Zimbabwe's first lady has urged her 93-year-old husband, Robert Mugabe to name a successor,following reports she wants to be the country's next leader.

Grace Mugabe, 52, told members of the ruling ZANU-PF party women's league that naming a successor 'will enable all members to rally behind one candidate'.

The world's oldest head of state, who has led Zimbabwe since 1980, has repeatedly refused to name a successor and says he will take part in next year's election.

His wife has previously said her husband could 'rule from the grave', adding: 'If God decides to take him then we would rather field him as a corpse'
