Two former ministers in Mugabe’s cabinet appeared in court on corruption charges almost a year after the former president of Zimbabwe was ousted from power. Following the present government’s stance of cracking down on corruption, former Minister of Information, Communication and Technology SupaMandiwanzira is facing two graft charges involving $5M (4.4m Euros). The former Local Government, Youth and Environment Minister, Saviour Kasukuwere, is also charged with illegally parcelling out land worth $2m to former first lady Grace Mugabe’s sister. Mugabe’s son in-law, Simba Chikore, was also arraigned on kidnapping charge over an alleged detention of an airline official.
Since Mugabe’s fall, several of his allies have been arrested.
