What Extradition Treaty Means for Mnangagwa Foes In South Africa

Zimbabwe has secured an extradition treaty with South Africa and will soon evoke the order to bring home some former Zanu-PF rivals based in that country to face prosecution on corruption charges, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said. The former Cabinet ministers who were part of the once-influential G40 faction of Zanu-PF, once involved in an intense rivalry with Mnangagwa's faction, fled Zimbabwe when the now late Robert Mugabe was toppled as president in November 2017. The exiled group that includes Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao, has said that they fear persecution at the hands of Mnangagwa.
