The ruling party ZANU PF has however come out and refuted claims of a coup,stating that,i quote:

“There was no coup, only a bloodless transition which saw corrupt and crooked persons being arrested and an elderly man who had been taken advantage of by his wife being detained.”

“The few bangs that were heard were from crooks who were resisting arrest, but they are now detained.”

Mugabe’s detention comes as Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa, the vice-president fired by President Mugabe recently, returned to the country.
