Breaking; Army Takes Over In Zimbabwe, Mugabe Under House Arrest
The Zimbabwean military has seized government from the maximum ruler, Robert Mugabe, according to BBC report early this morning.
An army general spoke on the country’s national television that the soldiers have taken over but without coup d Etat and that the president is in a safe place.
An investigation revealed that Mugabe is under house arrest. The army general said that the military was out to arrest the thugs around the president after which it would bring the situation to normalcy.
Mugabe, 93 has been ruling the country since independence and there are indications that he would have appointed his wife, Grace as his vice after he sacked Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Trouble began to brew, following the sack of Mnangagwa, when an Army General Constantino Chiwenga Commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces went against Mugabe’s action.
The president accused him of a felony and was ready to deal with the soldier.
However, Mugabe could not carry out his action until the army struck this morning.
The British Government has directed its officials at its embassy to be calm and work lightly until the situation returns to normalcy.
