Zim­babwe's Mu­gabe sacks pros­e­cu­tor gen­eral

Sunday Observer - - NEWS - HARARE Reuters

- Zim­bab­wean Pres­i­dent Robert Mu­gabe sacked Ray Goba as the coun­try’s top pros­e­cu­tor on Fri­day six weeks af­ter ap­point­ing him, a gov­ern­ment no­tice said. Mu­gabe, 93, gave no rea­son for the de­ci­sion. Goba was ap­pointed when Vice Pres­i­dent Em­mer­son Mnan­gagwa was in charge of the jus­tice min­istry, which over­sees the of­fice of the pros­e­cu­tor gen­eral. Mnan­gagwa, seen as a po­ten­tial suc­ces­sor to Mu­gabe, was stripped of the min­istry of jus­tice in a Cabi­net reshuf­fle on Oc­to­ber 9.
