Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has resigned, the speaker of the country’s Parliament said, bringing an end to his 37 years of rule.
The announcement came as Parliament began proceedings to impeach him, six days after the military seized control in the capital, Harare.
Mugabe’s resignation marks the an end of an era in Zimbabwe having ruled the country with an iron fist for almost four decades and is the only leader the nation has known since it achieved independence from Britain in 1980.
