USAfrica BrkNEWS Zimbabwe military intervention not yet a coup against embattled Mugabe


After initial speculation about the “intervention” by Zimbabwe’s armed forces earlier today November 15, 2017, the hourly monitoring of the unfolding events by – at this time – indicate that it is Not a military coup against Robert Mugabe.

Remarkably, the spokesperson for the armed forces Major Gen Sibusiso Moyo was on Zimbabwe tv and radio to “assure the nation that his Excellency the president… and his family are safe and sound and their security is guaranteed…. We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes… that are causing social and economic suffering in the country.”

Moyo promised the financially and politically weary Zimbabweans that “As soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy.”

Meanwhile, South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma‚ in his capacity as chairperson of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) has instructed his Minister of Defence and Military Veterans‚ Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula‚ and the Minister of State Security‚ Advocate Bongani Bongo to go to Zimbabwe to meet with President Robert Mugabe and the Zimbabwean Defence Force.


  1. ….Zimbabwe’s current situation is an interesting contradiction of itself. If you need the intervention of the military to sanitize the nation of the so called corrupt government officials, then your president (Mugabe) is no longer able to carry out his duties as president and should use this great opportunity to hang it up….the fact that the military needed to intervene demonstrates the reality that Mugabe is no longer efficient and effective…

    • ….I see why Zimbabwean military is refusing to call the removal of Mugabe a coup….it’s more of an intervention aimed at humanely handling a stubborn elderly man whose senile condition has made it difficult for him to continue running affairs of the country…
