The notorious Military Intelligence Department is behind reports of a looming coup in Zimbabwe, former Cabinet Minister Walter has said.

Mzembi was responding to reports that the military has instructed  President Emmerson Mnangagwa to leave power.

"Stories about Mnangagwa resigning, Chiwenga taking over or another coup in the making, are cooked by the MID as mental games to keep a nation hopeful about change, should be dismissed with contempt and seen as part of continuing mental slavery of a people," Mzembi said.

His statements come a few days after Professor Jonathan Moyo said the army had given Mnangagwa an offer to leave the office.

Moyo claimed Mnangagwa wants at least US$10 million, immunity from prosecution and a "presidential status that includes a modest motorcade."

"Mnangagwa has been warm to such a deal, since his Kwekwe chat with Chiwenga but his cronies and cartelists (sic) are not happy with it. Already, the likes of Kuda Tagwirei have become regular if not daily visitors at State House with whispers that they are assessing possible arrangements and budgets for Glens and Biddulphs removal options, should an emergency arise for Mnangagwa and family to quickly exit State House in a negotiated departure," Moyo claimed in the interview.
