Last week, the country’s military deployed armored vehicles to the Zimbabwean capital city of Harare, confining Mugabe, 93, to his house, while ZANU-PF urged the leader to step down. On Monday, following Mugabe's failure to meet the ruling party's ultimatum to resign, the party decided to begin impeachment proceedings.
