An expensive flight in a long-range luxury business jet has helped to heal the rift between President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the Mugabe family.
Mnangagwa chartered a brand-new $15,000-an-hour Gulfstream to fly Grace Mugabe home from Singapore after the death on August 30 of her mother, Idah Marufu.
Described as "one of the most coveted aircraft among the global travelling elite", the plane can travel up to speeds of 956km/h.
The former first lady told mourners at her 83-year-old mother's wake this week: "I have never boarded such a plane. The crew told me that I was the first person to board it. It is my dream plane. I felt comforted."
