Robert Mugabe resigned as president of Zimbabwe on Tuesday, Parliament speaker Jacob Mudenda told lawmakers, ending a 37-year rule defined by brutality and economic collapse.
“I Robert Gabriel Mugabe in terms of section 96 of the constitution of Zimbabwe hereby formally tender my resignation… with immediate effect,” said speaker Mudenda, reading the letter.
But here a tyrant has been removed. The system is there. And the system can be removed by elections.
This is a historic day for Zimbabeans. Many never thought tis day would come. But it is here. And as Zimbabweans we thank God.
One step towards freedom.
