  Zimbabwe: Tanks Head for Harare as Robert Mugabe Row With Army Chief Fuels Coup Rumors Mugabe recently fired his former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, sparking accusations he was preparing to hand over power to his wife.Witnesses told Reuters that the tanks were heading for Harare, while another two tanks were seen parked on the road from Harare to Chinhoyi, some 14 miles outside the capital. Soldiers at the scene refused to speak to Reuters.

(Bloomberg) -- Explosions were heard in the Zimbabwean capital, Harare, early Wednesday after soldiers and several armored vehicles were seen in the city amid a deepening split between the military and the government of 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe.

News24 reported armed forces commander Constantine Chiwenga saying that the military had not taken over and that Mugabe and his family were safe. He added that armed forces were targeting the “criminals around them,” and said the situation will return to normal soon, Johannesburg-based News24 said on Twitter.

“I was woken up at about 1.10 a.m. by a distant explosion that shook the bed -- two others since then,” Roger Stringer, who lives in Harare’s Mount Pleasant suburb, said by phone.

Reuters reported that soldiers have taken over the state-owned Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corp. The U.S. embassy said in a Twitter post that it would have a minimal staff Wednesday “due to ongoing uncertainty in Zimbabwe.”

Chiwenga made his comments on Monday, a week after Mugabe fired his ally, Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, as vice president and expelled him from the ruling party. He said the military wouldn’t permit “hijacking of the revolution.”

That declaration was “clearly calculated to disturb national peace and stability,” Information Minister Simon Khaya Moyo, who’s also the secretary for information for the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front, said Tuesday in a statement.

  Zimbabwe army has Mugabe, wife in custody, controls capital Zimbabwe's army said Wednesday it has President Robert Mugabe and his wife in custody and is securing government offices and patrolling the capital's streets following a night of unrest that included a military takeover of the state broadcaster. The night's action triggered speculation of a coup, but the military's supporters praised it as a "bloodless correction."Armed soldiers in armored personnel carriers stationed themselves at key points in Harare, while Zimbabweans formed long lines at banks in order to draw the limited cash available, a routine chore in the country's ongoing financial crisis.

Mnangagwa’s ouster marked a dramatic shift in politics in Zimbabwe, where he had been a pillar of a military and security apparatus that helped Mugabe emerge as the nation’s leader after independence from the U.K. in 1980. He was Zimbabwe’s first national security minister.

Mugabe has broken with most of his allies who fought in the liberation war against the white-minority regime of Rhodesia, leaving the so-called Generation-40 faction of younger members of the ruling party championed by his wife, Grace Mugabe, 52, in the ascendancy.

Mnangagwa’s firing came amid growing tensions before elections next year when it may face a seven-party opposition coalition that’s capitalizing on public anger over cash shortages, crumbling infrastructure and a collapse in government services. The economy has halved in size since 2000.
