Harare denies VP resignation

HARARE – The Zimbabwean government last night rejected as “false and malicious” media reports that Vice-President Joice Mujuru had resigned.

In its lead story yesterday, the United Kingdom-based The Zimbabwean newspaper said Mujuru tendered her resignation letter to President Robert Mugabe about two weeks ago.

The newspaper said Mugabe had however turned down Mujur’s resignation.

Mujuru, who was until last month considered among the front-runners to succeed Mugabe, is said to have fallen out with the veteran President following Mugabe’s statement that he would seek re-election next year.
