    Tsvangirai was expected back in Harare on Saturday to prepare to take part in the run-off vote scheduled for June 27.
     
    Sibotshiwe said: "In light of this information [of a plot] ... it has been decided that the president will not return today.
     
    "This will enable his security detail more time to analyse and mitigate the threat."
     
    Zimbabwe's election process has seen repeated delays, violence and allegations of electoral fraud.
     
    Tsvangirai accuses Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's president, of delaying the run-off to mount a campaign of intimidation against his supporters.
