The whereabouts of Robert Mugabe’s eldest son Tino Robert Jnr Mugabe have been kept private by the first family, compared to state media hype that surrounded Bona Mugabe who the first couple is most proud of among their three kids.
He is usually absent on important national occasions, including his father’s 21st February movement lately. He was also conspicously missing when the family was interviewed by Dali Tambo for the People of the South program.
However, in a move seen as shooting himself in the foot, Robert Jnr shot a video with the Kobe Bryant in Dubai programme. Apparently Robert Jnr is studying Architecture at the American University in Dubai (AUD) where he is still following his Basketball passion. Robert Jnr dismally failed both his O’ and A Levels with his father teasing him saying he was an Undertaker, Zimbabwean colloquial for obtaining “Ungraded” or “U” symbol in the local ZIMSEC Exams. The young man has taken from his mother being slow of wit and having a ferocious appetite for fashion. He loves flashy hairstyles, expensive clothes and flashy gadgets.
