Former Minister of Local Government, Public works and National Housing, Saviour Kasukuwere has been arraigned before a Harare Magistrate facing charges of violating the Immigration Act by unlawfully exiting the country.
Kasukuwere, 47, was granted $300 bail when he appeared before Harare magistrate Josephine Sande who remanded the matter to June 11.
According to State papers, circumstances are that during the period extending from 3 November last year to May 22 this year, Kasukuwere unlawfully exited the country via an unknown point or place which is not an official port of exit.
An analysis on his travelling documents shows that he entered Zimbabwe on November 3 last year.
Further record of travelling shows that he entered Zimbabwe on May 22 this year via Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport.
The court heard that there is no corresponding exit endorsement between 3 November last year and 22 May this year.
The State alleges that this shows that Kasukuwere exited the country via any other place other than a port of exit.
Kasukuwere was represented by Jonathan Samukange of Venturas and Samukange Legal Practioners.
