Mugabe's Nephew's Home Burns - But Bed is Safe


A fire broke out on Friday at the plush "White House" home of President Robert Mugabe's super-rich nephew - but miraculously his bed was untouched.

Photos have emerged showing a badly gutted bedroom at the mansion of businessman Philip Chiyangwa, 56, in Harare's Borrowdale suburb. But the bed in the corner, complete with beautiful white linen and cushions, appears unscathed.

Chiyangwa's daughter Vanessa told popular website youthvillage.co.zw: "Yes it is true, the house is actually burning as we speak, I am coming from there right now and can confirm the development. Fire brigade had arrived by the time I left."

The official Herald newspaper said in an online update that Chiyangwa, who was seen recently in a video ignoring police roadblocks, had "sustained injuries".
Unconfirmed reports say he may have been hurt by broken glass.

Chiyangwa's white mansion, complete with helipad, is one of Harare's landmarks, second only to Mugabe's pagoda style mansion in nearby Borrowdale Brooke suburb.

"Can someone explain why that bed is intact?" tweeted journalist Nqaba Matshazi.
