9:04 pm
cairo if he does indeed announce that he is resigning as president. people will come around to the streets we saw yesterday with those so much hope and anticipation and people were like it's this is now the time let's remove president mubarak so you get that you get the you see the euphoria you see the singing and dancing you see all the moments are from different political parties coming together united saying that they've removed prism of i remember for the bombings this was the case of mom to so many years of having him as president and he called me literally coming to us so everyone was suffering so people are united behind economies that will come out in the streets will cheer to celebrate some probably won't even sleep tonight but again all eyes on state t.v. is the president going to resign there will be a historic moment if he does go historic exciting for zimbabwe. but also a feeling i guess of uncertainty and anxiety of what happens next i mean he is the
9:05 pm
only leader that many many zimbabweans have ever known thirty seven years in power . exactly and that is a long long time what happens next they know if he does decide it was them and then go all be made president what does it mean for the country for the future when it is a businessman he is seen to be liked by the international media zimbabweans hope that investors will come back to the country will pour money into the country will work as the body in government and the country can recover that is what people are the to immediately know course with the plans to go to elections next year will be other concerns you know like registration whether they'll be violence leading up to the elections or the immediate concern now is our economy will recover if president . is like. monitoring events there live in the zimbabwean capital harare
9:06 pm
going to stay with us because we are still monitoring state television to see whether or not god doesn't make a historic announcement i can tell you just looking at my monitors at the moment that there has. been has started on zimbabwean state television it didn't start right on the dot of the top of the news bulletin being read at the moment we will keep an eye on events there for you in the meantime as we were saying robert mugabe the only leader but most in barbarians have ever known a hero of that independence struggle he took power back in one thousand nine hundred eighty and maintained a firm grip on it looks back at his often to mold thirty seven year old. he has been perhaps the most infamous ruler in africa who destroyed a promising country through his determination to cling on to power adored by some but despised by others in zimbabwe although widely admired across africa as a hero who stood up to the west. one thousand nine hundred five rhodesia and even
9:07 pm
smith's white settlers declare independence from britain an event that defined robert mugabe's life. the black majority resisted racist rule in the cities and out in the countryside where a vicious bush war raged for years robert mugabe a teacher turned activist emerged from prison as an articulate leader of the independent struggle we started the war in order to give our country then we haven't got a country. they did get their country at lancaster house in london in one nine hundred seventy nine and when zimbabwe celebrated independence the overwhelming winner of elections was in power and rival liberation fighters what do to keep it to be learned in the early one nine hundred eighty s. the opposition crushed thousands killed in ethnic massacres atrocities that were barely noticed abroad.
9:08 pm
but there was also much to admire robert mugabe brought education and health to millions of the vile vians. although later the economy declined and the invasion of white farms in two thousand were turning point this time the world did notice. this was going to happen of course going to turn into a bloodbath turn into another congo maybe this is it. we're going to get out of it was a chaotic destructive process darby said he was correcting an old injustice. please it's not the business of britain you see to tell us they do not wear those who are given members of. my party relevant to britain. by now the opposition was growing despite torture murder and manipulation many zimbabweans seemed ready to throw mccarthy out. they had
9:09 pm
a new hero morgan chang he said robert mugabe's early achievements will always be overshadowed by the years of oppression. as the great liberator. has betrayed the liberal. i think the letter. was i think. the legacy built. at one stage the two rivals ended up in government together although mccarthy made sure he kept the real power and chang later returned to a position. by now his wife grace forty one years his junior had emerged as a political player and big gobby well into his ninety's seem determined to go on and on he liberated zimbabweans but he also left his room as legacy sony vaio
9:10 pm
al-jazeera. and with me now the studio is this in barbarian journalist georgina goldman thanks so much for coming into this studio all the fines are but he is going to make some sort of announcement in the coming hours do you think he is going to go quietly and say ok i do resign before he's in i think he's got every reason to do that i mean i imagine there would be a deal cut where you can keep some of the money or indeed perhaps all of the money i think if he goes very quietly indeed and really allows it unfold in the way that the general would like it to unfold that he may even be allowed to stay in zimbabwe i imagine he would like to do that his wife i think would be extremely unwelcome in the country but one hopes that he is allowed to do it with a modicum of dignity doubtless of an evil man but he has in his in his time been a great liberator and i think if he could be allowed to step down and move away and live out his days peacefully that would be good but it would also give a reason for saddam and the african union just to back off there are very anxious
9:11 pm
not to see any violence i think in terms of prosecutions for either him his wife or indeed any of the g forty group or anybody that's been chased out of power that's extremely unlikely because of course they all know literally where the bodies are buried whole horrible thought really i mean you talk about him going with dignity and it is important to remember that for the older generation especially he is still seen as something of a hero to some people for a century leading a revolution if you like for taking charge back in one nine hundred eighty one is it for the unity of the country do you think for him to be given that dignified exit i think that it is important i think that the war veterans a very powerful body of people and although they have utterly rejected him now he was their leader for a long time and i think that that i don't know i mean i feel a bit silly talking about basic human kindness but that's i think what we're looking at and i think that some bobbins as
9:12 pm
a people are never going to kind of right. try and tear him limb from limb i think people do respect him and we do a debt of gratitude we've waited thirty seven years do you wish to get on with it now i know we're monitoring as i was said earlier oregon state television showing a regular news bulletin in fact they're showing the pictures that we were showing earlier of the. party meeting in harare a little bit earlier and the sentiment his deposed vice president is now the man who's going to be in interim charge of zanu p.f. is he going to be though the next president well we don't know i mean this so much that we don't know about this i mean what we do know is that there's a very small window yesterday people were absolutely euphoric on the streets of zimbabwe not just harare but around the country and indeed the diaspora celebrating both here in london australia america a very great feeling everywhere what we weren't saying was how are you going to reform the economy what you doing about electoral law how are the security forces
9:13 pm
going to be reformed all of these things need to be addressed and i think that was to want to go and come under intense pressure from western powers and indeed the east china of course a major player in this to make sure that the economic policy changes and is one that will deal with inward investment is he going to be the man that's going to be able to do that critics will look at him and say well actually he was he was regarded as ally for years and years and years he was his vice president for the last couple of years can this man actually turn things around in zimbabwe and can he unite zimbabweans what they have to do to do that i mean there's no doubt of course he's a seat in blood as i mean when you look at that room full of people dancing at zanu p.f. headquarters after mccarthy was told to go there's very few people in there who haven't benefited off the back of all of the masses that show me one who isn't basically a done something criminal in that room and i think that whoever is in charge has this opportunity now to say ok that all happened but now we can. go forward and
9:14 pm
we can go forward in this way but that way needs to be very very carefully worked out particularly economic policy but electoral law too and i think god has the authority to do that another person who may be in the running for this is sydney secor my he was the defense minister and i think the reason that he's possible is that he is not connected to this not a coup in any way i mean obviously he is but he is not sort of get in the crosshairs of public attention about it so he's another person who might unite people. i think going forward. obviously wants to deal with the west i would say it's a way of stabilizing the economy i cannot tell you how bad it's got for zimbabweans people just want to be able to eat they want to be able to send their children to school that's what's important to us it doesn't really matter who's in charge as
9:15 pm
long as they can deliver that and as long as we can we can sort out the finances in zimbabwe get ourselves back on an even keel obviously the goal is free and fair elections i don't think that that's possible in the in the timeframes of the constitution says it has to be every five years that will come up in august two thousand and eighteen the opposition and it is in utter disarray zanu p.f. now we're not going to be ready that requires a constitutional change. but it's tinkering and i think that that that will happen and that there may be a transitional body that will be in place for some people are saying eighteen months some people saying three years i mean we don't have a timeframe for this and until he actually comes out and tells us what he's doing we then can't move on to the next step but i think all of this is incremental it's little little steps and every day we know a little bit more yesterday was completely fantastic and the fact that somebody wins was celebrating so much but i fear that unless this is handled properly
9:16 pm
we may have all been taken for some kind of a ride or i try to go when i know you're going to stay with us and we're going to continue monitoring zimbabwean state television to see when the government has announcement whatever it might be thank you in a moment thank you. there's much more to come here on the al-jazeera news including tens of thousands take to the streets in tokyo it's just latest protest calling for president for nothing day to go. where refugees are continuing to iraq but they are increasingly help from small charity start ups. and some of the world's best gear up for the winter olympics thank you for that in sports but. first the arab league is holding an extraordinary meeting in cairo to discuss
9:17 pm
alleged violations committed by iran in the region saudi arabia requested the special summit and it heightened tensions between riyadh on terror all over lebanon the saudi foreign minister opened the session by condemning iranian activity in the middle east. and the month almost kind of the swift response reflects the gravity of the situation our countries are facing and the region is stability and security is fear same as a result of the ballistic missiles violations of iran and the blunt interference in the domestic affairs of our countries with the m. to destabilize and feel sectarian reps among the people and to drive a wedge between ourselves and our people let's get more on the sun talk to al jazeera senior political analyst small of bashar a joining us from our headquarters in doha on what else is being said at the summit . well we just heard the final press conference by the head of the arab league mr blair it as well as the foreign minister of your
9:18 pm
booty that heads this session of the arab league unfortunately we couldn't get the text yet of the final communique which apparently includes fifteen decisions by the foreign ministers it seems to have just come out and we don't have the time actually to look at it we don't have a to read it and so on so forth however from that press conference it transpires that. the arab foreign ministers have condemned iran violations and interference in affairs they did refer to hezbollah of lebanon as a terrorist organization there will be. conducting certain. talks in new york through the arab league get delegations however in the words of the secretary general of the arab league there will not yet go to the security council with their condemnation against iran trying to get something out of the
9:19 pm
united nations against iran so all in all when the secretary general of the arab league was asked what does this really mean in actionable terms he said this is going to be a long process this is not something that will lead to some sort of a military confrontation with iran it's simply diplomacy and that they hope that this will garner more support internationally going forward what is saudi arabia they really hope to achieve with this summit if you're saying there's been a lot of condemnation but no real actions as it were agreed upon. you know for history if you look back at the last few weeks months even couple of years you'll see that also with the attempts at consolidating its power within the region and consolidating the solomons power within the kingdom have not really gone very
9:20 pm
well the war in yemen after two and a half years is disastrous for yemenis and for saudis. the crisis in the gulf is threatening to split the gulf and certainly the last two weeks we've seen the disaster of saudi arabia attempting to influence the democratic process in lebanon so now saudi arabia is trying to get some kind of a. position which apparently it succeeded in the arab league in order to consolidate its own strategy and position in the region it hopes by having the egyptians the iraqis in the bihari knees along with saudi arabia garner more or wider arab support that it will be able to better confront iran in the months and years ahead all right mom bashar asad the political analyst joining us live there from thank you. antigovernment
9:21 pm
protests a flare up again in togo for months demonstrators have been demanding constitutional reform and an end to the ruling family's fifty year grip on power but the president is refusing to back down as marianne home reports. the government put the figure at twenty thousand the opposition says there were ten times that number the discrepancy over how many were out on the streets of togo's camp is a long way on saturday gives some insight into just how far apart the opposition and the government and how little interest they have been each other's views protesters want a president for missing baby out and a two term limit on who will take his place but the president is resisting sidestepping proposals that would see him go. fifty years is too much for one family we're sick of this you'll see we're sick of

country on friday degas challenged the reelection of president hu to kenya in august he then boycotted a rerun of the election saying it still wouldn't be a fair race where kenya supreme court is expected to decide on monday if kenyatta will be sworn in for his second term or if new elections will be held for me to milan has more from my robey. the now familiar scene for kenyans as the country's political fate is decided in court the supreme court has received two petitions that want to invalidate the october twenty sixth presidential run a former member of parliament says fresh nominations for the presidential candidate should have been held before the rerun while human rights activists say the election should have been called off once the only other main contender opposition leader raila odinga withdrew from the race but the electoral commission says the election was legal and can yet as victories should be upheld president elect to
9:33 pm
reckon yatta who won the rerun with ninety eight percent of the vote insists the petitions are a waste of time legal expert julius came boyce's kenya's facing a historical process with potentially the results of a second election being thrown out this is a consolidated petition one is challenging the money in which. i can deliver on his mandate so that is a legal issue the other one me. going on i mean it's based on the twenty thirty in decision of the supreme court saying once the not a presidential candidate withdrew they should have been fresh and initial so one is more technical the other one deals with the substance. the sniggler challenge to the election result is the second in just months two months ago those courts a nod to the presidential election it said there were irregularities in how the electoral commission counted the final results and a new election should be held with just the two main contenders taking part that
9:34 pm
time around the core challenge came from the main opposition the national super alliance this time though political parties have stayed away and kenyans appear to have little interest in what's happening in court this certainly is a level of fatigue as many kenyans look forward to the end of months of election campaigning voting and legal battles that are unfortunate but some say a court ruling either way won't immediately solve the political crisis brought on by political economic and ethnic divisions this winner takes it all. presidential system. has failed us and i think it's failing many other african countries as well . perhaps in. the. us. nations like. we need a hybrid parliamentary system. but. but don't have the citizens.
9:35 pm
with everything all citizens should feel included government and for a second time kenyans wait patiently to learn if they should prepare for new elections or a presidential swearing in within the week for me to al-jazeera nairobi. a man tipped to become chile's new president has cast his ballot in the country's elections billionaire businessman and former president sebastian pinera voted in santiago there are eight candidates in the running but he is being seen as the favorite to win while latin american as you see in human joins us live now from santiago and how has voting been going you say. hello felicity well i'm in a polling station here in an upper middle class neighborhood of santiago where the voting has been quite brisk despite the forecast that is that there would be a very very high abstention rate at least in this part of the city that has not
9:36 pm
been the case but it's a very strange situation here in chile for the city this is a country that has the most stable economic and political situation in all of latin america the lowest crime rate in latin america and yet people are discontented discontented with the center left government joining me to discuss with the reasons for this is a quantum is to kirsten's them brooke from the university of diego border palace question if you could tell me why on earth aren't chileans voting for more of the same why are they going back apparently according to the polls at. you can trust them to the former presidents of us jumping into who has been questioned on on counts of corruption and also who did not have a rather luck luster government the first time around yes both of those things are true there is indeed reason to distrust him and he didn't have a brilliant government however this recent government the outgoing government under took a lot of structural reforms and that always creates uncertainty and on settles the
9:37 pm
electorate so what people are voting for now is essentially stability no more change somebody who will. continue with the status quo in a way who will not undertake the reforms who will not unsettle the country further and above all so they are voting for the candidate who they think will we activate the economy because unfortunately over the last four years economic growth has been relatively slow mostly due to external factors but some also say that some of the economic growth the slowdown in growth is due to the fact that there was uncertainty generated by the reforms so now people are voting for the status quo and an economic reactivation but it's rather odd that they couldn't find another person why bring back president peña for a second time on the phone on the one hand and also is chile really moving more to the right or is it just moving more to the center now i don't think it's moving more to the right trail it's more of the right wing parties and moving more to the
9:38 pm
center and when you look at being it has lost government actually been on many occasions he was called the fifth government of the center left coalition that went on before him so really it's a continuation of policies it will have a slightly more rightwing bent but really people are voting for a continuation of the policies that that that has been the to produce the well being the chipping has the full experience in the last twenty five twenty seven years now there is one unknown quantity in this election that is a new coalition the the broad front which is more to the left. which. do you think this coalition could have perhaps not by winning the presidency but at least a larger majority in the in the congress well they should certainly get enough votes in order to establish themselves as a political presence within the center next week. if enough young people turn out today to vote and their vote could surprise on the upside and that should give them
9:39 pm
a relatively important position from which to negotiate future participation in politics in china also of course depends on whether they managed to get any deputies or whether they managed to get to a corps which is the regional representatives etc so it very much depends on how they they turn out today but we'll see very shortly exactly what will happen thank you very much kirsten well there you have it to the polls will close in a little more than two hours from now the results should come out very very quickly most polls show the do with that no one can that it will get the fifty percent plus one needed to win in a first round so it's almost certain that chile will go back to the polls again next month back to you for the city all right more from u.d.c. or of course in the coming hours there in santiago thank you palestinian officials say they will freeze all communications with the u.s. if the trumpet ministration does close the office of the palestinian liberation organization in washington on friday the u.s. state department announced it would shut the p.l.o.
9:40 pm
sophos in ninety days if it did not engage in direct meaningful negotiations with this well it also said the p.l.o. was not pursue cases against israel at the international criminal court now to syria's malcolm webb has more from ramallah in the occupied west bank. israeli settlements in the occupied west bank keep growing and the palestinian liberation organization says the expansions have doubled since president trump came to power they were illegal under international law and it's something the p.l.o. could pursue at the international criminal court in washington the u.s. state department says if that happens it will close the p.l.o. his office and in ramallah palestinian officials were shocked and disappointed. we are punished for threatening to go to the court and mr netanyahu is not punished for committing the crimes for which we are going to court which is the settlements on the. land of the west bank and in jerusalem occupied them it is sixty seven so
9:41 pm
what do you make out of this pressure to do what several palestinian officials told us the closure of the pillows office would end us legitimacy as a broker for peace since he was elected president trump has said he'll deliver a peace deal the palestinian officials say they haven't been given any details analysts say previous u.s. administrations didn't approve of the expansion of the illegal settlements this american station this. violations of the but rights especially settlement expansion they seem to be more sensitive. to try to get help of the national low in recent months israeli media have reported an israeli government plan to close the p.l.o. his washington office but prime minister benjamin netanyahu hasn't said much in a statement he said he appreciated the american decision palestinian president
9:42 pm
