourite who normally accompanies him whenever he goes on his foreign trips.
Bona recently torched a storm after she was introduced as a government minister while Mugabe was in Japan. Robert Jnr is studying Architecture in Dubai. “It is Chatunga whom Mugabe has had problems with,” the source said.
“Last time Mugabe publicly said Chatunga had failed his ordinary levels and is not intelligent like him,” said the source. “He likes clubbing and he is spotted in night clubs around town as well as at Sami Levi,” the source said.
This is not the first time Mugabe had to make very difficult choices.A while ago he chucked Russel Goreraza out of State House after sneaking into Mugabe ‘s bedroom while he was dozing, and grabbed his cellphone and he went to drink. Top CIOs had to be dispatched they they spent the whole night running from one night club to another. He sent Russel packing telling Grace “Mwana wako handichada kumuona pano” .A house was bought for him in Mt Pleasant .
