Three people accused of stealing a suitcase containing 150 thousand dollars from Zimbabwe’s ousted President, Robert Mugabe have appeared in court.
The suspected thieves allegedly spent the money on cars, homes and animals.
Reports say a relative of the former president, Constantia Mugabe, is among the accused persons.
She allegedly had keys to Mr Mugabe’s rural home in Zvimba, near the capital Harare, and gave the others access.
The other suspects were employed as cleaners at the time of the theft, which allegedly happened sometime between 1st December, 2018 and early January this year.
“Johanne Mapurisa bought a Toyota Camry… and a house for $20,000 after the incident,” state prosecutor Teveraishe Zinyemba told Chinhoyi magistrates court.
“Saymore Nhetekwa also bought a Honda… and livestock which included pigs and cattle for an undisclosed amount.”
Mr Mugabe, now 94, was forced out of office by Zimbabwe’s military in 2017.
Up to that point, he had been in power for 37 years, first as prime minister and later as president.
Once famously claiming that a country could never go bankrupt, he was accused of enjoying a lavish lifestyle while presiding over Zimbabwe’s economic collapse.
