Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has denounced recent turmoil as part of a plot to overthrow his rule and rejected charges of human rights violations in an exclusive interview with RFI's partner station, FRANCE 24.

During the interview, Mnangagwa also defended Zimbabwe’s bid to re-join the Commonwealth, slammed the UK’s calls for new sanctions on the country and said former President Robert Mugabe and his wife should be respected, even though “no one is above the law”.
