(People's Daily) - Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe was dismissed as the leader of ruling ZANU-PF party on November 19, multiple media reports said, as pressure intensifies for him to step down as president.

"He has been expelled," one of delegates said. 

"Mnangagwa is our new leader," Three other delegates confirmed Mugabe's dismissal.

Ex-vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, who had been fired by Mr Mugabe two weeks ago, has been appointed as the first secretary and president of the party. 

The emergency meeting is also recalling first lady Grace Mugabe as head of the women's league "forever." 

The motion is yet to be formalized but will be complete shortly, reports said.
