President Robert Mugabe’s daughter, Bona, is about to give birth in the Far East.
According to the father, Bona said she wanted to give birth in the same country she went to school in because the doctors who know her very well are also there.
Bona was enrolled at the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS).
Although she did her undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance in Hong Kong, she chose to complete her Masters in Singapore.
Speaking at the home of the late national heroine Victoria Chitepo, President Mugabe said the First Lady Grace Mugabe was a close friend of the late heroine but was unable to attend as she was in the Far East with her daughter Mrs Bona Chikore, who is about to give birth.
“There was such a great friendship between my present wife and Mai Chitepo. I was not able to get her on the phone yesterday; she had to run, vakaenda kumwana, mwanasikana.
“Akati ndoda kuberekera kuno kwandakadzidza. Kunana Chiremba vandinoziva so she is about to give birth. She is about to give birth, it’s a matter of days… She will be heartbroken.”
He added: “I know she (Cde Chitepo) is naturally a hero …
I will never forget her, never forget her generosity, never forget her commitment, never forget her love.
Wherever I am, in my small prayers, I pray to God to receive her with both hands.”
