Mugabe Resignation: AU must lead charge against entrenched leaders - Political scientist

23 Novembre 2017

British Prime Minister Ms Theresa May said Britain as Zimbabwe's "oldest friend" was ready to assist the country in its rebuilding efforts.

His resignation was announced by the speaker of Zimbabwe's parliament Jacob Mudenda.

After 37 years as president Robert Gabriel Mugabe finally agreed to resign his post on the back of internal and external pressure.

"As Zimbabwe's oldest friend we will do all we can to support this, working with our global and regional partners to help the country achieve the brighter future it so deserves". Meanwhile, in South Africa, most Members of Parliament expressed the view that while the military intervention in Zimbabwe must not be celebrated, the people of Zimbabwe should be commended for a peaceful transition.

Reports said that Sasikala camp may move the Madras High Court against the poll panel's verdict. The EC had concluded hearing the AIADMK symbol case and reserved the order on November 8.

A letter from Mr Mugabe said that the decision was voluntary and that he had made it to allow a smooth transfer of power, the Reuters news agency reports.The surprise announcement halted an impeachment hearing that had begun against him. "Furthermore we would like to call on them to work together across the political divide to ensure that the country is taken forward and that never again does a Zimbabwean suffer oppression by another Zimbabwean", the statement read.

"It's just one of those conspiracy theories, in Africa once something goes wrong people find solace in blaming the West for it", he said.

"An orderly and irreversible transition towards genuinely democratic elections is our shared objective..."

"It's time now for a new future and how Robert Mugabe spends the rest of his years is very much a matter for his countrymen".
