Zimbabwe's Mugabe widens purge, clearing wife's succession pathBy MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's sacking of his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa was part of a wider purge, state media said on Tuesday, in a clear out analysts say is meant to neutralise any resistance to the political rise of his wife, Grace. Mugabe sacked his long-time ally Mnangagwa on Monday for showing "traits of disloyalty", abruptly removing a favourite to succeed the 93-year-old leader and boosting the likelihood of Grace Mugabe becoming his next deputy and potential successor. State televsion ZBC said the purge went beyond removing Mnangagwa, 75, as half of the ruling ZANU-PF's national provincial executives separately met and passed resolutions expelling supporters of the former vice president on Monday.
