Army leaders are at odds with Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe and his ruling party.
On Tuesday, the ruling ZANU-PF party said the country's army commander "meant to incite insurrection." A day earlier, Gen.

The general was talking about a recent shuffle in the party.

With tensions running so high, questions began to swirl about the likelihood of a coup.
It didn't help that on Tuesday, a handful of tanks and military vehicles were seen near the capital city Harare. News outlets pointed out it was unclear whether or not the troop movement was routine or a show of force.
