President Robert Mugabe has warned his security forces not to get involved in politics after continued uncertainty over the ageing Zimbabwean leader's successor.
The president said Army, police and intelligence officers were taking sides in his Zanu-PF party's infighting over who will take the helm.
"We had come to a point where there were some in the military, the police and the intelligence services joining factions. Let's stop that," President Mugabe told thousands of party delegates.
"Let's stop that completely, we are ruining the party that way."
