Zimbabwe’s parliament has opened for a historic session to start impeachment proceedings against President Robert Mugabe.
“This motion is unprecedented in the history of post-independence Zimbabwe,” Parliament speaker Jacob Mubenda said, AFP news agency reports.
MPs allied with Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace are also in parliament for the start of impeachment proceedings, a group which monitors parliamentary activities has tweeted:
Even those MPs who like Sandi Moyo and Sarah Mahoka got fired from Zanu PF on Sunday are here today. How they will vote remains a mystery #impeachmugabe pic.twitter.com/QmOQBsoWOT
