Embattled President Robert Mugabe has resigned, Speaker of the Parliament Jacob Mudenda said on Tuesday…
Mudenda made the announcement when the two Houses of Parliament — Upper and Lower — were seated at the Harare International Conference Centre in the capital on Tuesday afternoon moving a motion to impeach Mugabe.
He said he had received a letter from the President, bringing the impeachment process to halt.
The development brings to end the 37-year rule by the 93-year-old, in power since Zimbabwe attained independence from colonial rule in 1980.
