Bona Gives Birth To First Mugabe Grandchild In Dubai

HARARE ‑  Robert Mugabe the 92-year-old Zimbabwean President, is said to be a proud grandpa after daughter Bona gave birth on Saturday, although the sex of the baby could not be immediately verified.

Last week, Mugabe was quoted in the state-run media as saying Bona was heavily pregnant and his wife Grace had travelled to be with their daughter in the East, the destination believed to be Dubai.

That same week, controversial businessman Wicknell Chivayo posted pictures on social media, where he was in the company of Grace and her son Robert Jnr. He said they were having dinner in Dubai.

In January, Bona was spotted heavily pregnant in a pink maternity dress when she appeared at State House where Mugabe was launching a book containing a collection of speeches by Tanzania’s founding president Julius Nyerere. The book is titled Julius Nyerere, Asante Sana, Thank You, Mwalimu.

Bona is married to Simba Chikore, said to be a pilot, and their lavish wedding took place on 1 March 2014. Their traditional marriage took place in Zvimba – Mugabe’s rural home about 96km north west of the capital in August 2013.
