The Mugabe family took over the land when it was seized from its white owners under controversial land reforms. In 2015 Grace Mugabe forcefully evicted local villagers who had moved on to parts of the farm.

Zimbabwe’s Herald newspaper reported that it was not immediately clear why the family was auctioning the items but its business empire built up during Mr Mugabe’s 37 years in power, has been facing lawsuits over unpaid debts.

Horse trucks, tractors, motor cycles and disc harrows are listed to be sold. In April Mr Robert Mugabe, 95, was in Singapore for medical treatment and was expected back home mid-May, AFP news agency quotes President Emmerson Mnangagwa as saying.
