Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has denied allegations that he cast a spell on his Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and poisoning him.

The 74-year-old Mnangagwa is seen by analysts as the favorite to succeed the 93-year-old veteran leader.

Mnangagwa was flown to South Africa for treatment two weeks ago after falling ill at a rally where Mugabe was speaking.

According to reports, some top officials of the ruling ZANU-PF party believe Mnangagwa ate a poisoned ice cream provided by the first family.

Further reports indicate that doctors found palladium poison in the Vice President's body.
