Mugabe Gives Sister-In-Law $60k Birthday Gift

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has given his sister-in-law $60,000 (£46,000) as a birthday gift, the state-owned Herald newspaper reports.

It says that the gift was to thank Junior Gumbochuma, who is the first lady's eldest sister, for helping with Mr Mugabe's children.

Mrs Gumbochuma is a pastor and the Herald reports that the president used the opportunity of her birthday celebrations to criticise Pentecostal preachers who make money from their congregants by stage-managing miracles.

Zimbabwe's economy is currently struggling to grow and the country is experiencing a cash shortage.
