Chiwenga’s mansion goes viral on social media

MailOnline photographed the nearby palatial home of General Constantino Chiwenga, the ex-commander of Zimbabwe’s armed forces, who spearheaded the Mnangagwa’s takeover.

Chiwenga's mansion goes viral on social media

Located just down the road from both Blue Roof and Mr. Mnangagwa’s home, the general’s white mansion, which is built on modernist design principles and sits on the crest of a hill, dominates the area.

Augustine Chihuri, Zimbabwe’s ex-chief of police, also has a luxury home in Borrowdale. The close proximity of all of these properties underscores how power in Zimbabwe is held by a small and hugely influential elite.

The ‘C’ stands for ‘Constantino’ and the ‘M’ for ‘Mary’, after his wife.

Chiwenga’s soldiers were recently recorded questioning where ex-Local Government, Public Works and National Housing counterpart, Mr Saviour Kasukuwere got money to build his mansion. It is unclear whether Chiwenga’s civil service salary can afford such opulence.
