Long-serving Zimbabwean leader Robert Gabriel Mugabe has finally resigned. Mugabe’s resignation was confirmed by the Speaker of the Zimbabwean Parliament Jacob Mudenda a while ago.

The 93-year-old liberation hero resigned through a letter to the speaker where he stated that he was stepping down to allow for a smooth transition of power. News of Mugabe’s resignation has been met by jubilant scenes in the nation’s capital Harare.

Earlier, Zimbabwe’s parliament had begun formal proceedings to impeach Mugabe, with its speaker announcing to the house that a motion to remove the President from office had been brought forward by the war veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa and seconded by an opposition politician.

The full motion was expected to accuse Mugabe of allowing his wife to “usurp” his position, and of being too old to effectively carry out his duties.

Mugabe had previously refused to resign despite last week’s military takeover, and days of protests.

He has been in power since the country’s independence from Britain in 1980.

  3. Finally a new era begins in Zimbabwe.. It is a pity that the ending for Mugabe has been so unceremonious. What a shame . One thing for certain is that he at one time served his country well but then greed from a woman ‘ s desires for endless wealth and luxiouries has costed him his honor and dignity .

  11. On a lighter note : the zim. Social cooperating partners were offering sicial services at affordable prices to any one in need . With this new development most of them might go back home creating a sharp rise in pricing in the social sector by our local social providers.
    The resignation of Mugabe is good for some but bad for others socially.
