Breaking News: Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe resigns

Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe resigns after being in power for 37 year

Mugabe has resigned after nearly four decades as the country’s leader, according to the parliament speaker.

A letter from Mr Mugabe said the decision was voluntary, Reuters news agency reports.
The surprise announcement came as lawmakers debated an impeachment motion against Mr Mugabe in a joint sitting of parliament.

Mr Mugabe had previously refused to resign despite last week’s military takeover, and days of protests.

He has been in power since independence in 1980.
