See inside photos of former Zimbabwean President's $10m Blue House mansion

The 25-bedroom private house was reportedly constructed by a Serbian construction firm in 2003.

Despite becoming the leader of the country amid a wave of public support all the way back in 1980, Mugabe has been forced out of power in disgrace with many corruption allegations trailing his government.

With the president reportedly worth more than $1 billion while ruling one of the world's poorest countries, it's no wonder a lot of people wanted him gone.

One of the president's most high profile display of extravagant wealth is his construction of the famous lavish "Blue House"/"Blue Roof" property located around 16 miles north of Zimbabwe's capital, Harare.

According to The Zimbabwean, the 25-bedroom private house was reportedly constructed by a Serbian construction firm for an estimated sum of $10 million in 2003.

The palace has two lakes in its 44-acre landscaped grounds and is protected by a multi-million pounds radar system.

Mugabe is reported to have used donations from his Zanu PF party and well-wishers to build the extravagant residence.

Mugabe also reportedly purchased a $5.2million mansion in Hong Kong in 2013 as well as another Hamilton Palace in Sussex, UK, which was estimated to be worth about $40million before it became a construction site.
