There are reports that the military in Harare has said: "We are in control." This comes after reports of explosions and gunfire near the University of Zimbabwe in the capital.
A Harare resident told AFP that gunfire erupted near President Robert Mugabe's private residence in Borrowdale in Harare in the early hours of Wednesday.

"From the direction of his house, we heard about 30 or 40 shots fired over three or four minutes soon after 2:00 am," a resident who lives close to Mugabe's mansion in the suburb of Borrowdale told AFP.

Several ZBC workers were manhandled, two members of staff and a human rights activist said.

Shortly afterwards, three explosions rocked the centre of the southern African nation's capital, near the University of Zimbabwe campus, witnesses said.
