Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe’s nephew, Patrick Zhuwao, says he is proud to have served in his uncle’s governments, but says he won’t be returning to Zimbabwe soon as his safety isn’t guaranteed.
Zhuwao, who was in South Africa and on his way back to Zimbabwe when he got wind of last month’s military takeover, said his farm had been looted and his workers beaten.
"When one looks at attacks launched on my farm and farm workers who were frog-marched and severely beaten just for working for me, it is enough evidence that my safety is not guaranteed," Zhuwao told the private Standard newspaper in a phone interview from South Africa.
