SWELLING rumours surround President Robert Mugabe’s failure to return from his annual leave.

Mugabe takes his annual leave from December to the end of January, but as of Friday, Vice President Joice Mujuru was still acting President.

Government sources told New Friday that Mugabe’s failure to return to work was “sending diplomatic tongues wagging”.

Constitutional law expert Dr Lovemore Madhuku told SW Radio Africa last night that it appeared Mugabe was slowly scaling down, handing over work to Mujuru.
