  • Zimbabwe's Moyo says on Twitter he is out of the country

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, as impeachment proceedings began against the world's oldest head of state.

Meanwhile, the leader of Zimbabwe's war veterans, Chris Mutsvangwa, said he would initiate court action to legalise the military action against Mugabe after the army seized power on Wednesday.

Mugabe would of course never apologise for wrecking his country‚ so no Zimbabwean could seriously have had that expectation. Calls for his resignation were prevalent a decade ago when economic mismanagement devastated the country's economy, resulting in currency hyperinflation which has been estimated [CATO study, PDF] to have reached a monthly inflationary rate over 79 billion percent at its worse in 2008. They said the Constitution does not allow Zanu-PF party to recall the President, and therefore the only way now is for Parliament to impeach him, adding that the procedure for impeachment was stipulated in section 97 of the Constitution in a three-stage process.

In his 37 years as president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe has learned how to play hardball.

Zimbabwe's ousted deputy president Emmerson Mnangagwa on Tuesday asked President Robert Mugabe to respect public opinion and step down and said he would only return home when his security was assured.

The moves against Mugabe are the climax of a power struggle in the ruling party between a military-aligned faction that's coalesced around Mnangagwa, 75, and another known as the Generation-40, which wants the president's wife, Grace Mugabe, 52, to succeed him.

Leader of the opposition People's Democratic Party Tendai Biti told Newsday Mr. Mugabe's impeachment could be complete in a week. On Saturday, thousands of Zimbabweans had taken to the streets calling for him to go.

"It might take days and weeks, but Mugabe is on his way out", said Charles Muramba, a 46-year-old bus driver in Harare.

"If they get him on that, then they are exposing him to that whole issue about, you know, crimes against humanity and so forth", he said. "We are finally getting rid of the old man", said Tanashe, a Harare resident who declined to provide a second name.

In Ivory Coast, President Alassane Ouattara says it is time for Mugabe "to hand over his seat to a new generation". Instead Mugabe dashed their hopes with a freakish and rambling televised address on Sunday night in which he made no mention of his own fate.

If the generals do not force Mr Mugabe's resignation and parliament, for some reason, fails to impeach him, the country could move further into uncharted territory.

On Sunday ZANU-PF dismissed Mugabe as its leader and demanded he resign as head of state, naming Mnangagwa as the new party chief. "And (I) do believe that these were raised in the spirit of honesty and out of deep and patriotic concern for the stability for our nation and for the welfare of our people".
