Mugabe's house sealed off by army

Grace Mugabe

eNCA's Zimbabwean correspondent Pindai Dube confirmed the tanks were visible in the streets of Harare, with sources indicating it was a "show of force" rather than a coup.

"The said statement by General Constantino Chiwenga which was not signed, and which did not represent the rest of the Command Element, suggests treasonous conduct on his part as this was meant to incite insurrection and violent challenge to the Constitutional Order", Moyo said.

On Monday, the commander of Zimbabwe Defence Forces said he was prepared to "step in" to end a purge of supporters of a vice president sacked last week.

Gen Constantino Chiwenga, Zimbabwe's army chief, has warned President Robert Mugabe and ruling Zanu-PF party after the sacking of vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, The Guardian reports.

ZANU PF Youth League leader, Kudzai Chipanga, in a statement said Chiwenga together with Mnangagwa must account for the missing money as they presided over revenue from the country's diamonds.

Allen County Public Health supports antibiotic awareness
Taking antibiotics when they are not needed or worse, taking the wrong antibiotic reduces their effectiveness. Councillor Sweet added: "In addition, people take antibiotics for mild infections when they don't need to".

Mnangagwa had always been tipped as Mugabe's most likely successor but has in recent months increasingly come into conflict with first lady Grace Mugabe, who is vying to replace the 93-year-old president.

"The current purging. targeting members of the party with a liberation background must stop forthwith".

But Mugave has been accusing the generals of taking sides in the succession race.

Grace Mugabe's rise has brought her into conflict with the independence-era war veterans, who once enjoyed a privileged role in the ruling party under Mugabe, but who have in recent years been banished from senior government and party roles.

Political analysts however say the military stayed quiet then because the beneficiary of Mujuru's downfall was the 75-year-old Mnangagwa, a war veteran. He has to declare his allegiance.
