Zimbabwe Coup: Mugabe Detained

Posted on November 15, 2017

The move came after Mr Mugabe sacked his deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in favour of his wife, Grace. Heavy gun and artillery fire could be heard in northern parts of the capital Harare early on Wednesday. A statement read out by a general on air denied it was a coup and said Mr Mugabe was safe but did not say where.
