I am not a judge. I am not a policeman. Kasukuwere has decided to come back. Well, that is his decision. He has just come back to where he belongs. Whether there would be other things that you are talking about, it’s a matter of those institutions that deal with such issues and I am not responsible for his coming back or what has happened to him or what is likely to happen to him. What I know is that he is a citizen of this country and we welcome him back in the country. We welcome all our citizens who happen to be outside the country for whatever reason.
