Zim military urges marchers to be orderly, warns against ‘agent provocateurs’

Zimbabwe's military is urging the thousands upon thousands of people streaming through the capital to be orderly and "vigilant against agent provocateurs" who might wish to discredit the push to get longtime President Robert Mugabe to step aside.

Tens of thousands of people have turned out to a rally that is possible because of military intervention

The new statement read out on state-run television comes as much of Harare’s population appears to be marching toward Mugabe’s official residence, the State House. Mugabe lives in a mansion elsewhere in the city, however, and is under house arrest.

The military thanks the marchers and says its “operation” to arrest some top officials close to Mugabe and his wife continues.
