under these my age have triggered in some quarters such as developments. such developments quite understandable however we cannot be guided by bitterness. range for. both of which mood. not meek will not make us any better but you may not have. any. game by beards his speech followed a meeting between will be a minute she chiefs but while that was taking place the president was sacked as leader of the ruling party p.f. by its central committee is being given until midday on monday to resign president all face impeachment while they were jubilant scenes of their zanu p.f.

party meeting in harare as the sacking was announced the ninety three year old president is being replaced by amisom. a man he recently cites as vice president mugabe has been on the house arrest since the elements of control when say how much asa has more from. surprise and disbelief off to saturday's march with hundreds of thousands of people on the streets calling for president mugabe to go he has said he is not residing any plans to be at the party conference or congress in december people are now asking what next they know the sanity of central committee have given the president up to day on monday to resign if he doesn't they're going to go to parliament and impeach him so there is a standoff at the moment also people watching the reaction of the army we know that they're not happy with it we know that they also wanted to go were they continue to be patient lots of uncertainty in the air the main thing now is that has refused to
1:05 am
step down and people are wondering what's going to happen later on in the next coming hours the next coming days some zimbabweans you tuned in to watch my speech lawyer felt let down by his refusal to resign. the general did walk away peacefully and with his dignity but he refused to do that he's tried to do so stop and we're just waiting. to hear something definitive like i'm i'm stepping down i'm resigning or something. and he didn't say anything unless there's a country with bed to square one. for my view i think. i have to move you used to go to the impeachment route yeah i think is the only solution because currently our defense forces right now they cannot. and for more we're joined again by professor stephen chan from the school of
1:06 am
oriental and african studies at the university of london they also wrote a book life of power and violence thanks very much for staying around this is obviously clear intention by the president to stay until congress in december but do you think he can survive the week i'd be most surprised if he survives that we can't address the congress he's no longer the president of the party he was sacked this morning this is just defiance this is simply the old man going down with all of his guns firing. shots however because they can't have any real effect on the war veterans of said they want to mobilize people to get back on the streets again on wednesday is a potential that could flare up the great march the other day was very very peaceful if they have to do it again i think that there is every single possibility of major rioting in the streets of iraq. we know we should probably tend to the man
1:07 am
who is tipped to take over he's always already been named the leader of the of the designer pair of party i miss him and what do we know about him and how much of a challenge is he going to have on these plates if indeed he doesn't take over he's a gentleman who's going to have to reinvent himself he does not have the world's kindest pastor if i can put it this diplomatically is possible but i think he will try to reinvent himself so he can reconnect the country globally the task is very very much to forge some kind of economic base so the country can come out of great inflation come out of non-productivity come out of a past where everything was mired for decades back and try to take the country into a future of stability it will take a long time before we can take it into actual prosperity he's facing huge problems with the economy at the moment and i you have quite a diet prediction for even the immediate situation with the economy i think three
1:08 am
hundred percent inflation by christmas and i don't think you can reverse the overnight just by a new president this is going to take months of very very difficult work to even lay the foundations for reinvigoration of the economy and in fact there's no foundation except that foreign countries such as china for instance would pump some liquidity into the economy there is no productive base that makes commercial sense of this moment in time and we are looking now probably impeachment on monday as a. piece of or talked about the war veterans very much pushing that how does that physically happen where parliament will convene probably on tuesday and he's been given to tomorrow or monday to resign and then your face impeachment on tuesday parliament will convene and passive vote basically impeaching the president and at that point in time he will no longer be legally the president of zimbabwe thank you very much stephen jones. by joining us i'll just.
