It’s Official: Mugabe Finally Resigns After 37 Years In Power.

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has finally resigned after being in power for 37 years, Parliament speaker Jacob Mudenda has said.

Reuters reports that a letter from Mugabe said the decision was voluntary.

The surprise announcement of Mugabe’s resignation came as lawmakers were debating on an impeachment motion against Mugabe in a joint sitting of parliament.

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