Zimbabwean former first lady Grace Mugabe’s ally has reportedly been arrested on charges of criminal abuse of office during his two tenures as a minister under former president Robert Mugabe’s era.
According to the state-owned Chronicle newspaper, Saviour Kasukuwere spent a night in prison on Monday on four counts of criminal abuse of office.
He was, however, freed on $3 000 bail, coupled with some strict bail conditions on Tuesday, New Zimbabwe reported.
Harare magistrate Hosiah Mujaya ordered him to surrender his passport and title deeds to his house in Nyanga, report to police once a week and not to interfere with state witnesses, the report said.
Kasukuwere was facing three counts of criminal abuse of office during his tenure as local government minister and another count as indigenisation minister.
