Talk that Zimbabwe’s military may “forcibly retire” Mugabe ahead of next week’s ZANU-PF party congress to prevent his wife from succeeding him (see here). This kind of talk is standard fare for Zimbabwe, but it does underscore the uncertainty associated with the congress and ensuing leadership transition, so I am going a little longer on Mugabe.

Deep look at Chad under Deby in World Politics Review (here) describes a brittle regime kept whole by oil money and international support, calls out 2016 presidential election as a vulnerable spot for the incumbent.
