Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe alleges vice president plotted with US embassy against him

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has accused his vice president of plotting with the United States Embassy in the country to remove him.

Speaking at the ruling party Zanu-PF's annual conference on Saturday, Mugabe said Joice Mujuru has attended secret meetings at the embassy in Harare.

Mujuru was removed as the party's vice president during the three-day conference, but she remains the country's vice president.

The party conference re-elected the 90-year-old Mugabe to another five-year term as leader of the party.

Mugabe was also authorized to personally choose his vice president and other top party posts.
