Mugabe Makes First Public Appearance After Military Takeover

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe attended the graduation ceremony of Zimbabwe Open University in Harare on Friday morning. This is Mugabe’s first public appearance since the military seized control of the country.

The 93-year-old appeared without his wife, Grace, and Higher and Tertiary education minister Jonathan Moyo, who is reportedly in the custody of the army, Zimbabwe Newsday reports.

Mugabe was placed on a house arrest following the coup on Tuesday, and was seen for the first time in a group photo with military leaders and negotiators on Thursday evening.
