Zimbabwe Govt Dismisses Rumours of Imminent Military Coup

The Zimbabwean government has dismissed as false, allegations of an impending coup to dethrone President Emmerson Mnangagwa, accusing allies of the late former president Robert Mugabe and some opposition officials of peddling false rumours. Zimbabwe's worst economic crisis in more than a decade and rising public anger have stoked concern the military, which ended Mugabe's more than three-decades rule in November 2017, might step in again.
