Mugabe ‘lost $1m in stolen briefcase’?

Nearly $1m (£914,000) in cash was stolen from a briefcase belonging to Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe, the state-owned Herald newspaper reports.

Three people appeared in court earlier this month accused of stealing a suitcase containing $150,000.

But according to “updated court documents” seen by the Herald, Mr Mugabe says he lost much more.

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.
