Despite multiple social media posts indicating that China’s President Xi Jinping is under house arrest and has been dismissed as the leader of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), no confirmation from the country’s ruling Chinese Communist Party or state media has yet arrived.

On Twitter, claims of a military coup and PLA trucks advancing towards the capital, Beijing, are being debated, as is Xi’s purported house imprisonment. Xi Jinping recently went to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit in Uzbekistan, where he met with world leaders like Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


Gordon G.

There’s a lot of smoke, which indicates that there’s a fire somewhere inside the #CCP. “China is in turmoil.”

Another Twitter user claimed to have photographs of PLA military vehicles on their way to Beijing on September 22. On September 22, PLA military trucks will arrive in Beijing. Starting in Huanlai County near Beijing and finishing in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, the total procession can be up to 80 kilometers long. Meanwhile, rumor has it that #XiJinping was arrested after #CCP superiors dismissed him as PLA (sic) leader, “Jennifer Zeng tweeted.

Aside from the military takeover and what seems to be XI’s house arrest, no commercial flights are expected to fly over Beijing today. Meanwhile, Indian journalist Aadil Brar, who focuses on China, speculated that Xi may be quarantined after returning from Uzbekistan and that the Chinese President is not present in public.

The speculative rumors of XI’s detention came after China sentenced two former ministers to death earlier this week. Reports say that the two ministers and the four other officials who were given life sentences were all part of the same “political faction.”. Six people have been sentenced as part of China’s anti-corruption effort ahead of a political conference next month, in which XI is likely to earn a historic third term.
