“One of the witchdoctors said look for two tadpoles of different colours one should be named (President) Mugabe and the other should be called (Ms) Mujuru and put them in water,”
“That’s what happened. “They were made to fight and if (President) Mugabe’s tadpole dies then she will rule. Now if mine won against yours, it seems that is what happened then,
“I go to elections, fight an election and I am expected to bow to my deputy and say I won an election, you can take over?Did I not hear that or read that this man was going to die in September. But the man refused to die in that September and is still refusing to die,”
In a statement, she said
‘A vociferous attempt has been made to portray me as “a traitor”, “murderer” and “sellout”, yet no iota of evidence has been produced to give credence to the allegations.’
Mrs Mujuru is the first vice president to be fired since Zimbabwe gained independence in 1980.Her four predecessors all died in office.
