Zimbabwe’s president fails to heed to resignation calls

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said on Sunday rejected calls by the ruling Zanu-PF to resign from his position in his official address to the country.

Two senior sources of the government told Reuters that Mr Mugabe had earlier pledged to resign after the ZANU-PF sacked him as its leader.

Following the military coup ZANU-PF had given Mr Mugabe 24 hours to resign.

In a speech from his official residence, Mr Mugabe failed to announce his resignation, despite acknowledging criticism from the ZANU-PF, military and public.

Impeachments efforts against Mr Mugabe are expected to proceed this week.
