BREAKING: Mugabe fires VP Mnangagwa

Zimbabwe's information minister has announced the dismissal of Emmerson Mnangagwa as vice president for showing "traits of disloyalty".

Simon Khaya Moyo said on Monday that President Robert Mugabe, 93, has fired the vice president who had always been viewed as his successor.

"His Excellency the President Of Zimbabwe...has exercised his powers to relieve Hon VP Mnangagwa of his position as VP of the Republic Of Zimbabwe with immediate effect".

The 75-year-old former intelligence chief had been one of the favourites to succeed the Zimbabwean President, having been appointed vice president in 2014.

Open Enrollment Begins for State's Health Insurance Marketplace Wednesday
Many "navigators"-individuals and organizations that help consumers enroll in marketplace plans-are facing sharp budget cuts". Almost half of counties in the USA are expected to have only one insurer offering plans in 2018.

Mnangagwa, who survived an attempt on his life in Gwanda this year through food poisoning was key in the Zanu PF government since 1980 where he held several cabinet posts. Grace Mugabe, 52, did not fight in that war.

According to sources, whose reports and facts have been verified, staff at the office of the Vice President, at the corner of Third Street and Central Avenue were instructed to pack all personal belongings and clear the building.

While the ruling party has named 93-year-old Mugabe as its presidential candidate, there's doubt he will live to see out another five-year term.
