Mugabe's claim of a Hong Kong rental property came in the wake of reports that tied the Zimbabwean leader to real estate investments in Asia and Europe, The New Zimbabwean said Friday.
"We are paying rent. After they finish we will have nothing to do with that property at all," Mugabe said Thursday of the Hong Kong property.
"What do I do with a house in Hong Kong, really? We just want accommodation for our daughter and her friends," the president added.
The New Zimbabwean said Mugabe also denied owning any other properties outside of Zimbabwe and stated he would never seek political asylum in another country.
"This is not the first time I have been given a home. Last time they gave me a home in Scotland and another one in Malaysia," Mugabe, 85, said.
