This plush mansion in the Chief Mapanzure area, near Lundi Primary School in Zvishavane is owned by Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Nehanda Radio understands the Zanu PF Secretary for Legal Affairs and MP for the (2008 created) Chirumanzi–Zibagwe rural constituency hardly lives there and instead a large team of security personnel protect the house 24 hours a day.

The location of the house is significant in that Mnangagwa completed his early education up to (then) Standard 4 at Lundi Primary School in the Mnangagwa Village, the same area that he has constructed this multi-million dollar mansion.

A brave Nehanda Radio Citizen Reporter could only take this shot of the house because of the tight security around it.

He told us Mnangagwa’s neighbours live in shacks and that he “drilled a borehole in a neighbour’s yard, installed an electric pump which is caged and takes water into his house. Even the neighbour has no access to that water.”

A United Nations report accused Mnangagwa of looting mineral resources in the DRC alongside the late army commander Vitalis Zvinavashe and Zimbabwean-backed entrepreneurs John Bredenkamp and Al-Shanfari, a “convicted criminal based in South Africa.”

Mugabe unilaterally sent troops into the DRC in 1998 to help his ally, the late Laurent Kabila, hold of a rebel advance. The conflict sucked in several SADC states and saw senior army officers and ZANU PF chefs enrich themselves “under the pretext of arrangements set up to repay Zimbabwe for military services.”

    Hapana mansion as compared with what we see in East Africa. He did nothing. It is just a normal house which is painted and has an upstairs.

    This is a blatant lie. I live a few kilometers from his mansion…. Water is free for everyone and when he comes to the rural area everyone is invited and gathers around his house drinking that awful traditional beer and sometimes he offers us meet. When he is not around people can still get water but we are not allowed inside. And there are not close neighbours nearby. MANYEPO MANYEPO VEDUWE!!!
    No wonder our journalism sector is in shambles
