On Tuesday, Zimbabwe's ruling party accused the leader of the armed forces of treason, as armored vehicles were spotted nearing the capital in apparent military pressure on President Robert Mugabe over a succession dispute. According to analysts, it remains premature to talk of a coup attempt, however there does appear to be a conflict between Mugabe and the military. Last week, Mugabe fired Vice President Emerson Mnangagwa, a veteran of the country’s 1970s liberation war who was popular with the military and had been seen as a likely successor to Mugabe. The ninety-three year-old Mugabe has been in power since the country gained its independence from Britain in 1980.
