Zimbabwe's ruling party Zanu-PF has sacked Robert Mugabe as its leader, BBC reported a short while ago.

It has appointed former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa - sacked by Mr Mugabe two weeks ago - as leader.

The sacking of Mr Mnangagwa had prompted an extraordinary chain of events as the military intervened to block Mr Mugabe, 93, from installing his wife Grace in his place.

Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans attended street protests on Saturday to demonstrate against the Mugabes.

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

    It had to happen. He was acclaimed as a hero forty years ago, and he could have just continued the policies economic and industrial policies that prevailed during the "white dominated" era. After serving as President for a reasonable time, he should have retired gracefully like the Late great Nelson Mandela rather than get kicked out and be regarded as a curse. Instead, he became a despot, plundered the nation and now, in his last stages he is left with enormous wealth but no satisfaction. Sound familiar!!? Good lesson.A nation cannot be ruled without the consent of the majority.

    A much needed break for an impoverised African nation in the grip of a brutal leader.

    An eye opener for our politicians who want to sell the "patriotic" label. Corruption is not accepted as time wears on.

    Hope that Sri Lankan politicians learn lot of lessons from up and down of Mugabe.

    Very good lesson for all errant leaders. This is a rare occurrence that an intervention of military to oust a bad leader and hands over the Govt.again to the right person to carry out democratic regime, without forming a military rule.

    A most sensible move. Hope old man Mugabe has sense left in him to gracefully relinquish duties as President. Despots please note what happens when you're power hungry.

    Sambo Sunday, 19 November 2017 08:44 PM

    The same should happen in Sri Lanka as well. Throw out the dishonest if we are to ever prosper.

    He is a dictator of the worst kind.

    It took too long to neutralize him. I was there in Zimbabwe soon after independence (1980) and it was too sad to see the impoverishment and collapse of the society. I witnessed the suffering of the people. True he fought the guerrilla war to get the independence and he should get the credit for that but no one can blame the West for what he has done to country since 1984. It was 1 Zim $ = 1.47 US $ back in 1980.
