It is now two and a half months since Zimbabwe’s coup or military assisted transition. While there has not been a widespread outbreak of violence, there have been notable changes to the patterns of disorder in Zimbabwe. These include:
- An increase in the use of military in place of the police for controlling the civilian population. The police have largely been relegated to minimal interaction with the public.
- A continuation of land invasions and competition for agricultural land.
- A rise in very localized competition for resources and territory that was held by deactivated factions of ZANU PF.
