Uganda's president is not too happy about Zimbabwe's coup

The country has called for calm and warned against attempts to violate the Zimbabwe’s constitution.

The State Minister for International Relations, Mr Henry Okello Oryem said Mr Mugabe’s "government is the legitimate leadership" and the country will not recognize the military coup.

During a live broadcast the military denied it was staging a coup even as chaos and gun shots were heard in Harare.

Mr. Oryem said under the current African Union rules, no African state can recognise a military coup on the continent by any military officer or group implying that Uganda is mandated to side with Mr Mugabe’s government.

Adding that the people of Uganda and Zimbabwe do enjoy cordial relationship.

The State Minister added the government was closely following the developments in Zimbabwe and has directed the Ugandan mission in South Africa to update it on developments in Harare to decide the way forward.
