Today, 21.11. 2017 Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has submitted his resignation after nearly four decades as the country’s leader.
Mugabe defied demands to step down for almost a week after a military takeover and expulsion from his own ruling ZANU-PF party but stepped down on Tuesday, hours after parliament started an impreachent process. jawsbroke out in the parliament after speaker Jacob Mudenda read out Mugabe’s resignation letter.
“I Robert Gabriel Mugabe in terms of section 96 of the constitution of Zimbabwe hereby formally tender my resignation … with immediate effect,” said Mudenda, reading the letter.
Therefore it is clear that the future still holds on the social responsabily of its citizens. It looks like a glimpse of hope for democratic agendas and countries that had been under authoritarian rulers such as Mugabe for decades.
As global repercussion emerges, surely third world countries like; Venezuela has a challenge to overcome dictatorship as well, but at what cost? Does it worth waiting another 10 more years? Or may the military arise now that Ledezma is in Madrid, Spain and escaped as there are internal leaks that suggests he got help for this group and a “coup de etat” is the assistance citizens in Venezuela need to be freed of unstable rulers.
