Zimbabwe has formally asked South Africa to extradite Saviour Kasukuwere, former minister and top ally of former president Robert Mugabe, who is wanted for corruption. The country’s prosecuting authority said Kasukuwere must return home to face trial for illegally parceling out land to former first lady Grace Mugabe’s sister. Kasukuwere, who was the ruling Zanu-PF’s political commissar by the time Mugabe was toppled in 2017, fled to South Africa during the ensuing upheaval in the southern African country. Zimbabwe has also made similar requests for the extradition of Kasukuwere’s colleagues – former ministers Jonathan Moyo and Walter Mzembi – who are accused of abusing their offices, with the alleged theft of state funds.
