Under Mugabe’s four-decade rule, few government officials were arrested for corruption. When the military announced it had put Mugabe under house arrest on Nov. 15 2017, it said it was targeting criminals that surrounded the 93-year-old leader.
Since then, three former government ministers and allies of Mugabe have been arrested and charged in court for criminal abuse of office.
