PHILLIP Chiyangwa is never shy to celebrate his success and publicly flaunt his wealth. And in keeping with that tradition, the flambouyant Harare businessman and politician has just taken delivery of a monstrous custom-made limousine, adding to the already large and expensively assembled list of luxury cars in the garage of his Borrowdale mansion.
“I’m living my life … this car probably cost me more than half a million dollars … and this is just a transformer – I have also acquired a jet,” Chiyangwa in an interview Sunday. “This is the first of its kind … and the last one; they (manufacturers) only made this one.”
He mounts a robust defence when asked whether it is not insensitive for a politician to be splashing millions on luxury cars when the majority of Zimbabweans are barely managing to get one meal per day.
