Harare: Zimbabwe's state media say an inquest has ruled there was no foul play in the fiery death of a top power broker in President Robert Mugabe's party.
Former Army commander General Solomon Mujuru, husband of the nation's vice president, was burned beyond recognition in a fire at his farmhouse south of Harare last year.
The Herald newspaper, controlled by Mugabe loyalists, reported on Thursday that Attorney General Johannes Tomana had given the daily the findings of a monthlong inquest that ended in February.
The paper quotes Tomana as saying the findings are "well-reasoned and sound" and declaring the case closed.
Mujuru's family had insisted on the inquest amid speculation the general had been murdered.
