Harare: Zimbabwe’s ruling party Zanu-PF on Sunday sacked President Robert Mugabe as its leader.

It has appointed former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, sacked by Mugabe two weeks ago, as the leader, the BBC reported.

The sacking of Mnangagwa had prompted an extraordinary chain of events as the military intervened to block 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.

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