Impeachment Process set up to Dethrone Robert Mugabe

Published

on

Zimbabwe’s current president Robert Mugabe is expected to be dethroned from his powers after the ruling party on Monday ordered impeachment proceedings to begin against him, and is quite confident of his removal within a couple of days.

Deputy secretary for legal affairs of ZANU-PF, Paul Mangwana said lawmakers would move a motion for impeachment on Tuesday and set up a parliamentary committee, and on Wednesday the committee would report back to all the lawmakers and “we vote him out.”

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe Unwilling to Step Down

Paul Mangwana told reporters that the main charge against the 93-year-old Mugabe is “allowing his wife to usurp government powers” and that “he is too old and cannot even walk without help,”. He said the ruling party needs the backing of the MDC opposition group to have enough votes in parliament but “we have talked to them and they are supporting us.”

Mugabe’s defiance in stepping down from the power has come off as extremely surprising. The president was put under military house arrest last week and was expected to step down.

We have nothing to do with the ouster of Robert Mugabe: China

The military wants to offer a voluntary resignation for Robert Mugabe who is one of Africa’s last remaining liberation leaders. However, Mugabe is using whatever leverage he has left to try to preserve his legacy or even protect himself and his family from possible prosecution.

The government on Monday urged Cabinet ministers to pursue business as usual, amid the political confusion. Meanwhile, opposition activists and the influential liberation war veterans association announced more demonstrations will come up in order to pressure Mugabe to step down.

Veterans association leader Chris Mutsvangwa lent his firm opinion at a press conference “Your time is up”. He suggested that the military was still beholden to Mugabe and compelled to protect him because he is officially their “commander in chief”. According to The war veterans’ Association, Mugabe is “derelict of his executive duty”, he said.
