MPs Celebrate During Impeachment Process As Mugabe Resigns
Legislators started celebrating wildly during the Impeachment process at the Harare International Conference Centre after the speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda, had said that he had received a notice of resignation from President Robert Mugabe. The notice came during a joint sitting of the House of Assembly and the Senate to impeach President Robert Gabriel.
As Mudenda was presiding over the impeachment, Justice Minister Happyton Bonyongwe interrupted him, carrying a letter. Speaker Mudenda then asked the MPs to excuse him before announcing that the letter had come.
Mudenda said that he had an announcement to make, before going on to read:
My decision to resign is voluntary on my party and arises from my concern for the welfare of people in Zimbabwe and my desires to see a smooth, peaceful and non-violent transfer of power.
Kindly give public notice of my resignation as soon as possible as required by the constitution.
