Former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo and an ardent Mugabe loyalist, said Zimbabwe's new President Emmerson Mnangagwa stole power and was leading an "illegal regime".
Moyo said the army acted unconstitutionally when it briefly took power from the government in November.
He pointed to Mnangagwa's visit last week to ailing opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai as evidence of the new president's efforts to assert himself politically.
