Zimbabwe army on manoeuvres?

#1
Don't want to jump the gun too much, but looks like the game might be afoot down in Harare town this afternoon. Tanks on their way in apparently and military road blocks according to Reuters et al.

The beginning of the end, the end of the beginning, or the start of something worse?

Army not liking the direction the Mugabes' current purge is going, so taking preventative measures. If it does get worse expect to see the Police and Army going at each other. And the people get fucked over again.

Army top rankers and police have all had their noses in the trough. Soldiers for diamonds in the Congo , forex manipulation , drug smuggling etc.

However Gen Constantino Chiwenga has voiced his opinion that Emmerson Mnangagwa, who has fled into exile was made to take the gap through Grace Mugabe's manipulation of old Bob and she has the backing of the Zanu-PF's Youth League and WAHH Vets ( how many can be alive now)?

Bobs on his way out maybe even though Grace did say he would still win the next election if he was to die?

Good job they renamed Harare's airport in time.

I think you're looking for the Sex Dolls You Would thread. Try the NAAFI Bar.

One only hopes the Zimbabwean army hasn't forgotten the Nicolae Ceaușescu precedent. I suspect it would be cheered by a large chunk of the population.

Pornbots? Is this what R2D2 ended up doing to secure a can of oil after his star wars fame had gone?

equally rumours that they've seized ZBC, are preparing to make a broadcast, and he's got 24 hours to resign and leave the country a la Gambia.

At the same time, this is Zim, and proper info's hard to come by. I'm waiting to see.

Agree - its going to be interesting to see if it is genuine, or if its isolated elements. Mugabe is a bit like Stalin - still scares the crap out of people, so his retribution will be terrifying if he walks away from this.

Wonder what type of tanks?

If its the bloody Mail reporting it will be the damn Dongfeng EQ2050's about the only working vehicles and even they are 7 years old.
