Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe, is reportedly refusing to step down, immediately, despite growing calls for his resignation.
The 93-year-old was put under house arrest during a military takeover on Wednesday amid a power struggle over, who would succeed him.
The military said on Friday it was “engaging” with Mr Mugabe and had been arresting “criminals” around the president, but gave no names.
Several senior officials are said to have been detained since Wednesday, while others are still at large.
In a televised statement, the military said it would advise the nation on the outcome of talks with Mr Mugabe “as soon as possible”.
The Army moved in after Mr Mugabe, last week, sacked vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, signalling that he favoured his wife, Grace Mugabe, to take over his ZANU-PF party and thus the Presidency.
