Despite his efforts to maintain a level of privacy, Chivayo has not hesitated to showcase the mansion on social media, sharing glimpses of its grandeur and sophisticated features.

This acquisition has stirred significant public interest, highlighting Chivayo’s penchant for luxury and his ability to secure high-value properties. The mansion’s previous owner, Augustine Chihuri, fled Zimbabwe after the 2017 coup and has been fighting legal battles to retain his assets, which the state claims were acquired through illicit means.
