Former Zimbabwean minister who returned from exile appears in court

Zimbabwe’s former government minister Saviour Kasukuwere was on Friday picked up by police and brought before a Harare Magistrate facing charges of violating the Immigration Act by unlawfully exiting the country, state broadcaster the ZBC reported.

Kasukuwere returned last week after more than six months in self-imposed exile outside Zimbabwe.

Kasukuwere is among members of the G40 faction that went into hiding outside the country following the military intervention that resulted in former president Robert Mugabe resigning in November 2017.

Another member and Kasukuwere’s brother, Dickson Mafios, was on Wednesday sentenced to 11 months in prison with an option of a fine over the same offence.

Mafios was convicted on his own plea of guilty when he appeared before Bindura magistrate Vongai Guwuriro.

He was eventually sentenced to six months in jail with an option to pay a fine of 300 U.S. dollars, while the other five months were suspended on condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years. Enditem
