Chatunga Bellamine Mugabe, eldest son of Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, by his second wife, Grace, has dared the Military, saying his dad cannot be fired. Robert Mugabe’s son.

Bellamine posted a message on his social media page on Sunday morning, just before his dictator father refused to step down.

Chatunga and Robert Jr are known for their party-hard lifestyle funded by their father’s money which they regularly flaunt on social media. Just after, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe made a broadcast to his people on Sunday night, but he did the unexpected: he did not resign as widely expected.

Robert Mugabe’s sonInstead he said he would preside over a ZANU-PF congress next month even though the ruling party had removed him as its leader hours earlier. The broadcast was witnessed by the military leaders who had taken control of Zimbabwean affairs, but who kept denying that they had executed a coup. ZANU-PF had given the 93-year-old less than 24 hours to quit as head of state or face impeachment, an attempt to secure a peaceful end to his tenure after a de facto coup.

Mugabe said in a address on state television that he acknowledged criticism against him from ZANU-PF, the military and the public, but did not comment on the possibility of standing down.

“The (ruling ZANU-PF) party congress is due in a few weeks and I will preside over its processes,” Mugabe said.

Robert Mugabe’s sonSpeaking slowly and occasionally stumbling as he read from the pages, Mugabe talked of the need for solidarity to resolve national problems — business-as-usual rhetoric that he has deployed over decades. He made no reference to the chorus calling for him to resign and shrugged off last week’s dramatic military intervention.

“The operation I have alluded to did not amount to a threat to our well-cherished constitutional order nor did it challenge my authority as head of state, not even as commander in chief. Whatever the pros and cons of how they (the army) went about their operation, I… do acknowledge their concerns,” said Mugabe.

It was widely thought that Mugabe would have no choice but to go after the army seized power, opened the floodgates of citizen protest and his once-loyal party told him to quit. His speech suggested he was unfazed by the turmoil.
