Kenyans dig in as Mugabe is put under house arrest

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has been detained by the country’s military, his ruling party Zanu-PF says.

Several members of his Cabinet, who have since been branded “crooks” and “criminals”, have been arrested in what the military terms a “a bloodless transition”.

“There was no coup, only a bloodless transition which saw corrupt and crooked persons being arrested and an elderly man who had been taken advantage of by his wife being detained,” Zanu PF said in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

Talk of a possible coup in Zimbabwe trended on Twitter in Kenya on Wednesday.
