First Lady, Grace Mugabe, has splashed $4 million mansion next to her Blue Roof in Borrowdale.
The Independent reports that Mugabe recently paid more than $4m for a property of about 48.5 hectares in the heart of Borrowdale, close to the mansion which the First Family built for about $10m, and where they choose to
live rather than in the smaller, colonial era State House.
The Teede family who sold their Borrowdale property to a company controlled by Mugabe did not want to discuss the sale of their land.
Jan Teede said the cash from the sale had been paid into the trust fund of the estate agent who concluded the “long” and “difficult” deal. “I do not want to discuss this,” he said.
Another resident, who asked not to be named,said: “The Teedes probably decided to sell their home and land to Grace Mugabe because they feared she would take it if they refused. We understand Grace Mugabe wants this property to develop many upmarket homes in a security estate.”
