Revealed: Gideon Gono Does not Own The Heritage School

Former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor Gideon Gono says he doesn’t own The Heritage School, one of the best learning facilities in the country, as previously widely reported.

Various media houses had previously reported that Gono is the owner of the school.

However, Gono said he wanted to acquire a stake in the school three years ago, but the deal didn’t go through.

“I can confirm it had been one of my cherished desires and intentions to own a stake in the school since it was established in the mid-1990s,” Gono said.

“As a family, we came close to acquiring a shareholding in the school in 2017/2018, but that didn’t materialise.

“Therefore, I would like to hereby  categorically state that I don’t own The Heritage School. It doesn’t belong to me,” said Gono.

He says then media houses did not follow up on the issue.

Documents circulating on social obtained show that the upmarket school, located on Heritage Drive, Borrowdale Brooke, in Harare is owned by The Heritage School (Pvt) Ltd which has got six individual shareholders.
