Grace Mugabe admits ‘sleepless nights’ as sons go wild in SA… suspects ‘evil spirits’

By AFP 26 July 2017

Harare – Zimbabwean First Lady Grace Mugabe has reportedly admitted that her two sons – Robert Junior and Chatunga Bellarmine – have become wild and have taken to beer binges and drugs.

According to NewsDay, Grace said that her two sons were giving her “sleepless nights”.

The Mugabe sons made headlines recently after they were evicted from a luxury apartment block in Johannesburg’s affluent Sandton area because of their “unacceptable behavior”.

The boys had been renting a luxury apartment at The Regent apartment hotel, in Morningside, Sandton.

“The boys were usually up during the night partying with different ladies, drinking and smoking,” one unnamed resident was quoted as saying at the time.

“There were almost daily complaints by other tenants about the noise coming from apartment 601 (the Mugabes’ apartment).”

‘I’ve turned to God for wisdom’

Grace, who spoke during her sister’s birthday party in Shamva over the weekend, claimed that demons were at play, destroying children everywhere, a New Zimbabwe.com report said.

“Nowadays there are spirits attacking our children. The spirit of drinking, drug abuse and doing other abnormal things way beyond their age,” the First lady was quoted as saying.

“I am telling you because the behaviour of children does not matter if they are the president’s children or not. All children are mischievous these days.

Grace urged parents not to give up on their children when they became wild, but to soldier on and have faith in God, New Zimbabwe said.

“I have turned to God for wisdom. I ask the Lord for intervention and pray everyday when I wake up,” Grace said.

Grace’s sons relocated to South Africa from Harare and Dubai earlier this year.

Want to watch Richard Poplak’s audition for SA’s Got Talent?

Who doesn’t? Alas, it was removed by the host site for prolific swearing*... Now that we’ve got your attention, we thought we’d take the opportunity to talk to you about the small matter of book burning and freedom of speech.

Since its release, Pieter-Louis Myburgh’s book Gangster State, has sparked numerous fascist-like behavior from certain members of the public (and the State). There have been planned book burnings, disrupted launches and Ace Magashule has openly called him a liar. And just to say thanks, a R10m defamation suit has been lodged against the author.

Pieter-Louis Myburgh is our latest Scorpio Investigative journalist recruit and we’re not going to let him and his crucial book be silenced. When the Cape Town launch was postponed, Maverick Insider stepped in and relocated it to a secure location so that Pieter-Louis’ revelations could be heard by the public. If we’ve learnt one thing over the past ten years it is this: when anyone tries to infringe on our constitutional rights, we have to fight back. Every day, our journalists are uncovering more details and evidence of State Capture and its various reincarnations. The rot is deep and the threats, like this recent one to freedom of speech, are real. You can support the cause by becoming an Insider and help free the speech that can make a difference.

*No video of Richard Poplak auditioning for SA’s Got Talent actually exists. Unless it does and we don’t know about it please send it through.
