After claiming that his ailing vice president was never witched or poisoned but just another sick man, President Robert Mugabe on Saturday sensationally claimed that his deputy is a devil within blaming him for haunting and  persecuting former VP Simon Muzenda.

Speaking at the Heroes Acre, Mugabe said the late Muzenda exposed Mnangagwa for allegedly chasing the elder VP out of Gweru and he ended up relocating to his home area, Masvingo.

Mugabe said later they moved to Gweru and Muzenda complained that boys from Gweru pestered him to go back to his own home area.

“I asked who are those and he told me, Emmerson and others. That is how he went back and he started working from Masvingo together with the likes of Josaya Hungwe,” said Mugbe.
