In 2017, the son of the late Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe filmed himself pouring a Sh26,000 (£200) bottle of champagne over his Sh6 million (£45,000) diamond watch.

Robert Jr, 25, appeared with his arm draped around a young woman in the club in Sandton, South Africa, where the brothers are based, News 24 reported.

The camera then turned to 21-year-old Chatunga and an unidentified pal, who was seen pouring a gold bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades champagne over his luxury watch.

Chatunga even bragged on social media that he could afford the diamond-encrusted timepiece because "daddy runs the country".

He posted a snap of the watch on his Instagram account with the caption: "$60 000 on the wrist when your daddy run the whole country ya know!!!"

Mugabe's sons hit the headlines in August that year when their mother, Grace Mugabe, allegedly attacked a young woman after discovering her with the boys at a Johannesburg hotel.

 

Gabriella Engels, 20, claimed Mrs Mugabe's guards stood by and did nothing as she was beaten with an extension cord.

Gabriella posted on Twitter: "What is a girl compared to a women beating you and 10+ body guards standing back leaving her to do this s***?"

Grace, who is 41 years younger than her husband, was granted diplomatic immunity in South Africa for the assault.
