South African media has reported that the wife of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has suffered minor injuries in an accident involving the presidential motorcade after the 93-year-old leader's return from a trip for medical treatment.

More details emerged on Sunday of the mishap at Harare International Airport that saw First Lady Grace Mugabe sprain her ankle.

The driver of Mugabe's Zim 1 Mercedes limousine set off before the First Lady had properly got into the vehicle.

Her shoe was run over by the rear wheel of the vehicle.

Grace had accompanied her husband to Singapore, where the Head of State and Government receives specialised eye treatment, and on arrival back home they were met by Vice-President's Emmerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko, Cabinet ministers and senior civil servants, and service chiefs.

State broadcaster ZBC reported that Grace Mugabe was taken to a hospital on Saturday to be treated for bruises on her right ankle following a "freak vehicle incident", and was later discharged.

"The examining doctors confirmed that she suffered no major injury", Charamba said.

Meanwhile, a motorcycle outrider with the Presidential motorcade suffered a fractured arm after crashing into an Isuzu pick-up truck along Airport Road while escorting the First Family from Harare International Airport yesterday morning. "At the time of her discharge, which was about an hour later, she complained of pain from the hurt ankle".
