Mugabe is ‘safe and sound’ Zimbabwe’s army says

Zimbabwe army denies coup against Mugabe as it takes control of Harare.

Chris Mutsvangwa, chairman of the Zimbabwe war veterans’ group, has praised the night’s events as a “bloodless correction of gross abuse of power” by members of Robert Mugabe’s government.

Mutsvangwa told the Associated Press he believed the army would return Zimbabwe to “genuine democracy” and make the country a “modern model nation.”

The war veterans are supporters of Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice-president who was fired Mugabe last week following a power struggle over succession with the president’s wife, Grace Mugabe
