Former Vice-President Joice Mujuru has lashed out at her successor, Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, describing him as a male chauvinist and unelectable because of his alleged role in the Gukurahundi massacres.

Mujuru - who now heads the opposition Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) following her expulsion from the ruling party last year on allegations of plotting to dethrone President Robert Mugabe - made the remarks in an interview with The Africa Report during her European tour early this month to drum up Diaspora support for her party.

The former Vice-President insinuated the two had clashed over who was more senior in the party prior to independence and this could have poisoned their relations after 1980.
