Video: Mugabe’s son appears in Court

A son of Robert Mugabe, the former leader of Zimbabwe, has been taken to court on suspicion of causing property damage at a party in Harare.

According to State media, 31-year-old Robert Mugabe Junior allegedly destroyed some cars and property at a party in Harare over the weekend.

According to a tweet from the police, he was detained as a result of a complaint from his friend, Sindiso Nkatazo, who is also 31.

He was detained at Avondale Police overnight and appeared in court on Monday.

The police say the damaged property was valued at $12,000 (£10,000).

Former President Robert Mugabe died in 2019 at the age of 95, two years after being forced to resign following 37 years in power.
