President Robert Mugabe this week said that his 15-year-old son Bellarmine Chatunga harbours presidential ambitions.

In a series of ongoing interviews exclusively granted to the State-controlled media, Mugabe admitted his son was eyeing the countrys top job.

"Bellarmine always says I want to be president and so on, but I say you must pass, you see, the President, your father, how many degrees does he hold? Can you do that?" said Mugabe.

Chatunga is going to be writing his Form 4 this year, writing exams this year.

Mugabe has two other children, Bona (23) and Robert (Jnr) (19).

The 88-year-old ruler said Bona was the most serious among his children.

"So Bona is the most serious of them all. She loves to do a Masters and be a chartered accountant, but she wants to do a Masters first. It takes a year, but she is with a chartered firm now," he said.

Mugabe also disclosed that Robert had flunked his A Levels.

The Mugabe family has dominated the political landscape in the country. At one stage, the family had three MPs in the august House Mugabes sister Sabina and her sons, Leo Mugabe and Patrick Zhuwawo.
