ROBERT Mugabe’s younger son, Bellarmine Chatunga, has been expelled from a top private school in Harare for gross indiscipline.

Chatunga, 16, was removed from Form 4 of the Roman Catholic-run St George’s College after repeated clashes with school authorities.

He was suspended from the school for a week last year for bad behaviour. The boy is being taught at home for the time being.

“He was on a last warning and was sent packing for gross indiscipline and insubordination,” sources at the school told the local Daily News. School authorities have not commented.

The president’s elder son, Robert, was also expelled from St George’s College eight years ago, so Chatunga’s exclusion will be a double blow to Mugabe, who is a former teacher with a string of university degrees.

Last year the president lamented publicly that Robert, now 21, failed his A-levels after lying to his parents that he was working hard.

Mr Mugabe said the boy had been nicknamed an “undertaker” after obtaining a string of 
U grades in his final exams.
