Suspended  Zanu PF Senator Angeline Masuku has said she has no hard feelings on First Lady Grace Mugabe's deputy in the Zanu PF women's league Eunice Sandi Moyo.

Sandi Moyo accused Masuku of  harbouring  ambitions to be one of Zimbabwe's vice-presidents.

According to the Standard,  Masuku suggested that those who were attacking her, including Sand-Moyo  were novices in politics.

Masuku - a war veteran - was attacked by members of the G40 faction, including First Lady Grace Mugabe's deputy in the Zanu PF women's league Eunice Sandi Moyo after she attended a war veterans meeting.

She said she was the second most senior female politician in the country after Jane Ngwenya, a former deputy minister.

"I just saw what is alleged to have been said by Sandi Moyo. I usually don't comment on such issues because that is not my character," she said.

"But let me tell you this, not in Zapu or Zanu, but the entire country, I am an old person both in age and political experience so I can't be seen subjecting myself to talk about issues meant for children.

"If you look in the country, the only person who is older than me politically is Jane Ngwenya.

"She is the only source of wisdom and to whom I subject myself for counsel and not these other young children. I just look at them and hold no grudge."

Masuku said she viewed Moyo as a sister and had no personal grudge against her.

"I treat her like my sister so I am surprised of what is being written about her on me. Whenever I see her; I greet her with joy because from my upbringing and religious beliefs, I should not hate anyone," she said.

"I have no war with anyone. I treat her just the way I treat people like Mutsvangwa or Sibanda. Nothing personal and I hope she does the same."

"Even this afternoon, [Thursday] as I was entering the Senate chambers, I saw her and passed my greetings to her, so I don't hold any grudge against her.

"I went to that meeting fully aware of what I was doing and believed in its purpose."
