JOHANNESBURG | Speculation about the failing health of Zimbabwe's president has dominated local newspapers for weeks, raising questions about who would succeed the 88-year-old dictator.
Vice President Joice Mujuru is questioning why her husband, a powerful ex-general, was unable to escape the house fire that killed him.
A raging house fire killed one of Zimbabwe's main political brokers, raising questions Tuesday about the battle within longtime President Robert Mugabe's party over who will succeed the ailing 87-year-old leader.
She said she does not understand why her husband was unable to escape from the house's large, low windows.
Mrs. Mujuru told the state-run Herald newspaper on Wednesday that she wants "satisfactory answers" from the investigation into last week's death of Gen. Solomon Mujuru.
