Leo Mugabe: family values

A nephew of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has been arrested on suspicion of illegally exporting flour to Mozambique, say the police.

Illegal exports are among the reasons given for food shortages that leaves a third of people dependent on food aid.

Leo has always acted as front for his uncle’s illegal activities, financial havens and scams of various nature. He was kicked out of the Zimbabwe Football Association in 2002 for misappropriation of funds but quickly cleared.

It is interesting to note that The Herald (a government mouthpiece) has had to publish the news; of course it conveniently omitted to mention family ties.

Would it be too optimistic to think that, this time, someone is trying to hit Mugabe by proxy?
