WHITE TEACHERS DID NOT LIKE US : CHATUNGA


Former president, Robert Mugabe’s son, Chatunga says he faced racism while at school in Harare.

“I don’t want to lie to you, at school right, pane time yausingaiti homework. At times we were also stubborn. At times we could have racist teachers like at St Georges, the white teachers, they didn’t like us, they didn’t like us. But my Maths teachers were different, those are the ones who took time. I actually thought I was not good at Maths but actually, that became my best subject.

“At O Level I have eight subjects and Maths is there. Moms said kana usina kupasa Maths hakuzi kupasa. At A Level, I failed Statistics, yanga yarema. Currently, in am doing business at Genesis in Sandton. It’s my last year, I am actually finishing,” he told H Metro.

On business he said : “My parents actually gave me money; I am not going to lie to you. Yandakaita kugadzira business was my pocket money. My parents used to say ‘we don’t know what’s going to happen, we don’t know whether this will work out or not.

“Both of them were a bit skeptical, they would ask me to show them my plan but you see as parents they are trying to protect the investments but now they are very proud of me.”
Asked what he learnt from his parents: “Brains, nothing else, I have the two smartest parents in the world, you can’t fail to produce.’
