Zimbabwe : Mugabe appears in public as uncertainty continues

 Harare,Nov 17(Fast Mail):-President Robert Mugabe has made an appearance at a graduation ceremony in the capital despite his house arrest. But a powerful war veterans group is calling for his ouster and for protests against the longtime leader.

The crisis surrounding the 93-year-old president came to a head when the army seized control of the country on Wednesday.

Mugabe was put under house arrest in his compound in Harare, with the military taking over state television and blocking key roads. On Thursday, however, state-run television showed the president meeting with military Commander Constantino Chiweng at the State House, where he apparently also met with South African envoys. The report said the talks on resolving the crisis were ongoing.

Sources quoted by the AFP and Reuters said that Mugabe was refusing to resign, despite the mounting pressure.

 Earlier, South African President Jacob Zuma told the parliament in Cape Town it was too early to take a "firm decision" on a political situation that will shortly "be becoming very clear."

African Union President Alpha Conde told  the army should restore constitutional order and that the Union in "no case accepted the seizure of power by force."

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai called on Mugabe to resign.

Despite the political chaos, people in Harare began to return to their normal lives on Thursday as schools and shops remained open in the capital, though soldiers remained posted outside key government buildings.
