Robert Mugabe, the currently embattled President of Zimbabwe has spoken from where he was confined.
As the news of military take-off filled media early this morning, the South African President, Jacob Zuma pulled a call through to the over 90-year-old African leader.
Speaking with Zuma, Mugabe said he “was confined to his home but said that he was fine”.
According to BBC, the move may be a bid to replace Mr Mugabe with his sacked deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The dismissal of Mr Mnangagwa last week had left Mr Mugabe’s wife Grace as the president’s likely successor.
Information however has it that Grace is no where to be found within the country, as at the time of filling this report.
