Malawi has refused to comment on events in Zimbabwe saying government is still monitoring the situation.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Emmanuel Fabiano has told the local media that government is closely watching the situation in Zimbabwe where the military has detained 93-year-old president Robert Mugabe.

Fabiano says govt is closely watching the situation.

Fabiano said Malawi is still gathering information on the issue and will comment at an appropriate time.

The army has taken control in Zimbabwe and has installed sacked vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa as the country’s interim leader in what the army has described as a “bloodless transition of power”.

Mnangagwa was sacked recently to pave the way for First Lady Grace Mugabe to take over from her husband, a move that did not please the military.

The army warned on Monday, following Mnagangwa’s sacking, that it would not hesitate to step in to end purges against former liberation war fighters.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports indicate that Grace Mugabe might have fled to Namibia where she is seeking protection while other reports claim she is still under house arrest together with her husband.

  14. rguably the oldest president in the world, Robert Mugabe’s 37-year controversial leadership in Zimbabwe, spanning more than three decades has finally come to a dramatic end. The veteran leader and his wife Grace Mugabe were ‘taken into custody’ during an overnight military intervention speculated as a coup. The army seized control of the capital’s streets, major government offices and TV stations. According to several reports. Mugabe has been removed from power in a “bloodless transition” and axed vice president comrade E Mnagngawa will be brought back to become the President of ZANU PF in the interim “as per the constitution of our revolutionary organisation,” said the ruling party.

While it’s still unclear how a military coup could be reversed to a democratic government so easily, Zanu-PF, in a statement issued this morning, said: “Zimbabwe has not had a coup. There has been a decision to intervene because our constitution had been undermined.” The statement explained that the military intervened to purge the nation of “corrupt persons.” “There was no coup, only a bloodless transition which saw corrupt and crooked persons being arrested and an elderly man who had been taken advantage of by his wife being detained.”
