The issues of the rich-poor gap in Africa has never lost its heat. Most recently, a tweet by @Motor_Magnet even sparked an outrage in Zimbabwe. The account posted photos of a Mansory Bugatti Veyron Vivere (Diamond Edition) which is supposed to cost up to $3.5 million (~N1.3b). The supercar was spotted at the Robert Mugabe International Airport.

A user was offended to comment that the photos showed the disconnection between the rich and the Zimbabwean economy. While the country’s suffering low-quality roads full of potholes, someone would drive a super luxury vehicle. He took a figure for reference which stated 90% of the population was unemployed.
However, Motor Magnet stated that it was only in Zimbabwe for the time being and would soon head for South Africa. The reason afterward was revealed that as left-hand-drive vehicles couldn’t be registered in South Africa, the car was brought to Zimbabwe for registration first.

The owner of the Mansory Bugatti Veyron Vivere (Diamond Edition) is believed to be Zunaid Moti, a South African tycoon, and also an associate of Emmerson Mnangagwa, the Zimbabwe President. The man has a hold of a-million dollar-worth chrome mining projects in the country.
