Zimbabwe: President Mugabe Under House Arrest, Refuses to Step Down

Robert Mugabe remains under house arrest and is reportedly refusing to resign as president, after Zimbabwe’s military seized the Parliament, courts, government offices and the main airport in the capital, Harare.  Moussa Faki Mahamat: “The military has reassured us this is not a coup d’état. As you know, the African Union is against any unconstitutional change of government. This is a very fundamental principle of the African Union, and we systematically condemn any regime change by arms, whether it be military or rebellion.”
