Cape Town - Zimbabwe Vice President Joice Mujuru has tendered her resignation to President Robert Mugabe on Monday, ZimEye reports.

They received an unconfirmed report from what they claim to be reliable sources.

One of the sources said that Mugabe turned down the resignation, according to ZimEye.

ZimEye reported in October that Mugabe had evidence against Mujuru in the form of voice tapes, where Mujuru can be heard saying that Mugabe has overstayed his welcome.

News24 reported earlier that Mujuru had come under fire recently for allegedly plotting to ouster Mugabe.

She also came under fire from Zimbabwe's First Lady Grace Mugabe, who told her to resign and accused her of being a leader of a faction within Zanu-PF.
