The President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa, said he suspect a group of people linked to the former first lady was behind an attempt on his life.
two people died and more than 40 were hurt in an explosion near Mr Mnangagwa at a rally in Bulawayo on Saturday.
Mrs Mugabe’s Husband, Robert Mugabe was removed from the power last year.
Widespread Suspicion that Mrs Mugabe intended to succeed her husband as the country’s leader was a contributing factor to the political transition, and the army’s involvement in it.
“I don’t know whether it was one individual, i would think it s aÂ broader than one person. i would think this is a political action by some aggrieved people” he said.
The faction supporting Mrs Mugabe was known as Generation 40 or G40.
Mr Mnangagwa described Mrs Mugabe as someone who had frequently insulted him in the past.
“On what basis would I trust someone who was used by a cabal to say things that had no basis,” he said.
Despite the apparent attempt on his life, Mr Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe was stable and that foreign investors should not worry.
There would be no countrywide security clampdown and elections scheduled for next month would go ahead in a free and fair manner, he said
