Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Retitred Lieutenant General Sibusiso Moyo has said that the military intervention that led to the resignation of Robert Mugabe and the subsequent elevation of Emmerson Mnangagwa to the presidency was not a coup but a spontaneous reaction by the people of Zimbabwe.
Moyo said this at a reorientation workshop for Zimbabwe’s heads of diplomatic missions yesterday. Said Moyo:
It (change of Government) was a spontaneous reaction of the people of Zimbabwe. I know this is a question you are normally going to be facing. It was not a military takeover; it was a reaction of all institutions of the State. Strong institutions led by the military, the people themselves who demanded change, the Parliament, the political party which was Zanu- PF including the judiciary who then ruled it was compliant to the constitution. So it is not and it was never a military takeover, it was a spontaneous reaction by the people of Zimbabwe.
