Zimbabwe army on manoeuvres?

So, sh!thole African republic goes t!ts up and has a coup. This is news?

Will the 1st Arrse Rifles be reformed under Colonel Grumpy and step in to save the say arriving in a battered A400M stolen from Brize Norton and with lots of THOSE rifles and an unlimited supply of ammo?

Grumpy will be Colonel Allen Faulkner
Kinross will be Lieutenant Shawn Fynn
BravoBravo will be Captain Rafer Janders
Damanbugs will be Father Geoghegen
Old Yin will be Sergeant Jock McTaggart

Open to offers for the following parts:
Medic Arthur Witty
RSM Sandy Young
You, @Dark_Nit can be Witty, @Auld-Yin the RSM.
On serious note, you mentioned That rifle and unlimited supply of ammunition. If THAT rifle is so effective, then it does not require unlimited ammunition.
 
I'm more likely to kill than cure.

To get back on thread, Zim has been in a state of semi-revolution for the past 10 years,

The sooner Mugsy is gone, the earlier the next dictator can take control. Ever was it thus.

The A400M (Atlas to you) will suffer a gearbox failure and become AOG in Algiers, and the ARRSE battalion will be thrown in jail!.

Thatcher's son (Scratcher) will come to the rescue.
 
Oh dear... he we go...

Soldiers 'take over Zimbabwe broadcaster'

Soldiers are reported to have taken over the headquarters of Zimbabwe's national broadcaster, ZBC, amid a growing political crisis.

Explosions have also been reported in the capital, Harare, but the cause is unclear.

Earlier, the country's ambassador in South Africa denied talk of a coup.

Zimbabwe's ruling party accused the country's army chief of "treasonable conduct" after he warned of a possible military intervention in politics.

General Constantino Chiwenga had challenged President Robert Mugabe after he sacked the vice-president.

Gen Chiwenga said the army was prepared to act to end purges within Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party.

Tensions were raised further on Tuesday when armoured vehicles were seen taking up positions on roads outside Harare, although their purpose was unclear.

Some staff at ZBC were manhandled when soldiers took over their offices in Harare, sources told Reuters.

Workers were told that they "should not worry", a source added, and that soldiers were only there to protect the site.

Stupid question of the day, but could bob be in control of the troops out and about?

Not a stupid question at all.
Bob 'hears voices' occasionally, and is damn-sure paranoid.
It could be a round-up of dissidents (ie anybody suspected of anything)
But given the sabre-rattling from ZDF the past few days, it may well be the opening shots in a coup.

So the ZDF aren’t exactly fans of old lady Mugabe I take it.
 
Hate to sound bloodthirsty or piratical, but hopefully they learned something from the failed Turkish coup and slot Bob and the wife early on. (Can file that under “did a favor for society”)

I don't think the general population of Zim are, either!
Her behaviour of late borders on despotism, and the excesses she goes to rival Imelda Marcos.

The latests shenanigans involving her and the kids - detailed above - are reminiscent of the 'let them eat cake'!
The nation is on the verge of starvation due to imports being banned, and she's buying Rolls Royces, and the kids are pouring $600 bottles over their watches, because they can...
 
Meanwhile, according to Zimbabwe Broadcasting...

A Nketa family is having sleepless nights amid accusations that one of the family members allegedly hired some goblins which are now tormenting the family especially at night. House number 5951 in Nketa 9 Bulawayo might look like a normal home in the suburb but inside it are untold stories of mysterious happenings caused by suspected goblins. Mrs Rebecca Nkomo said she has not known peace inside her home since her son left for what she says was a pastor’s course for two and a half years in Harare. She suspects that her son might have been initiated into satanism as she claims that strange things have been happening since her son came back from Harare. Mrs Nkomo has since sought for a peace order against her estranged son but alleges that he left some goblins which are tormenting the whole family
