Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has been fired as leader of the ruling ZANU-PF party and replaced by Emmerson Mnangagwa, the deputy he sacked this month.
“He has been expelled,” one of delegates told Reuters. “Mnangagwa is our new leader.”
Zimbabwe war veterans’ leader Chris Mutsvangwa confirmed that ZANU-PF had replaced Mugabe with Mnangagwa as leader.
He added that ZANU-PF was starting the process to remove Mugabe as president of Zimbabwe.
Mugabe’s wife, Grace, was also expelled from the ruling party, according to a party source.
