A few weeks ago I wrote a post on Leo Mugabe, nephew of the obnoxious president of Zimbabwe, who had been arrested for smuggling (illegal export) of foodstuff to Mozambique. Whatever happened to the poor guy?

A nephew of President Robert Mugabe, who allegedly violated grain laws and the Customs and Excise Act by illegally exporting scarce wheat to Mozambique, walked out of court a free man yesterday after the state declined to prosecute.

Smuggling food during a famine should carry a life sentence.

Withdrawing charges against Leo Mugabe and his wife and co-accused, Veronica, state prosecutors said they did not have evidence to mount a case against the couple, adding that the President's nephew and his wife might be summoned back to court if new evidence cropped up.

It won't.
