Zimbabwe ex-minister found guilty.

Critics accuse Mr Mugabe of using the anti-corruption drive as a witch-hunt.Former Zimbabwe Finance Minister Chris Kuruneri has been found guilty of breaking Zimbabwe's citizenship laws.
The country does not recognise dual citizenship, but Mr Kuruneri - who is on trial for corruption - admitted travelling on a Canadian passport.
He is accused of illegally channelling funds abroad to buy a mansion in South Africa, which his lawyers dismiss as "mere speculation".
Mr Kuruneri was arrested last year at the height of an anti-corruption drive. He has spent more than a year in custody and is the most senior official to have been prosecuted during the campaign, launched by President Robert Mugabe.
