Robert Mugabe resigned as president of Zimbabwe Tuesday. “I Robert Gabriel Mugabe in terms of section 96 of the constitution of Zimbabwe hereby formally tender my resignation… with immediate effect,” said speaker Mudenda, reading the letter.
Former Vice President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, had warned embattled Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to leave power or be humiliated.
This is contained in a statement he signed on Tuesday.
Exile Mnangagwa, who was fired by Mugabe from cabinet and Zanu-PF two weeks ago, confirmed that he had received communication from the President inviting him for talks.
“I can confirm that President Robert Gabriel Mugabe made contact with me and invited me to return home for a discussion on the current political events in the nation.
