Robert Mugabe was spotted at a graduation ceremony on Friday despite being under house arrest in the wake of the military coup in Zimbabwe.

Mr Mugabe has been ordered to resign or face impeachment, however, the 93-year-old has refused to back down amid the threats.

Doctor Brilliant Mhlanga, an academic at the University of Hertfordshire, warned of a possible civil conflict as Mr Mugabe clings on to power.

He told talkRADIO: “The situation is still very tense and very dangerous. In fact, I should highlight that this is a coup, by the way.

“The only problem is, the coup plotters have failed to manage their coup. The more they stay with this kind of impasse, the more they find themselves trying to explain that it’s not a coup – it is a coup.”

Doctor Mhlanga added: “A lot of people are being abducted, these are not arrests that are taking place because the army has no arresting power, so they are literally abducting and harassing people.

“But, they present a facade of a peaceful government, it’s just politics that they are playing.”

The academic refused to rule out the possibility of a civil conflict arising from the military coup because of Zimbabwe’s political history.
