The Dawn of a New Era in Zimbabwe

In yet another show or respect to an aged-revolutionary, Zimbabwe's ruling party, Zanu-PF, while firing Nonagenarian President Robert Mugabe from the presidency earlier today, has still accorded him until 5:00 a.m.(EST) tomorrow to resign the office, or face impeachment. Former Vice-President, Emmerson 'the Crocodile' Mnangagwa, has been appointed President. Grace Mugabe has been expelled from the ruling party.

Today's action by Mugabe's political party, essential ushers in a new era in Zimbabwe, where Mugabe, 93, has ruled since 1980. He is a veteran of the African nation's 1970s revolutionary war that gained independence from Great Britain in 1980. Some members of Zimbabwe's government, including some senior members of the Zimbabwe Defense Force(ZDF), its chief, General Constantino Chiwenga along Mnangagwa, are also revolutionaries of the war of independence.

Mugabe dismissed Mnangagwa, 71,  from the vice-presidency over a week ago, which prompted a warning from General Chiwenga that the armed forces would not sit idly and allow criminal accusations against revolutionaries of the nation's independence. It was believed Mugabe was purging Zimbabwean revolutionaries from close to the presidency in preference for his wife, Grace, 52. 

Mugabe's final straw which 'broke the camel's back' came when General Chiwenga warning was construed as being treacherous. The next day, Wednesday, the army seized power placing Mugabe and his wife under house arrest.

The Zanu-PF party sacked Mugabe today according him the respect of resigning by tomorrow morning, thus paving the way for the ascension of Mnangagwa as the next President of the economically-challenged African nation tomorrow. Said one senior Zanu-PF official as quoted by the BBC-News: "It's the dawn of a new era. Mugabe can go farming."
