Self exiled former cabinet minister Saviour Kasukuwere is celebrating his 53rd birthday today.

Kasukuwere took to social media to thank God and everyone who has made it successful for him to get through to 53.

“Fifty Three years ago, I was granted an opportunity to be with you all. As I look back, I thank you all my friends who in one way or the other helped me get through the difficult moments. I look into the future with more confidence and determination. I thank the Lord forever.”

Saviour is a Zimbabwean politician who served in the government of Zimbabwe as Minister of Local Government, Rural Development and National Housing between October and November 2017.

In October 2020, the government sought Kasukuwere’s extradition after issuing a warrant for his arrest.
