Mu­gabe’s sons are still hav­ing fun in SA

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - LESEGO MAKGATHO

WHILE their par­ents were ne­go­ti­at­ing the fu­ture of Zim­babwe, it was business and fun as usual for the Mu­gabe boys.

Chatunga Bel­larmine Mu­gabe took to Face­book and posted about bring­ing top Nige­rian mu­si­cian and song­writer Au­gus­tine Miles Kelechi, aka Te­kno, to per­form at the Harem night­club in Rose­bank last night.

Te­kno was meant to start his tour in Zim­babwe on Fri­day at the Alexan­dra Sports Club in Harare but the show was can­celled, ac­cord­ing to the 21-year-old’s Face­book post. “Te­kno Zim Show Can­celled! It is with re­gret and sad­ness that Triplife En­ter­tain­ment an­nounces the can­cel­la­tion of its high-pro­file gig fea­tur­ing Nige­rian Star, Te­kno.

“After do­ing ev­ery­thing in our power to en­sure that all was set for the artist’s de­but per­for­mance in Harare on Novem­ber 24, un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances be­yond our con­trol in­ter­fered and jeop­ar­dised the event.”

In­de­pen­dent Me­dia spent much of the week out­side the homes of Robert ju­nior, 25, and Chatunga Bel­larmine, 21, in Sand­hurst try­ing to as­cer­tain if they are still in South Africa.

This fol­lowed a week where their par­ents – Pres­i­dent Robert Mu­gabe and his wife Grace – were holed up in their home in Harare while their coun­try­men took to the streets call­ing for their nona­ge­nar­ian leader to step down after 37 years in power.

In Sand­hurst, Sand­ton, the cou­ple’s two sons were en­sconced in the comfort of their brother Rus­sell Gor­eraza’s house be­hind high walls under tight se­cu­rity, seem­ingly obliv­i­ous to the drama around their par­ents. There was deathly si­lence out­side the house, and its high walls made it dif­fi­cult to see who was in­side the yard. No cars ar­rived or left the premises. In­stead the news team was tailed by a car that was parked on the pave­ment next to the house.

A min­der/body­guard de­nied hav­ing seen or spo­ken to the boys who are fa­mous for par­ty­ing up a storm. They were re­cently recorded jump­ing and som­er­sault­ing on top of parked cars out­side the Cubana Club in Four­ways.
