President Robert Mugabe repeatedly vowed to personally beat up former close colleague Didymus Mutasa for backing Joyce Mujuru, it has been learnt.

Mugabe (92) made the threat way back in 2014 during a two hour long meeting with Mutasa.

According to reports Mutasa made the sensational claims at the weekend saying the incident happened when Zanu PF youth claimed Mujuru was plotting to kill Mugabe.

Mutasa said "After that meeting, Mugabe then called me and we had a two-hour meeting before the politburo.

"In the meeting, he asked me why I supported Mujuru. I told him that I supported her because she was his deputy".

"He told me that she was a witch, using Nigerian sangomas and water beetles to try to kill him and take over the Presidency and, therefore, I should dump her".

Mutasa said at that point he told Mugabe that Zimbabwe People First interim president had not done anything wrong.

" He was angry and threatened me, 'Do you know that I can beat you up?' said Mutasa.

"I then asked him if there was need for fighting over the matter, but he repeated the words again".

Mutasa was kicked out of Zanu PF and is now part of ZimPF with Mujuru.
