Zimbabwe's ruling party sacks president as leader, expels first lady

Mugabe is set to meet military leaders and a motorcade has been seen leaving his private residence.

In a report by BBC, the party has appointed ex-vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, who had been fired by Mr Mugabe two weeks ago.

In a report  by Reuters, the Zimbabwean First Lady, Grace Mugabe has also been expelled from the party altogether.

On Saturday, November 18, 2017, tens of thousands of Zimbabweans attended street protests to demonstrate against the Mugabes.

The head of the influential War Veterans Association, Chris Mutsvangwa, told Reuters news agency that the party was also starting the process of removing Mr Mugabe as the president of the country.

A tweet revealed a video of people -obviously party faithfuls- dancing after the decision to remove Mugabe was taken.
