Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has been sued for wrongful dismissal by two former ruling party senior officials.
The pair were expelled from the party in December and February for allegedly supporting a plot against him.
Ruagare Gumbo and Didymus Mutasa have filed papers in the High Court of Zimbabwe seeking an order to reinstate them into Zanu-PF.
Mr Gumbo told the Press that President Mugabe was a “dictator” and that he should step down.
In an unprecedented move, they are seeking that the court also strike down reforms that President Mugabe brought in at the party conference last December.
If successful, the president”s two former stalwarts would call for an extraordinary congress of the party where a new leader could be elected to replace the 91 year old.BBC
