Mugabe Fires Vice-President, Eight Others

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has fired his Vice-president Joice Mujuru along with eight ministers aligned with her, days after she lost her post in the ruling party, officials said.
Mugabe sacked Mujuru, 59, on Tuesday after weeks of accusations that she had led a “treacherous cabal” to try to unseat him. The sacked officials received their dismissal letters on Monday night, reported the Reuters news agency, citing two government sources it said declined to be named as they were not authorised to speak to the media.
