Thousands of people in Zimbabwe want President Robert Mugabe to quit. The army removed him from power after he fired his deputy. Mr Mugabe wanted his wife to be the next president. Members of Mr Mugabe's party asked him to quit. People who fought in Zimbabwe's war for independence also asked him to quit.

Robert Mugabe is 93 years old. He is the oldest world leader. Mr Mugabe fought for independence from British rule. Zimbabwe was called Rhodesia. In 1980, Mugabe won Zimbabwe's elections and became leader. A 34-year-old Zimbabwean man said: "I've been waiting all my life for this day….We are free at last."
