Robert Mugabe resigns as President of Zimbabwe

Robert Mugabe resigns as President of Zimbabwe
Robert Mugabe has resigned as Zimbabwe's president, shortly after parliament began an impeachment process to end his nearly four decades of rule.

The 93-year old clung on for a week after an army takeover and expulsion from his own ruling ZANU-PF party, which also told him to leave power.

Wild celebrations broke out at a joint sitting of parliament when Speaker Jacob Mudenda announced Mr Mugabe's resignation and suspended the impeachment procedure.

Mr Mugabe made the resignation in a letter submitted to parliament.

In the letter, Mr Mugabe said that his decision to resign was made voluntary on his part. He also said that he has resigned to allow the smooth transfer of power.
