Mugabe's party to launch impeachment process Tuesday - MP

Zimbabwe's ruling party meeting to expel Robert Mugabe

One young law student said: "I am the most disappointed 19-year-old as I was expecting Mugabe to resign".

In his speech, he also noted he would attend the Zanu-PF party's special congress next month - giving no indication he planned to step down anytime soon.

Now, the ZANU-PF has given the president until mid-day Monday to resign or face impeachment.

Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao was quoted by global media as saying his uncle and his wife were prepared to die for what they regard as correct.

It is expected that impeachment proceedings would be initiated in parliament on Tuesday if he fails to resign.

Mugabe fires Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to resolve a succession dispute.

The bishops further called on all Zimbabweans to avoid utterances that could further inflame tensions and lead the country towards a precipice.

November 16: State-run media publish extraordinary photos of a smiling Mugabe shaking hands with the army commander at the State House amid negotiations on the president's exit as the military tries to avoid accusations of a coup.

In a televised address late Sunday, the 93-year-old defied expectations that he would bring the curtain down on his reign, pitching the country into a second week of political crisis.

Zanu PF said they have invoked their constitutional right to recall Mugabe as president by Thursday, and to replace him with Mnangagwa.

Derek Matyszak, an analyst at the Pretoria-based Institute for Security Studies, said Mugabe's address raised the stakes even further.

ZANU-PF's chief whip, Lovemore Matuke, confirmed impeachment would go ahead, the Associated Press reported.

Chiwenga, the general who announced last week on Monday that if Mugabe does not act against his wife the army will move in, escaped arrest when he returned from China about two weeks ago after Mnangagwa had fled the country.

Zimbabweans are anxious about their country's fate after the increasingly isolated President Robert Mugabe did not resign in a televised speech as many had expected.

"Your time is up", veterans association leader Chris Mutsvangwa told reporters on Sunday night.

Zimbabweans must take advantage of the impending new political dispensation to demand strong institutions from those leading the current process lest today's liberators might morph into another creature that could come back to devour this newly found freedom.

Meanwhile, eight leaders from different Christian denominations - including Catholic, Evangelical, Charismatic, and Protestant - issued a statement saying the overthrow of Mugabe could actually be an opportunity for the birth of a new country.

We will probably never know what really went on behind the scenes‚ why the generals appeared to be concealing some pages of the speech under their chairs chair and whether Mugabe had a full appreciation of what was happening in his country.
