Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe Axed From Ruling Party

President Robert Mugabe addressed Zimbabweans on television on Sunday night, acknowledging discontent in party and country, but failed to meet expectations that he would announce his resignation.

This was despite the decision of the ruling party's central committee earlier in the day to depose him as party leader. Both he and his wife, Grace, were removed from their party posts and he was replaced as party leader by former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa.
