Zimbabwe’s vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday fought back against allegations by hos co-deputy that he lied about being poisoned, in a row that displays the growing political in-fighting ahead of next year’s election. 


Mnangagwa has been accused by fellow vice-president Phelekezela Mphoko of undermining President Robert Mugabe by claiming to have been poisoned during a ruling ZANU-PF rally in August.

Mnangagwa, 75 is one of the favourites to succeed Mugabe, while Mphoko is seen as having no plans to run for the leadership.
Mnangagwa was flown to South Africa for emergency treatment after falling ill at the ZANU-PF party rally in the southern town of Gwanda on August 12.
Some supporters claimed he had been given poisoned ice cream in an attempt to kill him.
Mugabe, 93, has maintained strict discipline over his government for decades, but the public dispute has exposed growing in-fighting over who will eventually succeed him.
