Goreraza, born to Grace Mugabe when she was married to her first husband, Stanley Goreraza, has a fast-living reputation. It is reported that he celebrated with friends at the weekend in Zimbabwe, sipping on French Champagne.

This acquisition comes as Zimbabwe is struggling to pay its debts to various South African government and state enterprises. Goreraza has told friends in Harare that his next vehicle, due to arrive in the Zimbabwean capital shortly, was an Aston Martin.

Gorereza was previously involved in an alleged illegal gold-mining venture and was also found guilty of culpable homicide two years ago. He had been speeding in his luxury car and killed a pedestrian in Harare.

According to IOl News, insiders in Harare said he lived off massive cash donations from his mother, who is regularly paid out with public funds from that country's treasury and the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, as well as her bank account at the Central Bank of Zimbabwe.
