Zimbabwe’s Military in Apparent Takeover Says It Has Custody of Mugabe

Zimbabwe’s military said early Wednesday that it had taken custody of President Robert Mugabe, the world’s oldest head of state and one of Africa’s longest-serving leaders, in what increasingly appeared to be a military takeover in the southern African nation.



After apparently seizing the state broadcaster, ZBC, two uniformed officers said in a short predawn announcement that “the situation in our country has moved to another level.” While denying that the military had seized power, they said that Mr. Mugabe and his family “are safe and sound, and their security is guaranteed.”





“We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice,” said the main speaker, who was identified as Maj. Gen. S. B. Moyo, the army’s chief of staff.

General Moyo — who was not widely known to the public but who was considered close to the commander of the Zimbabwe Defense Forces, Gen. Constantine Chiwenga — warned that “any provocation will be met with an appropriate response.

  10. Such docile and funny people they waited 30 years to kick this old bat out of their country. God occultic He goat. If they did'not kick him out he would have taken the presidency with heaven. Anyway what am i talking about,look at us here in Nigeria. We have mortgaged our future to old presidents. Its been a cyclical affair with the same old gagoons ruling us since independence. Senseless clueless people like Buhari and what are we the youth doing just sitting down and watching the same clueless people ruling us over and over again. Africa is cursed especially a country like Nigeria where there are millions Human Resources and able people who can get us out of this mess we are in. But a chosen few, evil minded people will do every thing in their power to keep us underdeveloped and in bondage. All we do is sit back and watch. How are we better than the people of Zimbabwe. We are all the same silly clueless lot.

  14. Very likely, Mugabe is grateful for the army's internvention bcos there's ample evidence to show his mental and physical decline over the years. Yet, one isn't so certain about Grace's disposition regarding this latest move as it seems she was set on stepping into Zim's presidency a minute and half past her husband's "kpafuka". Whosai...how the world turns. QED@atm
