Mugabe May Resign Today – CNN

After sending the world into shock with a national address that many thought would end in a resignation on Sunday night, Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe is expected to tender his resignation today, according to news channel CNN.

CNN reports that a draft letter of resignation is ready for president Mugabe to to sign. It’s understood President Mugabe and his wife flamboyant Grace will be granted immunity.

BELOW IS THE FULL CNN REPORT

Zimbabwe’s long-time president Robert Mugabe has agreed to the terms of his resignation and a letter has been drafted, an official source with direct knowledge of negotiations told CNN

The source said that the generals had given into many of Mugabe’s demands including full immunity for himself and his wife Grace, and that he would keep his private properties.

According to the source, the aim of Sunday’s televised address — in which Mugabe appeared to resist calls to step aside — was to ensure the veteran leader openly declared the military’s actions to be constitutional.

For the resignation to formally take place, however, a letter must first be sent to the speaker of Parliament, added the source.

Mugabe had stunned the nation on Sunday when he refused to say in a live televised address if he was stepping down.

His party had given Mugabe, who has been under house arrest since the military seized power, 24 hours to resign or be impeached. On Saturday, thousands of Zimbabweans had taken to the streets calling for him to go.

But in a bizarre and rambling speech, Mugabe instead insisted he was going nowhere, and that he would see his political party Zanu-PF through its congress in a few weeks.

Zimbabweans who’d been glued to state television to watch the speech live came out into the streets afterward, some in shock.

Harare resident Tina Madzimure called the speech “an embarrassment really. He made a fool out of the generals.”

“This man will go to his grave with Zimbabwe in his hands,” she told CNN.

    Leadership is granted by the governed and if they dont need you, Please leave in peace rather than forcing yourself on people.this bad leadership style should not be tolerated. 37years is a long time, what havent you done that you feel you can do better ? or does it mean that some individuals are indispensable. its time to go #mugabe must go.

    Mugabe’s party the ZANU.PF ar to blame for Mugabe’s arrogance. A few months ago this is the party which supported Mugabe’s prolonged stay in power.This man is too old to run the affairs of a nation as could be seen from his failure to read thru the drafted speech fluently. I can only hope Dr Kaunda will persuade him to resign so that Peace can be restored in that country.

  24. Dont Africans trust themselves?

    ZR, Why is an African Media like yours relying on a foreign media to tell them the truth about whats happening in Africa? You see because of your trust and belief in bazungus you have reported a lie. You believed it is true becasue it was said by bazungu

  25. Hotness

    I was very perplexed when I heard that the old man has refused to relinquish power even now ,iam still comteplating about it.otherwise, things are likely to become sour very soon. Let us remember our friends (zims) in prayers so that God almighty can intervene.

  34. Carlos Maliti

    Mugabe fears to be prosecuted once he leaves office because he has enough crimes he has committed during his tenure of office

    • nineo

      But how will they prosecute this man because he will be sleeping the whole time he will be in court? He will not be able to walk on his own, and they will have to be repeating everything 100 times for him to respond! Does he even remember what the word “scared” means?????
