Is Military Coup Imminent in Zimbabwe?

Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Zimbabwe’s Home affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe has rebuffed rumours of a coup d’etat being hatched.

He made the address on behalf of the Working National Security Council at Munhumutapa building, Harare. The council reiterated the commitment of the country’s armed forces which they described as “loyal, professional and dedicated to their constitutional mandate”.

The council blamed the rumour on former members of the ruling ZANU-PF, some mischief makers in the military and members of the opposition. The plans of the detractors who the council credited with intent to destabilize the nation were described as baseless and unfounded.

Kazembe Kazembe dismissed the claim in its entirety and assured the international community of peace and stability in Zimbabwe. According to the NSC, “They are completely unfounded. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no coup in the making, nor is there any form of transitional authority or inclusive government that is contemplated by the new dispensation, except in the fertile imagination of the purveyors in this false narrative.”
