5:05 am
a faithful mugabe lieutenant described as the president's enforcer close to the army and nicknamed the crocodile if you would describe him as a democrat. many are right to wonder but there's a new era to be much different from the past on this night and for now though not many k. . no one knows what's going to happen next it's a new dawn for the country for a people who have only known one leader since the one nine hundred eighty s. . had any. poll read and takes a look now at the life and career of the veterans from bob when later. they will never be. here they will always be.
5:06 am
in control that was two thousand and seven. ten years later when the people let their views be known opiate encouraged by zimbabwe's military robert mugabe ignored them and then surprise them when he didn't announce his resignation as widely predicted t.v. address i thank you and good night after thirty seven years in control mcgarvie found it hard to let go he's made a career by deftly apa new bring potential rivals one of the first to be sidelined was joshua como a fellow liberation fighter and comer was leader of the party with gabi merge them with his zanu p.f. party their alliance was uneasy i don't cum i was relegated to the figurehead role of vice president. at the turn of the century the gobby started seizing farms owned by whites to a peace supporters angry at the slow pace of land reform the economy shrank by
5:07 am
a third unemployment soared about eighty percent. out of this economic turmoil another rival emerged we must accuse him of sounding defeat morgan chander i formed the movement for democratic change it became popular enough to risk defeating mugabe in a presidential election runoff in two thousand and eight. i was beaten up frequently arrested and intimidated dozens of his supporters were killed allegedly by zanu p.f. thugs and the m.d.c. leader withdrew from the election worried about the stability of its neighbor south africa forced both men into a coalition or i became prime minister but mcgarvey retain control of the police army and secret service and with that the real power of god he won the election four years ago by a landslide supporters said voter registration lists were manipulated critics said mccarthy was just as ruthless at dealing with rivals in his own party war veteran
5:08 am
and vice president joyce mature and was fired in two thousand and fourteen accused of corruption and plotting to assassinate the gobby this time a gabby's wife grace was seen as instrumental in engineering mature is down for it was the clearest signal yet the mcgarvie was now not only protecting his own position but also laying the path for his wife to succeed him the sacking of emerson made that obvious the vice president nicknamed the crocodile had been in pole position to succeed mugabe firing him cleared the way for his wife. but this time the ninety three year old president had gone too far when a god is close to the military leadership and they stepped in after thirty seven years robert mugabe's days of exercising unchallenged power well over. well reaction to mugabe's resignation has been coming in from around the world while he was a towering figure on the african continent as an influence was also felt globally
5:09 am
tanya page reports from johannesburg. as the news that robert mugabe had resigned hit the streets of johannesburg there were celebrations relief that one of africa's strongman had gone we want to. listen to this it now it's now i do not dispute this believe that unless we're willing to do it. you can make it if you think. these are a fraction of the hundreds of thousands perhaps millions of zimbabweans who lift their homeland in a desperate search for work and some who fled political persecution a sense that a profound change has taken place was echoed at the united nations the secretary general and his predecessors have made clear. that we expect all leaders to listen to their people and from britain's foreign secretary this is
5:10 am
a moment of hope for them bob when the people of zimbabwe the state department was also looking to the future we look forward to and hope for free and fair elections he was a disport to some but remains an influential figure in african politics many zimbabweans believe countries like neighboring south africa helped to keep him in power by approving elections some thought a questionable since about was military intervened south african president jacob zuma has encouraged a negotiated settlement but it was thembi as president who took the lead reacting to magog his resignation saying it's time for the army to return to their barracks so zimbabweans can focus on cohesion and unity a call echoed by the main opposition in south africa the democratic alliance another opposition party the economic freedom fighters said zimbabwe's should advantage and promote mugabe's land reform program that stripped white commercial
5:11 am
farmers of property placing it in the hands of black people and stated the use of robert mugabe's legacy in this region will be mixed many people supported his ideals but not the way they were realized and for a long time many people have thought he should step down they'll be glad it's happened peacefully but not that it took so long tawny a page out as there are johannesburg. political crisis has turned the spotlight on beijing's and for once and had already as well as its future foreign policies and africa china is the boy's largest investor helping to develop a number of key infrastructure projects in the country times with go back to the seventy's when china financed mugabe's government forces to end white minority rule many veterans of the liberation war and clued ing m.s.n. money. who's expected to replace mcgarvie trained in china ahead of zimbabwe's defense forces forces of china days before they're placed under house arrest
5:12 am
feeling reports that china was warned about the military operation china dismissed the reports well let's get more on this now and cross to our correspondent step ross and she's live for us in beijing the two countries have had a very strong relationship for decades now step could be affected by a change in leadership by mugabe be leaving. well it's safe to say that jane is following all the events in a very very closely because as you say they have huge interest in zimbabwe and for many many decades mugabe was majorly supported by china not only economically politically so it is a lot at stake and china has these huge investments in. infrastructure in a lot of business a lot of workers actually from china are also there working currently so everything
5:13 am
. is just political stability they don't want a spontaneous uprising they want stability their interests to be safeguarded and it's fair to say that with the appointment announcement of the new president. that is a safe. stable for us. china to continue and safeguard their interest in the country fights president has been in china many many times the ties are very close he also had military training here so i think it's fair to say that china is not losing a lot of sleep over the transition in zimbabwe right now what response can we expect from the chinese government i know we haven't had an official one yet. hasn't been any official response but a has been a lot of questions about china's role. behind the distance general
5:14 am
chiwenga came to beijing only two weeks ago and it was just a few days actually before mugabe was put under house arrest and a lot of question of course have been raised about what has been sat here in beijing because he met with the top military leadership from china and of course a lot of questions have been raised has this transition been discussed china has given the green light maybe china realized that his time was up and needed to be a new leader and they haven't might have given this green light of course officially the government denies all this and they said it was just a normal visit. but a lot of questions of course being. if the chinese government will respond and what they will say today or step no doubt we will be coming back to you when we do if and when we hear from them step bos'n joining us from beijing thank you. we have
5:15 am
plenty more ahead on the news hour including. the north koreans. try to cross the. syrian president bashar. to russia. then on to other news now lebanon and the return of prime minister saad her d.d. he has arrived back in beirut two weeks after announcing his shock resignation from saudi arabia expected to attend lebanon's independence day celebrations on wednesday president michel aoun has refused to accept nation believing he was acting. on previous.
5:16 am
accusations. that we'll have a day back for the first time really. for the resignation of. the capital. it raises a lot of question. it might get across to wreak really. not true. way or another. so happy to be. back in. definitely. like. there were. over here. but the political currents if you feel their. political crisis.
5:17 am
political instability and. people were worried because. at the center of a worth. a read between saudi arabia and one. nation was in saudi arabia against hezbollah hezbollah being an ally of the law being a member of. government they wanted to curb. backfired because the lebanese came together from across the political divide very humiliated by the fact that the prime minister. was practically a hostage that is the feeling here of course saudi arabia denied this. the country came together but how long will this unity last because the differences are still there and the question remains. just on his resignation or is he going to withdraw it we understand is that the president is going to try to dissuade him
5:18 am
from resigning. to try to find a way. out of a compromise. that will withdraw his resignation let's get more on this now we're joined by rami khouri senior fellow and professor at the american university of beirut and he's joining us live from new york always great to have you with us on al-jazeera society is back we have a very interesting few days ahead i think in lebanon if he goes through with that resignation what happens next politically. well the same thing that has happened in lebanon for the last twenty years or so which is that they'll be to mulch us political consultations deal making threats could joe ling compromises all kinds of political wrangling by many domestic parties as well as interested regional players particularly saudi arabia and iran but others are also
5:19 am
interested too and this will go on for some months probably but as always happens they will ultimately reach an agreement and they will not resolve any of the really key underlying problems this is the lebanese way of addressing these issues because the the problem of hezbollah in particular is is irresolvable that cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of everybody so it's basically papered over and hidden under the table so hezbollah remains very powerful it has its on it plays its role in defending lebanon didn't deterring israeli attacks as it says it's part of the government it's close to iran. and the other people in the arab world can say that it is just staying in lebanon it's not doing stuff outside of lebanon and everybody will paper over that's likely to be the outcome yet again then if that is then the
5:20 am
outcome then what with all of this for the resignation from faulty arabia. well there was a clear apparently a clear saudi desire to shake things up in lebanon to put pressure on hezbollah by putting pressure on sad heavy to shake up the government frighten a lot of people possibly in lebanon create some stress and tension which certainly happened generate a lot of fear in the country that maybe there's going to be a war again which this saudis presumably and i say presumably because nobody really knows this is all speculation but the speculation is based on a lot of years of following how things are done in this region and presumably the saudis thought that somebody could put pressure on hezbollah in lebanon or outside of lebanon to rein in its regional activities particularly in yemen is the one they
5:21 am
dislike the most the saudis it's unlikely to work but it did certainly send a message there was a clear message that was sent to the lebanese system as a whole that saudi arabia will not just sit around and watch things happen all around them that they feel are threats to their saudi national security and well being so that message got through. and it's likely the saudis will pull back now not destabilize lebanon too much in return for some gestures from the lebanese government including from hezbollah we already had hints of this and hezbollah statements in the last few days saying that they're pulling out of syria they're pulling out of iraq that they never sent any missiles or arms to the rebels and in the sun and the m.n. the hoti who have been fighting back against the saudi invasion of of yemen so
5:22 am
you're seeing little signs already that both sides will probably make the required compromises at least in rhetoric that will. make everybody calm down and the situation will go back to where it was six months ago and i months ago and none of the underlying problems will be resolved what a shame that would be mr corey thank you very much as always for your time we appreciate it rami curry joining us live from new york thank you. at least fifty people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack at a mosque in nigeria and the attack took place during morning prayers in the town of movie in the northeast and a mama state no one claimed responsibility but police say the bombing bears the hallmarks of the armed groups. nigeria's president mohammed the hard to call the attack very cruel and pledged to secure the state with interest has the latest from the capital of. the attack came as washington is where gathering for an early
5:23 am
morning prayers movie itself has been relatively calm since its occupation by boko haram and later they were chased after one month stay in the city so the city itself is not far away from the bunker the butler said the epicenter of boko haram insurgency we've seen in the last few weeks or so how book what are the fighters from the forest the some of the supporters have invaded communities like medically like. the headquarters of medical its files and have killed a lot of people they attempted in the last one week particularly to retake the time but what is held by the military so a lot of people still believe that fighters belonging to boko haram although the group has not claimed responsibility has infiltrated community is about more far away from the boundary with border state so we probably will see the rise in the number of the people who died or who will die because of the severity of injuries that sustained in the early morning sack the sickle decided to stay there stepping
5:24 am
up their operations in the northeast of the country to calm things down and to finally defeat boko haram but over the last few months we've seen how book what i'm has adapted and could doing to target soft targets in the northeast of nigeria well syrian president bashar assad has held talks with his russian counterpart vladimir putin in a surprise visit to russia on monday the mission came ahead of a summit in sochi where person will host the leaders of turkey and iran and a syrian opposition conference in saudi arabia or challenge reports from moscow. ahead of a crucial few days for syria bloody may putin put on a last minute show with political stage management a surprise visit by bashar assad to russia and a meeting with the military top brass who prevented his government from collapse. and he knows and he told me today during known talks of that thanks to the efforts of the russian army syria has been saved as a state much has been done to stabilize the situation i hope that in the very near
5:25 am
future we will reach the final point in the fight against terrorism and probably will to come out of it who thanks to your efforts and the efforts of our allies many syrians could return to their homes and i would like to express gratitude to you for what you have done on behalf of all the syrian people. their meeting proceeds two events both beginning on wednesday and opposition conference organized by the saudis in riyadh and a summit in sochi where putin is due to greet presidents of turkey and rouhani of iran. russia iran and turkey have forged what some would say is a curiously durable partnership they support different sides in syria and have different goals every couple of months for nearly a year now the three have co-sponsored talks with syria's government and opposition forces in the kazakh capital astana by hosting this negotiation back to spearhead and them russia shows its growing influence in the region is that russia's back
5:26 am
after the soviet collapse it shows that russia is not a powerful player probably as powerful and united states at least as we must want to present itself negotiations have resulted in four deescalation zones in syria though often violated and much criticized by the opposition zones are made achievement of the estimate talks russia turkey and iran say that fighting has reduced enough to now push ahead with a political settlement in geneva balancing their different priorities isn't easy russia wants to. protect its regional interests turkey is still saying that. it is now primarily concerned with confronting the kurds and iran wants to finally crush all those saudi backed sunni rebel groups those disparate groups are facing pressure both on the battlefield and from their backers saudi arabia's opposition conference is an attempt to instill unity and perhaps some more flexibility before
5:27 am
any geneva talks on monday one of the opposition's most anti acid voices quits riyadh head of the high negotiations committee said his decision was forced after six years of conflict in the syrian war as foreign stakeholders appear to be looking for a way out and asaad is looking more secure than he has in years glory chalons how does era moscow. well u.s. president trump and that i'm a person have agree that there's no military solution to the wall and sylvia that is spoke on the phone following putin's surprise meeting with the syrian president and silje committee how can has more from washington d.c. the call between vladimir putin and donald trump comes on the heels of their very informal meetings along the sidelines of the apec economic summit in vietnam and while the two in this latest call did not discuss russian meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election they did talk syria with both leaders agreeing that the way to resolve the
5:28 am
crisis is diplomatically. we had a great goal with. syria. we're talking about north korea we had a poll that lasted almost an hour and a half we just put out a release on the poll but we're just very strongly about bringing peace to syria what donald trump did not answer however when asked by reporters is whether it's his view that the future of syria includes bosher all asada remaining in power now this is a very stark contrast to donald trump's predecessor barack obama not only did obama come close to ordering air strikes on syria following a two thousand and thirteen chemical weapons attack but he also made very clear his view that there was no future for syria with bashar al assad in power still ahead on the news on the latest in the search for an argentine submarine that's been missing the navy

the to have you with us on the al jazeera new sound these are our top stories zimbabwe's president robert mugabe has resigned as the country's leader after thirty seven years in power with a new spark scenes of jubilation around the country with thousands calling into the streets. resignation letter to parliament but in the whole. proceedings by his. lebanon's prime minister he has arrived in beirut two weeks after announcing his shock resignation from saudi arabia and at least fifty people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack at a mosque in nigeria the attack took place during morning prayers in the town of movie in the northeastern part of the state. the u.n. command says north korea has violated the armistice agreement after one of its
5:33 am
soldiers crossed the border between the two koreas this video shows a soldier crossing the military demarcation line as he and as he chases the defector before hesitating and turning back to the north south korean soldiers rescued the defecting soldier dragging him to safety on the south side of the front here he remains in hospital and south korea following surgery. the key findings of the special investigation team are that the k.p.a. violated the armistice agreement by one firing weapons across the aisle and two by actually crossing the temporarily you can see personnel at the jail say notified k.p.a. of these violations today who are normal communication channels in. and requested a meeting to discuss our investigation and measures to prevent such violations. well let's get more on this now with our correspondent kathleen nowak she's joining
5:34 am
us live from seoul to talk us through what exactly we're looking at and the video cathy well this was a defection of that occurred last week and we were told at the time by the u.s. and south korean joint command a few details of what happened but now the u.n. see has released this c.c.t.v. footage showing parts of exactly what went on so what we see is the north korean soldier initially driving in a vehicle towards the border at a quite a high speed and you see then north korean soldiers noticing what is happening and starting to pursue him at a certain point that vehicle becomes stuck and the north korean soldier is forced to exit the vehicle and run to board the south korean side on foot and we see in that c.c.t.v. footage the north korean soldiers that have noticed what has happened chasing after him and actually firing as we heard across the border what we heard from the update
5:35 am
today is that the united nations command has determined that is as you mentioned a violation of the armistice agreement that governs this area of the border that which is jointly patrolled by north korean soldiers on the northern side and by joint security forces south korea the united states and the u.n. on the south korean side what we also saw in this footage i was a hard to tell because it was shown through the heat that was coming from the north korean soldier but it demonstrated that the north korean soldier was lying on the south korean side and the other soldiers came towards him to drag him to safety and bring him to a hospital on the south korean side so quite dramatic footage that we saw today elizabeth what is the condition of the soldier now kathy and also how common is this type of incident. well the soldier has been in a south korean hospital since this incident last week and his condition has been of
5:36 am
high interest here in south korea we understand according to local reports that he has regained consciousness but further details weren't really given in a media briefing today by the doctor from the hospital when you learned last week was that this north korean soldier had parasites in his system which the doctor says he had only seen in textbooks so that gave some insight into the kind of conditions that north koreans are facing the kind of conditions that this soldier would be fleeing and those parasites we're told also made operating on the soldier a little bit more difficult so he remains in hospital though as i say we understand he's conscious at the moment in terms of how common this is over the years since the korean war there have been about thirty thousand defections but in recent years it's far more common to see those defections coming across the border with china
5:37 am
it's a much more rare to see what we saw in this incident which is a soldier crossing the direct border between north and south korea and even more rare in fact to do it at this joint security area this is an area that actually can be visited by tourists both on the south korean and the north korean side but we are told that when this incident occurred there were no tours happening elizabeth kathy thank you very much for that kathy novak joining us with the very latest from seoul thank you. the current round of talks between mexico the us and canada and updating the nafta trading in is entering its final day significant differences remain between the three nations raising doubts about whether a deal can be reached by the much two thousand and eighteen deadline washington has repeatedly said it's prepared to walk away from nafta which underpins much of the want trillion dollars annually and trilateral trade meanwhile the frontrunner and mexico's presidential election campaign wants discussions paused until after the

5:39 am
a drastic change in nafta as rules of origin now the united states wants other concessions as well not least of which is the so-called sunset clause which would require nafta to be renegotiated every five years again this is an aspect that neither canada or mexico want to make concessions to now in all there are thirty chapters to nafta that negotiators have to mull over ahead of that march two thousand and eighteen deadline. a usa call searching for a missing submarine has spotted white flags all over the southern atlantic. the argentine navy says it's unlikely they're from the vessel meanwhile hundreds of people attended mass and one aside is for the forty four crew members on board the area found on the submarine went missing last week more than a dozen international vessels have joined the search rough seas and strong winds have made rescue efforts difficult but authorities say conditions are expected to improve over the coming days. has more now from one of. our with each
