Mugabe’s Assets Up for Auction

Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe is auctioning off five combine harvesters and other farm equipment.  An advert by a local auction firm announced plans to sell off at least 40 of his vehicles, including a luxury car and five Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks. Mr Mugabe was ousted in 2017 after a military takeover. Observers say the sale could be sign that his family’s business empire – including 21 farms – could be in financial trouble. Zimbabwe’s Herald newspaper reported that it was not immediately clear why the family was auctioning the items but its business empire built up during Mr Mugabe’s 37 years in power, has been facing lawsuits over unpaid debts.
