Zimbabwe Military Removes President Mugabe From Power

The military of Zimbabwe took control of the government removing President Robert Mugabe, who is 93 and has been leading Zimbabwe for 37 years.

The military is not calling it a coup but rather a transition of government.

A few weeks ago, Mugabe fired his vice-president and named his wife to take his place.

The fear is that the president of Zimbabwe started to lose his power and was trying to create a dynasty.

The now-former president and his wife are safe but remain confined to their home, but will speak for the first time today since his confinement at a college graduation.
