President Robert Mugabe has arrived to officiate the Zimbabwe Open University graduation ceremony currently underway in Harare.
This is Mugabe’s first public appearance since the army seized control of the country on Tuesday.
Mugabe appeared without his wife, Grace.
Higher and Tertiary education minister Jonathan Moyo, who is reportedly in the custody of the army, is also absent from the ceremony, with his deputy Godwin Gandawa sitting in his position.
Mugabe’s appearance follows a statement issued by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces earlier this morning, which stated there is progress in the negotiations with Mugabe.
