Mnangagwa, believed to be in South Africa, said he would not be returning to Zimbabwe because he feared for his life as he no longer trusted President Mugabe.
He added that he told the 93-year-old leader that the current political and constitutional crisis was no longer “a matter between him and myself, but between the people of Zimbabwe and President Mugabe”.
