Mugabe Agrees To Resign, Secures Immunity For His Family

Zimbabwe’s long-time president Robert Mugabe has agreed to the terms of his resignation and a letter has been drafted, an official source with direct knowledge of negotiations told CNN.


The source said that the generals had given into many of Mugabe’s demands including full immunity for himself and his wife Grace, and that he would keep his private properties.

According to the source, the aim of Sunday’s televised address in which Mugabe appeared to resist calls to step aside was to ensure the veteran leader openly declared the military’s actions to be constitutional.

For the resignation to formally take place, however, a letter must first be sent to the speaker of Parliament, added the source.

Mugabe had stunned the nation on Sunday when he refused to say in a live televised address if he was stepping down.

His party had given him 24 hours to resign or be impeached after military seized power and kept him under house arrest.

On Saturday, thousands of Zimbabweans had taken to the streets calling for him to go.

But in a bizarre and rambling speech, Mugabe instead insisted he was going nowhere, and that he would see his political party Zanu-PF through its congress in a few weeks.

Zimbabweans who’d been glued to state television to watch the speech live came out into the streets afterward, some in shock.

Harare resident Tina Madzimure called the speech “an embarrassment really. He made a fool out of the generals.”

“This man will go to his grave with Zimbabwe in his hands,” she told CNN.
Mugabe’s Downfall: Following a military takeover in Zimbabwe and subsequently, President Robert Mugabe’s house arrest, a video showing Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua predicting “impending military intervention in the government of a Southern African country” has been circulating like wildfire on social media in Zimbabwe. In the video, senior pastor of the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) could be heard speaking about military plans to “get rid of a President in a region of Southern Africa”. T.B Joshua also told the congregants in Lagos, Nigeria, that the name of the country was shown to him but that he was not going to mention it to avoid “undue pandemonium” in the country.

They are still having that plan to kidnap either a President or Vice-President of that nation or the First Lady of that nation,” the Nigerian pastor said. Zimbabweans on social media have continued to share the clips thousands of times on Facebook and Whatsapp. Meanwhile, before events unfolded on Tuesday with the military taking power, Zimbabwe’s prominent privately-owned newspaper ‘NewsDay’ featured T.B Joshua’s prophecy on the front page of their Monday 13th November 2017 edition. ‘NewsDay’ also reported that the Nigerian prophet had reiterated the prediction last week.

Joshua gave a prophecy about exactly what has happened in Zimbabwe today. “He said that the VP in a southern African country would be removed and then there would be a coup and the President and First Lady of that country would be toppled and kidnapped.” Though this video was recorded in 2014, it has not stopped people from linking it to the current events in Zimbabwe.
