Former Zimbabwean minister Saviour Kasukuwere, who fled Zimbabwe last November at the height of a military intervention that resulted in former President Robert Mugabe’s resigning, returned back home on Tuesday.

Eyewitnesses confirmed to Xinhua that the former local government minister in Mugabe’s government arrived at the Robert Mugabe International Airport Tuesday morning, ending six months of self-imposed exile.

Kasukuwere and former higher education minister Jonathan Moyo fled the country after the military launched an intervention that they said was targeting “criminals” around Mugabe.

Kasukuwere and Moyo belonged to a faction in the ruling ZANU-PF party that was supported by former first lady Grace Mugabe and was vying to succeed Mugabe.

Last week, Kasukuwere, the former ZANU-PF political commissar, told the Sunday Times of South Africa that he would return home despite threats of arrest by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government. Enditem
