Zang wrote in his tweet, “PLA military vehicles are heading towards Beijing on September 22. Starting from Huanlai County near Beijing, the convoy ended in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province. The entire convoy is 80 km long. Meanwhile, Rumor has it that senior CCP leaders have arrested Jinping after removing him from the post of head of the PLA.”
