Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe was ousted by a "military coup" that forced his resignation, former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo said in an interview with the BBC broadcast on Thursday.

"It is completely unsustainable for anyone to say Mugabe resigned voluntarily when we know the army took over all institutions of the state and confined him to his residence". "They (soldiers) subjected it to some 15 minutes of gunfire and amazingly after those 15 minutes... the sounds of gunfire just went silent and we waited there for something like 10 minutes and there was no movement or sign of the special forces... and we then managed to get out of the house and we were amazed they were no longer there", he added.

Moyo told the BBC that "it is not illegal to support Grace Mugabe".

"We have a. constitution that the people of Zimbabwe made for themselves and it has been broken and it has been broken via a coup", he said.
