    Mugabe’s house sealed off by army

    President Robert Mugabe’s famous ‘blue house’ or ‘blue roof’ has been sealed off by heavily armed military personnel, Khuluma Afrika has confirmed.

    Whilst reports on social media seem to imply that a coup is underway, Khuluma Afrika understands that military presence has been increased there to improve security in the face of growing uncertainty in the country.

    President Mugabe however is not at the house as we speak, and Khuluma Afrika was able to confirm that his motorcade is still at his Munhumutapa offices in the capital.

    Additional army units as well as secret service personnel have been dispatched to the offices as well.

    Khuluma Afrika has been told that the cordoning of ZBC premises is inline with these security measures.

    Historically President Mugabe is generally afraid, and interprets any show of defiance as risk of a possible coup and has in the past tightened his personal security over simple things like social media dissent, or strikes by workers.

    Fears of some sort of revolt grew over the last few hours after several army tanks were spotted headed for the capital, and major arteries out of Harare were closed.
