Army Removes President Robert Mugabe from Power

Days ago we reported that the Military might take over the affairs of the Zimbabwean government. Well, it has come to pass as the military today toppled President Robert Mugabe out of office.

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, has held on to power for over 37 years, since independence from the UK, and only last week he sacked vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Few days ago, Zimbabwe’s army chief General Chiwenga has warned that the Army might have to take over the affairs of the country if those “purging” the country and last night army seized power. Mugabe was reportedly arrested along with his wife but has now agreed to step aside and negotiating for his for his wife Grace to leave the country unharmed.

Zimbabwean Military Might Take Over - General Chiwenga

According to reports,  the earlier deposed Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa, will take over.

The army released a press statement and it read:

“Last night the first family was detained and are safe, both for the constitution and the sanity of the nation this was necessary. Neither Zimbabwe nor ZANU are owned by Mugabe and his wife. Today begins a fresh new era and comrade Mnangagwa will help us achieve a better Zimbabwe.”

More to come.
