The fate of ageing Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe has been decided today by his party Zanu-PF, when they replaced him with His ousted vice for the 2018 Presidential elections in the country.  

The next action is slated for later this evening when the military command would be persuading him to resign honourably from power.

President Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule is gradually but surely coming to an end.  He attended a university graduation ceremony on Friday, in a show of defiance after the talks with General Constantino Chiwenga, who led the military 'Push'. 

On Saturday, tens of thousands of overjoyed demonstrators flooded the streets of Zimbabwe in peaceful celebrations marking the apparent end of his long and authoritarian rule.

Mugabe’s grip on power was broken last week when the military took over, angered at his wife Grace’s emergence as the leading candidate to succeed the 93-year-old president.

Mugabe — the world’s oldest head of state — remains national president for the time being but now faces overwhelming opposition from the generals, much of the Zimbabwean public and from his own party.

Firerinthebone gathered that “(Mugabe’s) wife and close associates have taken advantage of his frail condition to usurp power and loot state resources,” party official Obert Mpofu said.

Army chiefs who led the takeover were due to hold further talks with the president later Sunday.

The majority of Zimbabweans have only known life under Mugabe’s rule, which has been defined by violent suppression, economic collapse and international isolation.

The president, who is feted in parts of Africa as the continent’s last surviving liberation leader serving as a head of state, is in fragile health. But he previously said he would stand in elections next year that would see him remain in power until he was nearly 100-years-old.

He became prime minister on Zimbabwe’s independence from Britain in 1980 and then president in 1987.  But the country's economy nose-dived since 2000 when many white-owned farms were seized, leaving the key agricultural sector in ruins.
