Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwe president is currently under house arrest in the capital Harare and the military have taken control over the government. The army refused this move as a coup.

 

 

After taking control of the national television station the military figures said that they were targeting the ‘criminals’ around the government. The entire power struggle is based to replace Mugabe with the sacked deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa.

 

 

An FCO statement stated that because of the uncertain political situation in Harare with unusual military activity it was recommended for the British nationals currently swelling in Harare to remain safely at home until the situation comes under control.

 

 

They were further suggested to avoid political activity or activities that can be considered as political like conducting political discussion in public places and criticizing the president.

 

 

Any kind of demonstrations or rallies should be avoided. The authorities had sometimes used force to suppress demonstrations.

 

 

After Zimbabwe gained independence from the UK in 1980, the 93-year-old Mugabe had dominated the political scene.

 

 

The embassy also warned Brits in Zimbabwe not make any derogatory or insulting comments about the president or carry any material considered to be offensive to his office.
