Zimbabwe's Mugabe faces impeachment after military takeover

In Zimbabwe Mugabe faces impeachment by Parliament

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe should acknowledge the nation's "insatiable desire" for a leadership change and resign immediately, the recently fired vice-president and likely successor to the 93-year-old leader said Tuesday.

Grace Mugabe has not been seen since the takeover of the military, which has not overtly called for President Mugabe's resignation.

Zimbabwe's information minister said on Tuesday he did not know if ministers would attend the cabinet meeting.

"The nation will be advised of the result of talks between the two", he said.

Mugabe on Tuesday faces another test of his rule, as Zimbabwe's parliament reconvenes after a two-week break with Zanu-PF expected to table a motion of impeachment.

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai says utterances by Zanu PF officials on Sunday at party's central committee meeting has caused confusion which will undermine an otherwise good opportunity that would have steered the country towards a "fresh start".

David Coltart, the MDC's secretary for legal affairs, said he supported the move in principle. "I have long felt he should have been impeached for what he has done of the last decades and for how he has violated the constitution", he said.

Separately, state television said Mugabe would meet military commanders on Sunday, quoting the Catholic priest who has been mediating in negotiations with the president.

Despite his fragile health, Mugabe had previously said he would stand in elections next year that could have kept him in power until he was almost 100 years old.

The crowds in Harare have so far given a quasi-democratic veneer to the army's intervention, backing its assertion that it is merely effecting a constitutional transfer of power, which would help it avoid the diplomatic backlash and opprobrium that normally follow a coup.

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of Harare, singing, dancing and hugging soldiers in an outpouring of elation at Mugabe's overthrow.

On Monday afternoon following a meeting of its members of Parliament, ZANU-PF told its chief whip Lovemore Matuke to initiate impeachment proceedings.

The former vice president was a key lieutenant to Mugabe for decades and stands accused of participating in repression against Zimbabweans who challenged the leader.

After Mnangagwa fled overseas, the army took over the country and placed Mugabe under house arrest - provoking amazement and delight among many Zimbabweans as his autocratic 37-year reign appeared close to an end.
