The former president's family has been off limelight following the highly publicised death and funeral of Ex-president Robert Mugabe. It was great respect and honour to give the family time and space to grieve peacefully.
However, the silence has been broken by the 'ex' first son of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe Jr. No one can say it's bad noise though as it is just him letting the world know that life goes on. Recently he has come back on social media showing off his girlfriend whom many are already labeling 'daughter in-law of Zimbabwe'. Others are saying this title no longer apply as Robert Mugabe Jr is not the first son of Zimbabwe nomore following his father's ousting from power and his later death on September 6, 2019 in Singapore.
Speaking of Singapore, Robert Mugabe Jr was recently in the Asian country with his model girlfriend on what they termed 'baecation'.
Who is the lucky 'Mrs Mugabe-to-be'?
Her name is Hillary Makaya and she is one of the youngest and highly paid models in Zimbabwe. At the age of 17 in 2016, she won the Miss Teen World Heritage. In 2018 she went on to win Miss Zimbabwe Intercontinental. She is indeed an African beauty.
This is not the first time Robert Mugabe Jr has dated a model. He used to date South African model Tshego Moloto who went public that she was heart-broken when her relationship to Robert ended. There were rumours that he cheated on her. Is Hillary the one to wear the crown, well, only time will tell.
Many eyes are on Robert. He was voted among the hottest Zimbabwean men and top five among the most influential young people in Zimbabwe by the Zimbabwe Research Institution. Born February 4, 1992 Robert Jr is the first son and second child of Grace and Robert Mugabe. Robert plays basketball and in 2015 he was part of the Zimbabwe Basketball Team to represent Zimbabwe at the Africa Basketball Championship in Tunisia. In 2017 together with his young brother Chatunga they moved to South Africa from Dubai and were renting in an apartment in Sandton City estimated to be 74,000 rands per month. It was also in South Africa where Grace Mugabe, his mother stormed the hotel they were partying and beat up a girl named Gabriella Engels for messing around with her sons.
Has Hillary won the heart of Queen Mother? Well, whether she has or not, she is here now and that's what is important. Young beautiful love.
