Breaking News image

Zimbabwe’s ruling party has accused the country’s army chief of “treasonable conduct” after he warned of a possible military intervention in politics.

General Constantino Chiwenga had challenged President Robert Mugabe over his sacking of the vice-president.

He said the army was prepared to act to end purges within Mr Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party.

The party said his comments were “clearly calculated to disturb national peaceā€¦ [and] incite insurrection”.

In a statement, the party said it would never succumb to military threats.
