Coup Rumors In Zimbabwe, Tanks Head To Harare Over Mugabe's Row With Army by Letenwam: 5:44pm On Nov 14
There's been rumour of Coup d'etat about to happen in Zimbabwe, as four tanks were spotted heading towards Zimbabwe’s capital Harare on Tuesday afternoon following a heated row between President Robert Mugabe and the head of the armed forces.

Robert Mugabe was reportedly given 24 hours to vacate office after sacking the country's Vice President, who is a former military operative according to sources in Zimbabwe.

Witnesses who spoke to Reuters said tanks were heading for Harare, while two other tanks were seen parked on the road from Harare to Chinhoyi, some 14 miles outside the capital. Soldiers at the scene allegedly refused to speak to Reuters.

“The current purging which is clearly targeting members of the party with a liberation background must stop forthwith,” said General Constantino Chiwenga at a news conference Monday at the army headquarters in Harare.

“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.”

HARARE (Reuters) - Armoured vehicles were seen heading towards Harare but the streets of the Zimbabwe capital remained calm, a day after the armed forces chief said he was prepared to “step in” to end a purge of supporters of a vice president sacked last week.

A Reuters witness saw two tanks parked beside the main road from Harare to Chinhoyi, about 20 km (14 miles) from the city. One, which was pointed in the direction of the capital, had come off its tracks.

Business continued normally inside the capital and there was no sign of a major military presence on the streets. Hours after the tanks were spotted, state media carried no extraordinary reports. Government officials could not be reached for comment.

Witnesses said they saw four armoured vehicles turn before reaching Harare, heading towards the Presidential Guard compound in a suburb called Dzivarasekwa on the outskirts of Harare.

I really don't know how things are in that country but why would a man so desperately cling to power even at such an old age adding very little to the general improvement of the country. It just reeks of extreme greed.

Trying to start another foolishness that will send the country two decades backward. Mugabe has no honour either. What else does he want at 93?


Guns and bombs will not give them peace either. I gave up on the country when Morgan agreed to the power sharing agreement.
