ZIMBABWEAN PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that former long-time leader Robert Mugabe will be "left in peace" with a "lucrative" retirement package.

Speaking to the BBC's Mishal Husain, Mnangagwa also said that no-one had been granted immunity from prosecution.

According to the BBC, many Zimbabweans are hoping Mugabe and his family, who were known for their extravagant lifestyles, would be held to account for their actions.

Mugabe was ousted in November following 37 years in power.
