Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s youngest son has taken to social media to praise his father‚ claiming that the ruling party could not survive without the 93-year-old leader.
“You can’t fire a revolutionary leader! Zanu-PF is nothing without President Mugabe‚” said a post on Facebook by Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe.
This was posted shortly after Zanu-PF announced that it was firing his father as party leader on Sunday.
Only a handful of people responded positively to the post‚ with most – believed to be Zimbabwean nationals – suggesting the young Mugabe should ready himself for change.
“It’s over young man… learn to accept it‚” wrote one Facebook user.
It was not immediately clear where the Mugabe sons are. They have spent the past few months living an apparently lavish life in Sandton‚ Johannesburg. Pictures and videos of them in expensive designer clothing and jewellery‚ as well nights of alcohol-fueled escapades in high-end nightclubs‚ have made rounds on social media.
