Mugabe’s tractors, trucks to be auctioned to pay off debts
Among more than 40 vehicles to be sold are four Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks, three Scania horse trucks and a Mercedes Benz C-class limousine.
Also for sale are Massey Ferguson tractors, 13 motorcycles and farm equipment, including four combine harvesters.
“Duly instructed by our most valued client we shall sell by public auction vehicles and farm equipment at Gushungo Dairy Farm on Saturday,” the auctioneer Ruby Auctions said in a newspaper notice inviting bidders to the sale on the farm.
The privately-owned NewsDay daily this week quoted a sales executive at the farm bemoaning dwindling sales and saying the company was operating at 58% of its capacity.
Cassim Asani was quoted as saying worsening economic troubles in Zimbabwe had forced locals to cut back on buying.
Last month Mnangagwa said Mugabe, 95, was in Singapore for medical treatment and was expected back home mid-May.
