The endgame might be on for President Robert Mugabe,93 years of age,who has ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years now. Since yesterday,the military has taken the State Broadcaster,ZBC and has kept the president under arrest. This incident followed the sacking of his deputy,Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa last week.
The former vice-president who is believed to have sympathisers in the military,may be ushered in as president in place of Mr Mugabe,who to all intents should have relinquished power before now rather than being disgracefully forced out now. The over-ambitious wife of Mr Mugabe who has campaigning so hard to replace the husband is believed to have triggered this current crisis in Zimbabwe.Grace Mugabe,52,a former typist is widely known to have coaxed the president into sacking his vice.Now reports have it she is either under house arrest or on the run.
