    Three people have appeared in court in Zimbabwe, accused of stealing a suitcase containing $150,000 of cash from the country's ousted president, Robert Mugabe.

    The suspected thieves allegedly spent the money on cars, homes and animals.

    A relative of the ex-president, Constantia Mugabe, is among the accused, the government-owned media reports.

    She allegedly had keys to Mr Mugabe's rural home in Zvimba, near the capital Harare, and gave the others access.

    The other suspects were employed as cleaners at the time of the theft, which allegedly happened sometime between December 1 and early January.

    "Johanne Mapurisa bought a Toyota Camry... and a house for $20,000 after the incident," state prosecutor Teveraishe Zinyemba told Chinhoyi magistrates court.

    If it were in Zimbabwe dollars, you'd need a semi tractor trailer to steal $150,000.
