Property developer lurches onto Simba, Bona divorce settlement

Lawyers representing Arosume Property Development (Pvt) Limited, Jiti Law Chambers have called for an investigation into how Simba Chikore and Bona Mugabe acquired vast amounts of land totalling 213 794 square metres in Carrick Creagh despite Government policy that dictates that one person cannot receive more than one residential stand within the same local authority from the State.

The firm is threatening legal action if the two fail to remove the properties from their divorce case in 10 working days.

For several years, Arusome has been in a legal battle with the Mugabes and then Local Government Minister Ignatious Chombo used their political clout to transfer stands from the development to companies they controlled without paying for that land.

The attorneys believs Chikore purposefully left out the Carrick Creagh properties “for purposes unrelated to the distribution requested before the court.”

Arosume Property Development reported the ownership of various pieces of land in Carrick Creagh Estate by the couple to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) in 2017, although not much movement has been recorded in the case.

The divorce of the daughter of Zimbabwe’s late ruler Robert Mugabe has lifted the lid on the massive wealth amassed by the ex-president’s family, with court papers listing properties worth millions of dollars.

Bona Mugabe, 33, filed for divorce from her husband of nine years, Chikore, a former airline pilot, earlier this year.
