There is still no word on who will take over the leadership of Zimbabwe after this week's military action, which saw President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace detained in their residence in Harare.
Mugabe has met with the commander of the Zimbabwe National Army‚ General Constantine Chiwenga, but reports say he is still refusing to step down.
Hitekani Magwedze, EWN reporter, spoke to the Midday Report from Zimbabwe about the latest developments in Harare.
Magwedze reports that Mugabe will make his first public appearance since the military seized power in his country, at a graduation ceremony at a university in the capital.
He explains that the university is under heavy police presence and filled with students about to graduate.
Apart from the standard police roadblocks, there are noticeable soldiers and military personnel in their camouflage and it is worth noting that they are heavily armed.— Hitekani Magwedze, EWN reporter
We were stopped three time last night by the soldiers who asked if we were carrying guns or any weapons,— Hitekani Magwedze, EWN reporter
Marco Machona, Founder and Presidential Candidate for African Democrats, says there is nothing concrete on the transitional government as to who is likely to succeed Mugabe.
Only once Mugabe has stepped down will we know what is happening, says Machona.
In the last 48 hours we were celebrating thinking they have managed to remove the dictator. But as things are turning out, they have given him leeway and the breather that he wanted.— Marco Machona, Founder and Presidential Candidate for African Democrats
It is a bad start to give Mugabe a minute of negotiations but we remember in 2008 we saw Thabo Mbeki in and out of Harare and eventually Mugabe's powers were returned.— Marco Machona, Founder and Presidential Candidate for African Democrats
Machona says as much as the people want Mugabe to go they are still suspicious of the military.
