One of President Robert Mugabe’s sons has filmed himself pouring hundreds of pounds worth of champagne over his diamond-encrusted wristwatch.
Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe uploaded the video to Snapchat hours after bragging that he got the £45,000 (about $60,000) timepiece because ‘daddy run the whole country’.
The footage, filmed in a nightclub, shows Chatunga enjoying a life of unimaginable wealth while almost three quarters of the country lives below the poverty line.
Chatunga and his brother Robert Jr, the two sons of Robert and Grace Mugabe, are well-known for their hard partying lives of luxury.
The pair caused an international incident earlier this year while in South Africa, after the disappeared on a wild night out, prompting Mrs Mugabe to go looking for them.
Finding 20-year-old model Gabriella Engels instead, Mrs Mugabe allegedly beat her over the head with an electrical plug when she was unable to say where the boys had gone.
That led to a warrant being issued for her arrest, though she was eventually granted diplomatic immunity and allowed to leave the country.
In the latest incident Chatunga films himself, brother Robert, and friends partying in a nightclub in Sandton, South Africa, where they are based, according to News 24.
Robert is briefly seen with his arm around a girl before the footage cuts to an image of Chatunga’s wrist, complete with watch and gold chain.
While it appears to be the same watch he previously bragged about online, it is not clear because of the champagne already flowing over his arm.
The bottle is Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades gold, which retails for around £200.
A second hand then appears in the frame with another bottle and begins emptying that on the watch too, before both of the empty bottles are displayed for the camera.
More bottles are then displayed on a table before the footage ends.
The video appeared online just weeks after Mrs Mugabe announced she is suing a Lebanese jeweller for failing to deliver a £1million diamond ring she bought to mark her 21st wedding anniversary with the dictator.
Ahmed claims to have received threats from officials from Zimbabwe’s spy agencyas well from Grace herself and her son from her first marriage, Russell Goreraza.
Goreraza himself is also no stranger to a life of luxury, having reportedly imported two Rolls Royce limousines worth £4million into the country recently.
After the vehicles arrived he is said to have thrown a luxurious party which included free-flowing champagne.
Mrs Mugabe is favourite to succeed her 93-year-old husband after he fired his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa over claims of ‘disloyalty’ this week.
Mr Mnangagwa was accused of fanning the flames of unrest after Mrs Mugabe was booed at a rally, before being sacked from his post.
The powerful youth league of the ruling Zanu-PF party quickly endorsed her to replace Mr Mnangagwa, though no announcement has yet been made.
Under Mugabe’s leadership the GDP of Zimbabwe has fallen by almost 50 per cent, according to the United Nations.
The country suffered badly during the recession and experienced hyperinflation and a widespread lack of food and other essentials.
Things have recovered since then, but are still significantly worse than when the family took power.
