Nothing says "there has been a coup" more than a man in military uniform appearing unannounced on state TV late at night to say "there has not been a coup".#Zimbabwe #Zimbabwecoup pic.twitter.com/qCVHfzaGT9— Tom Green (@TomDGreen) November 15, 2017

The international community is confused about whether this is a coup or not. In fact, it is not a coup. It is a “Bond Coup” - it has a 1:1 value with a coup but can only be used in Zimbabwe. - Author Unknown #Zimbabwecoup #MugabeHasFallen asleep
