  • Description

    THE PRESIDENT OF CONGO-KINSHASA, GENERAL MOBUTU, HAS BOUGHT A KING-SIZE HOUSE IN THE SWISS VILLAGE OF SAVIGNY. IT'S A 10-YEAR-OLD HOUSE, BOUGHT IN A PRIVATE DEAL WITH A SWISS MILLIONAIRE PRECISION INSTRUMENT MANUFACTURER, M. JEAN MULLER.

    NEITHER PARTY IS SAYING HOW MUCH IT COST, BUT ESTATE AGENTS IN THE AREA SAY IT'S WORTH AT LEAST GBP100,000. MOBUTU INSPECTED HIS HOUSE WHEN HE STOPPED OFF IN SWITZERLAND ON HIS WAY TO BRUSSELS EARLY IN JUNE.

    THE CONGOLESE EMBASSY IN BERNE SAID IT WAS A PRIVATE PURCHASE OF A HOLIDAY HOME, BUT THEY KNEW NOTHING MORE. THE TWO STOREY HOUSE HAS 30 ROOMS AND A THREE CAR GARAGE. THE 12 ACRES OF GROUNDS, WHICH OVERLOOK LAKE GENEVA, INCLUDES A PRIVATE WOOD, SWIMMING POOL AND CHALET.
