Zimbabwe's ruling party meeting to expel Robert Mugabe
21 November, 2017, 01:05
Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe since independence from British rule in 1980.
Robert Mugabe has rubbed the noses of his opponents in his decision not to resign, by ordering weekly cabinet meetings every Tuesday at State House, his official residence.
The pendulum swung further against the president on Sunday, when ZANU-PF dismissed him as its leader and demanded he resign as head of state, naming Mnangagwa as the new party chief. His wife, Grace, was also expelled from the party.
Zanu-PF also said it wanted to change the constitution to reduce the power of the president, a possible sign of its desire to move towards a more pluralistic and inclusive political system. "Zimbabweans have tolerated his nonsense for too long, and sooner or later, they may just decide to say we are removing you", added Mr Gutto.
Zimbabwe's constitution provides four grounds for impeaching a president or vice president: serious misconduct; failure to obey, uphold or defend the constitution; willful violation of the constitution; or inability to perform the functions of the office because of physical or mental incapacity.
Mugabe fires Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to resolve a succession dispute.
But impeaching Mugabe, who is the only leader most Zimbabweans have ever known, would require a two thirds-majority in both houses of Zimbabwe's parliament which is due to resume on Tuesday.
"The wish of the military is that he should be allowed to go with dignity", said Simbi Mubako, a professor and former close associate of Mr Mugabe.
The 93-year-old leader defied expectations last night that he would resign in a televised "exit speech".
