- ZANU-PF party removes Robert Mugabe as party leader
- The president refuses to resign despite the political turmoil in Zimbabwe
President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has reportedly drafted a resignation letter where he agreed to terms for his exit.
CNN, citing a source familiar with the negotiation, stated that Mugabe drafted a letter which he might likely submit as pressure mounts on him to step down.
But uncertainty still clouds Mugabe's future as the president failed to honour a deadline given to him by his party to resign.
The ZANU-PF party which he co-founded removed him as party leader on Sunday, November 19, and told him to resign in 24 hours or face impeachment in parliament.
