Zimbabwean Peaceful Transition, Buhari Reacts

By John Beloved


Zimbabwe stands in a tense and uncertain situation following the military Control of the country.

93 year old Robert Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe since the country gained independence from the white minority in 1980 triggered the unpleasant situation by firing his vice president Emerson Mnangagwa and presuming 52 year old Mugabe grace, his wife as his successor.

The presumption of Grace Mugabe as his successor was opposed by senior military officers as Constantino Chiwenga, the Head of Armed Forces had earlier threatened to intervene in politics if Mugabe did not stop removing veteran from government. Obviously he had kept to his words as the actions were taken today.

Cars and troops were seen blocking the road on outside the Parliament on the street of harare, the capital of Zimbabwe on Wednesday 5th November 2017. Robert Mugabe has been removed from power and his Ex vice president Mnangagwa has been installed as an interim president through a bloodless transition of power as it was called.

“We are only targeting criminals around him (Mugabe) who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice,” Major General SB Moyo, Chief of Staff Logistics, said on television.
“As soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy
United Nations secretary-general Antonio Gutierrez, the African Union and Western countries and called for calm.

Residents of the country quietly continues with their daily activities quietly as some of them seems to be intrigued by the situation. "I don’t support the army but I am happy to see Mugabe gone, maybe this country can start to develop again,” said Rumbi Katepfu, preparing to shut her mobile phone shop early in downtown Harare. “I did not think this would ever happen... We used to think Mugabe and Grace were invincible"

President Buhari responding to this issues seeks for peace in Zimbabwe,
He called for calm, peace and respect for the constitution in a statement released by his media aide Femi Adesina.


According to him “every attempt must be made to resolve all contentious issues by constitutional means in Zimbabwe to save the country from avoidable political instability.”

The safety of Mugabe and his wife Grace was guaranteed by South African President who had spoken to him stating that they were confined in their house.

However there is a probability that this might be the end of Mugabe's rule in Zimbabwe as he is allegedly now preparing to step down few hours after the Zimbabwean military take over.
