Army chief warns of coup if "sell outs" win

From the Nation (Nairobi) via all Africa:

The commander of Zimbabwe's army, General Constantine Chiwenga has warned that he will overturn the constitutional order if Robert Mugabe loses to "sell outs and agents of the West."

"Elections are coming and the army will not support or salute sell-outs and agents of the West before, during and after the presidential elections," Gen Chiwenga told Zimbabwe Standard, a privately owned newspaper.

"We will not support anyone other than President Mugabe who has sacrificed a lot for this country."

Meanwhile, the European Union raised concerns today about the fairness of elections set for March 29, noting that European observers had not been invited to monitor the vote, adds Reuters
