Yesterday after days of house arrest and attempting to mobilize his cabinet, Zimbabwe’s dictator Robert Mugabe finally resigned.
Mugabe’s regime has been notorious for its corruption, those who are loyal to the dictator have been rewarded handsomely with money, property and government contracts. By extension their kids have also been living the high life. There are two sisters dubbed ‘Zimbabwean Kardashians’, the rich kids of Zimbabwe prove that posting your tens of millions online is essential social media viewing.
The picture below shows Vanessa Chironga, one of the so-called ‘Zimbabwe Kardashians’ – daughters of property mogul and politician Philip Chiyangwa, a ‘nephew’ of Mugabe, who is worth $280 million
Robert Mugabe Junior turned up in a black Batmobile while studying American Architecture in Dubai. He flaunted it to his 23,000 Instagram followers.
Mugabe sons regularly show of the wealth on various social media outlets, even bragging about benefiting from their dad’s control of the country.
Wicknell Chivayo(pictured below) is the richest of the ‘kids’ in Zimbabwe and he isn’t shy in letting you know. His excuse for buying custom-made cars is that ‘I fit comfortably, the seats are easily adjustable’ for his ample frame.
The most disturbing feature of these pictures is that 95% of Zimbabweans live way below the poverty line, and the nations is only second to Congo, being the world’s second poorest nation.
