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

Zimbabwean Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda announced Mugabe's resignation on Tuesday when the two Houses of Parliament - Upper and Lower - were seated at the Harare International Conference Centre in the capital, moving a motion to impeach Mugabe.

In the wake of Mugabe's resignation, Galz has called on the country's next leaders to assist the Zimbabwean LGBTIQ community in their efforts toward equality. "We are hoping that our comrades in Zimbabwe will rebuild Zimbabwe to its former self‚" said ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe.

"The resignation of Robert Mugabe provides Zimbabwe with an opportunity to forge a new path free of the oppression that characterised his rule", May said.

Lawmakers roared in jubilation and people have begun celebrating in the streets. 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.

He said the ANC did not want to be judges or direct Zanu-PF about who should fill which leadership position.


"Declaration by an ambassador of a western country to say "now we'll help Zimbabwe".

Whatever short-term arrangements the government may establish, the path forward must lead to free and fair elections.

There now appears to be some level of "coup envy" amongst South Africans.

The forum said Zimbabweans' victory gave hope to the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Swaziland, Zambia and Lesotho who are now struggling under the heavy yoke of oppression.

"And yet, tragically, he allowed that legacy to be squandered and his country went to rack and ruin and in some cases his people were driven to the brink of starvation". Robert Mugabe squandered the vast potential of a remarkable country.
