HARARE, Zimbabwe – Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has been removed as the leader of the ruling ZANU-PF party, party sources say.

This comes just less than a week after the military seized power in the southern African country.

Former vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was sacked by Mugabe this month, has been appointed as new party leader according to ZANU-PF sources.

A source told Reuters that “He has been expelled,” adding, “Mnangagwa is our new leader.”

“A resolution has been adopted to recall the president and elevate Mnangagwa as the party president,” another delegate was quoted by AFP as saying.
