Zimbabwe's late President Robert Mugabe did not own any of the properties listed as being part of his estate in an article published in a state-owned newspaper, but he did own vintage cars, his lawyer Terrence Hussein has said.

Mugabe's daughter Bona Chikowore wrote to the Master of the High Court in October, listing her father's estate as including $10m (£7.7m) in a local bank, 10 cars, four houses in the capital, Harare, his rural homestead, an orchard and a farm, the Herald newspaper reported.

Mr Hussein said none of the properties listed were in Mugabe's name.

"The Zvimba homestead is communal land and no title exists. It is state land.The Glen Lorne and Mount Pleasant properties [in Harare] are registered in the name of Zanu-PF," he said, referring to the ruling party.

"The 10 cars are a vintage car collection which frankly had value only to him," Mr Hussein added.

Mugabe - who ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years until he was ousted in 2017 - died in a Singapore hospital in September at the age of 95.
