Zimbabwe crisis: Army says it is 'targeting criminals', not Mugabe

Zimbabwe's military has read out a statement after taking over the national broadcaster, ZBC, saying it has taken action to "target criminals".

 

However, it said this was not "a military takeover of government" and President Robert Mugabe was safe.

 

Heavy gunfire and artillery were heard in northern suburbs of the capital, Harare, early on Wednesday.

 

Zimbabwe's envoy to South Africa, Isaac Moyo, earlier dismissed talk of a coup, saying the government was "intact".

 

The statement read out by Maj Gen Sibusiso Moyo came hours after soldiers overran the headquarters of ZBC. He said: "We wish to assure the nation that his excellency the president... and his family are safe and sound and their security is guaranteed."

 

The statement added: "We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes... that are causing social and economic suffering in the country. As soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy."

Just now, Mr. Sinister said:

If he's this ballsy there must be enough people that are sympathetic to his position to where they can't outright kill him without a massive ****storm

 

One of my ex's is from Zimbabwe and she used to tell me that people are terrified of this dude. Hopefully the resistance stays strong and they can yank him out of power.

The resistance in this scenario seems to be other corrupt officials.
