HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's vice president Joice Mujuru hit back at charges of plotting to challenge President Robert Mugabe and said calls for her to resign were unconstitutional, her first public response to weeks of attacks by state-owned media.

Mujuru, vice president in government and of Mugabe's ZANU-PF party since 2004, was until last month seen as a leading contender to succeed the 90-year-old leader, but Mugabe's wife Grace and state media have accused her of treason, graft and plotting to oust the president.
