Harare businessman and Robert Mugabe’s cousin Philip Chiyangwa has snatched another honorary doctorate barely two years after receiving his first by a Philippines based money spinning syndicate.
Zimbabwe Today can reveal Chiyangwa was today capped once again at an albeit poorly attended ceremony at Crown Plaza Hotel in Harare.
Enrico Sibanda, the IIP Chief Representative who handed the award, described Chiyangwa as a philanthropist who deserves it for his outstanding work.
The ceremony is unlikely to go well with Chiyangwa’s employees many who include vulnerable disabled workers who have gone for years without a salary at a time when Chiyangwa was busy squandering millions on expensive cars and lavish parties around the country. He recently bought his wife a cellphone made of pure 24 carat gold.

The two are both nephews to President. R. G. Mugabe. The official graduation ceremony was held today at 8am – 10 am, at Crown Plaza Hotel, Harare.
