We are getting reports in that the governing Zanu-PF party will proceed to discuss the impeachment of President Robert Mugabe after his resignation deadline lapsed.
The party’s chief whip Lovemore Matuke told Reuters news agency the party’s MPs had planned to meet today.
Our previous post points out that legal advisers to Zimbabwe’s parliament say the impeachment could take several days to complete.
Reuters has a faster estimate – saying that, because of the overwhelming support for the removal of Mr Mugabe, it could take a day.
It quotes John Makamure from the Southern African Parliamentary Support Trust saying the move could take 24 hours:
“They can fast-track it. It can be done in a matter of a day.”
