There is a cloud of uncertainty hovering around the nook and cranny of Zimbabwe.

President Robert Mugabe is said to be confined to his home in Harare but unconfirmed reports say his wife Grace, who was bidding to succeed him as president, has fled to Namibia.

The military's action followed the sacking of Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a fierce rival of Mrs Mugabe.

His whereabouts are also unclear.
