Mugabe was forced to resign on Tuesday, after the army confined him to his house, his party sacked him as its leader and thousands took to the streets to demanding his resignation in a tumultuous week.

On November 14, the Zimbabwean military took charge of the country when tanks rolled into the capital. Early on November 15, the army seized control of state television ZBC and said it was acting against “criminals” surrounding Mugabe, but they insisted their actions were not a coup.
