Zimbabwe: Army moves in to oust Mugabe

…Mugabe accuse army of treason

Armoured vehicles have been spotted in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare a day after the army commander, General Constantino Chiwenga, threatened to step in to resolve the political tensions in the ruling ZANU-PF.

President Robert Mugabe sparked the rift with the military by sacking his Vice President Emerson Mnangagwa, a long time comrade of his.

The sacking has been interpreted as Mugabe’s way paving the way for his wife, Grace, to succeed him.

Mnangagwa, who enjoyed the backing of the military and is known as the “crocodile” because of his perceived shrewdness, fled the country. He alleged he and his family have been threatened.

Over 100 senior officials allegedly supporting him have been listed for disciplinary measures by a faction associated with the Mugabe dynasty.

On Monday, General Chiwenga warned that the military would not hesitate to step in to end purges against former liberation war fighters.

“We must remind those behind the current treacherous shenanigans that, when it comes to matters of protecting our revolution, the military will not hesitate to step in,” said the General.

He added: “The current purging  targeting members of the party with a liberation background must stop forthwith.”

ZANU-PF responded by accusing the commander of “treasonable conduct intended to disturb national peace and incite insurrection”.

  8. i would support the move in a manner that some African leaders cling to power no matter they know that they are failures,dictators,old;such leaders deserve an iron fist,rough removal from power.

  9. ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION!!! Ladies and gentlemen Boys and Girls Brothers and sisters. Uncles and aunties Nephews and nieces Doctors and nurses Neighbours and Colleagues Students and graduates. I really don’t have anything to say. Thanks for your attention

  10. I think kelvin your right we cant make a progress if we dont have alook to what is happening to other countries around us.I hope we as malawians we will going to get a point from zimbabwe so that that will never happen to malawi oky.lastly am agreeing with kelvin on the point that some one may be is behind all scenes in southern africa to destroy our peace and harmony but I thing for us here in malawi is avoidable.

  11. A Malawi,kodi mukuziwa chachitika kuti atsilikali akuzimbabwe achite izi??,Mugabe anachosa vice wake ndipo waika mkazi wake kukhala vice president.Kukanakhala ku Malawi mukanatani??.Ameneyitu amangidwa,chifukwa watenga zimbabwe ngati ziko lamakolo ake.

  12. What goes around comes around. And Zimbabwe is not / will never be a family property. What the Zimbabwe army commander has done is the only way to go when the leaders have started doing what it pleases them forgetting the people they represent.

  13. I don’t care what people say about Mugabe. This is treason,plain and simple. This only stands to create chaos in Zimbabwe and the whole southern africa region. This may result in a war and the whole peaceful Southern Africa region will be left with the threat of Islamic extremism, an influx of military hardware. The whole region will no longer be safe. and all this for what??

  14. the only president who doesn’t care about the whites, we don’t need trouble in Zimbabwe. Mr commander go back to your base please.

  15. A herbalist in Africa has been curing hundreds of HIV patients using natural herbs. He has on countless occasions after curing patients presented lab results both positive and negative, together with the cured person. with joy in my heart i will like to inform the general public. i never knew there was a cure to HIV until my sister was cured from the virus after four years of battling the virus with ARV. She took his herbal medicine for a month and some weeks and when she went for a test and she was diagnosed to be negative. you can contact the doctor on WhatsApp or call +2348147299781

    1. My friend, there is no cure for hiv. Taking ARV for 4 years results in low viral load below threshold where rapid test for hiv can not detect. Tell your sister to go for DNA test, you will change your statement.
