Emmerson Mnangagwa – widely expected to be appointed as president in the coming days – will return to the country shortly, officials said.
A spokesman for the ruling Zanu-PF party told AFP: “I believe that the fired vice-president Mnangagwa, who the party central committee endorsed… will come back in the next 24 hours or so and he will be the one who will be sworn in to be president for 90 days.”
Earlier, Reuters had quoted another party official as saying that Mr Mnangagwa would serve the remainder of Mr Mugabe’s term until elections are held next year.
