Zimbabwe has finally witnessed Mugabe’s resignation. Mugabe’s resign came after its 37-year reign of autocratic control and brutality on the people of Zimbabwe which gained independence in 1980.

Impeachment Process set up to Dethrone Robert Mugabe

Zimbabwe gained independence from Britain, after which the country faced the worst-ever political crisis under the leadership of Robert Mugabe.

After dominating every aspect of Zimbabwean public life for decades, the 93-year-old was made to resign. The bombshell announcement was made by the Speaker at a special joint session of parliament.

Mugabe resigns: – Wild jubilation on the streets of Harare

People erupted into ecstatic cheers and frenzied dancing on the streets after Mugabe resigned. “It’s shocking, that guy is powerful, very powerful,” said Barber Wright Chirombe who was also taking part in the euphoric celebrations.

Jacob Mudenda reading out the letter on behalf of the president said “I Robert Gabriel Mugabe in terms of section 96 of the constitution of Zimbabwe hereby formally tender my resignation… with immediate effect,”

“My decision to resign is voluntary on my part. It arises from my concern for the welfare of the people of Zimbabwe and my desire to ensure a smooth, peaceful and non-violent transfer of power that underpins national security, peace and stability.”

His grip on power was shattered last week when armored military vehicles took to the streets, blockaded parliament and placed the president under house arrest in an operation that had all the hallmarks of a coup.

Efforts to position his wife Grace as his successor triggered fury in the military that had underpinned his regime.Zimbabwe was ruled by Mugabe almost unopposed since its independence in 1980 but

According to the generals, they were simply “arresting” criminals around Mugabe — a reference to Grace’s supporters. They even allowed the one-time liberation hero to appear at a public function and deliver a televised speech.

ZANU-PF began parliamentary proceedings to have Robert Mugabe impeached as the crisis grew. The party played a major instrument in Mugabe’s ruthless decades-long rule.
