Former Minister Talks of Military Coup in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe's former home affairs minister, now the leader of the opposition Zapu party, Dumiso Dabengwa, has reportedly said that a military coup "cannot be ruled out" in the country following the sacking of former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa. He says that it was likely that most Zimbabweans could back this move "as they are tired of President Robert Mugabe's rule".
