What people on Twitter are saying about Mugabe’s resignation

Citizen Reporter

Mugabe has resigned during a parliamentary seating which was tabled to remove him as president of Zimbabwe.

A video grab made on November 19, 2017 from footage of the broadcast of Zimbabwe Broadcasting corporation (ZBC) shows Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe delivering a speech in Harare, following a meeting with army chiefs who have seized power in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, in a much-expected TV address, stressed he was still in power after his authoritarian 37-year reign was rocked by a military takeover. Many Zimbabweans expected Mugabe to resign after the army seized power last week. But Mugabe delivered his speech alongside the uniformed generals who were behind the military intervention. In his address, Mugabe made no reference to the clamour for him to resign. / AFP PHOTO / ZBC AND AFP PHOTO / STR / XGTY / RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE - MANDATORY CREDIT "AFP PHOTO / ZBC" - NO MARKETING NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS - DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS
