Zimbabwe's Mugabe appears in public

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has appeared in first public appearance since a military seizure of power in the country.

Mugabe was present at a university graduation ceremony in Harare on Friday.

Wearing a blue and yellow academic gown and mortar board hat, the 93-year-old sat in large wooden chair at the front the hall.

A Reuters report says, he was greeted by ululations from the crowd as he declared the ceremony open.

Political sources say the military seizure is aimed at ending his 37 years in office.
