Earlier today Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party gave President Robert Mugabe until 10:00 GMT tomorrow to resign as president, or face impeachment.
Impeaching the president would require a two-thirds majority in both houses of Zimbabwe’s parliament, which is due to resume on Tuesday.
Zanu-PF has an overwhelming majority in both houses, but it may be that after meeting the top military commanders today, they have decided to give the 93-year-old leader a more dignified exit.
However, his failure to resign is likely to come as shock to many Zimbabweans who witnessed an historic anti-Mugabe march in the capital, Harare, on Saturday.
