Zimbabwe ruling party sacks Mugabe

HARARE, November 19, 2017

Zimbabwe's ruling party has sacked Robert Mugabe as its leader, as pressure intensifies for him to step down as president, a BBC report said.
Zanu-PF appointed ex-Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was fired by Mugabe two weeks ago, in his place.
The party has given Mugabe, 93, until 1000 GMT on Monday to resign as president, or face impeachment.
The military intervened last week, reportedly to block him from installing his wife as his successor.
The first lady, Grace Mugabe, has been expelled from the party altogether.
Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans attended street protests on Saturday, demonstrating against the Mugabes.
