HARARE (Reuters) - Four tanks were seen heading toward the Zimbabwe capital Harare on Tuesday, witnesses said, a day after the head of the armed forces said he was prepared to “step in” to end a purge of supporters of ousted vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa.

A Reuters witness saw two other tanks parked beside the main road from Harare to Chinhoyi, about 20 km (14 miles) from the city. One of the tanks, which was pointed in the direction of the capital, had come off its tracks. Soldiers on the scene refused to talk to Reuters.

Four tanks?  Hardly a show of force and a coup  :spitcoffee:

Een van die videos het die betuurder al tien tenks getel wat Harare toe gaan terwyl hy uitry.
Een praat van al die hoof strate is geblok.
Ander praat van trok vol 'soldiers' in die stad.
