    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.
