Following his recent acquisition, this individual has become a hot topic on Twitter.
It is reported that the vehicles are being imported from Europe, with the Cullinan already present in Zimbabwe.
- Rolls-Royce Cullinan – R16 million
- Mercedes-Benz Maybach GLS600 – R7 million
Additionally, in April, he indulged his passion for Rolls-Royces by purchasing a 2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost came with a hefty price tag of R13 million.
This isn’t the first time he has made headlines for his car purchases, as he previously bestowed cars upon his religious leaders.
Known for his opulent lifestyle, he is widely recognized as one of Zimbabwe’s wealthiest business moguls.
In recent years, he has made Dubai his preferred playground.
In light of his latest acquisitions, social media has erupted with Zimbabweans filling his comments section with words of admiration.
BUSINESS EMPIRE AND CONTROVERSY
Chivhayo gained recognition when his company, Intratek Zimbabwe, secured numerous government contracts in Zimbabwe.
One significant achievement was in 2017, when he successfully secured a lucrative contract worth millions of rand with the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC).
Nevertheless, Chivhayo’s journey has not been without controversy.
Recently, he faced allegations of misappropriating a substantial sum of $5.6 million (equivalent to R106.27 million) intended for the ambitious 1000MW Gwanda Solar Project.
However, he was recently acquitted of these charges.
Additionally, Chivhayo once provided exclusive sponsorship to the Zimbabwe national football team but later decided to withdraw his support.
