Controversial Zimbabwean businessman Wicknell Chivhayo, known for his close ties to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, has recently acquired a new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class valued at R3.5 million, a car renowned for its ultimate luxury.

This purchase coincides with Chivhayo's involvement in a dubious US$40 million tender with the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, amidst ongoing disputes with disgruntled business partners.

Chivhayo boasts a collection of luxury cars, opulent mansions, expensive jewelry, and numerous other high-value assets, positioning him among the few Zimbabweans living extravagantly in a country rife with poverty.

He has also been donating cars to select Zanu-PF supporters and sympathizers, spending approximately US$3 million on this politically charged initiative.

Chivhayo's strategic proximity to Mnangagwa has enabled him to secure lucrative tenders, establishing himself as a prominent, high-spending tenderpreneur on a significant scale.

How the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is described by automobile experts:

Expressively individual. Expressly assertive. Exquisitely confident.

Sending handcrafted V12 torque to all four wheels, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class advances first-class travel to new heights, and well by an extraordinarily comfortable lead.
