Zimbabwe’s official Sunday Mail reported the attempt, and is controlled by a faction of the ZANU-PF led by Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa

Mnangagwa is also thought to be a strong force behind the rapid political rise of Mugabe’s wife, Grace Mugabe, who was recently nominated to lead the ruling party’s women’s league – giving her a seat on the party’s politburo, its top decision-making body. Since assuming that position in July 2014, it is thought that she, along with Mnangagwa, have launched a campaign to discredit Mujuru.
