 ZANU-PF SUMMONS MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AS RESIGNATION ULTIMATUM ON ZIMBABWE’S PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE PASSES

 

Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party has summoned its members of parliament to discuss the future of its leader, President ROBERT MUGABE, after a deadline for his resignation came and went on Monday.

 

 

Crisis began two weeks ago when the 93-year-old leader sacked his deputy EMMERSON MNANGAGWA, angering army commanders who saw it as an attempt to position his wife GRACE as next president.

 

 

Protests backed by the influential war veterans – who fought in the conflict that led to independence from Britain in 1980 – have since erupted.

 

 

Leader of influential war veterans, CHRIS MUTSVANGWA, on Monday called for more demonstrations against the president.

 

 

The embattled leader surprised Zimbabweans on Sunday, declaring on TV that he planned to remain as president.
