Zimbabwe’s vice president has denied reports that she is planning to assassinate President Robert Mugabe.
Vice President Joice Mujuru issued a statement last night following a report in The Sunday Mail, a state-run newspaper.
It linked her to an alleged plot to kill the 90-year-old president but she said it is false and she is ready to defend herself in court if necessary.
Political factions are manoeuvring for influence ahead of the annual ruling party congress next month.
Ms Mujuru has come under repeated verbal attacks from Mr Mugabe’s wife, Grace.
