arrive. to. the top leaders of. the speaker of the parliament. michel aoun who is about to arrive and i can see the presidential helicopters flying over the area this is going to be crucial in. unity for. all the leaders here to commemorate independence day and we have no indication whatsoever about. next move some people affiliated with him his. own stepping down. different political leaders. all right we apologize for that we're obviously having
a bit of. listening to what our correspondent. trying to fix and come back to me a little bit later. now to the sound of cheering and dancing in the street the resignation of president robert mugabe was a moment to celebrate across much of zimbabwe thousands of people filled city squares as news spread mugabe was stepping down he was thirty seven years in power and in the coming hours the man likely to replace him imus and guy well will be returning home he's expected to be swiftly sworn in as in bob ways new president. reports from harare. jubilation on the streets of harare across the country that robert mugabe rule for thirty seven years while to liberation was maybe even days. news demagogy was stepping down came as both houses of parliament sat in an
extraordinary session to debase the president's impeachment to speak at the speed of the session and told m.p.'s that he received a letter. mugabe wrote that he was resigning with the media's effect voluntarily in order to facilitate a smooth transfer of power. to the crowds outside those who was many thought they'd never have ever since i was born i have never seen this day i'm so glad that you have been here we have been out. there when. you went to. bury. you mugabe's departure comes an emotional week after the military first took to the streets intervening in party politics over his succession it likely means that this
man. will become zimbabwe's interim leader i had of elections in. the exuberant now some a cautious about the future and a person who's been proven by. you've learned to listen to people simply what you see what. the people are now if we only speak on live. and politicians are gearing up for a huge fight ahead we've supported timonen got to talk form a couple through these demonstrations and words from the two men on guard was to play the game fairly if it is not well to play the game fairly we will touch him on you also we are sick and tired of the sun hope you soon. go ahead for decades been 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 a right to wonder with the era be much different from the past on this night and
finale not many k. . people are quite. liberated. while. 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. the latest now with. the big question when is the country get a new president. while it's it's complicated i think people now are still digesting what has just happened this is the first day without robert mugabe and this is the news people are saying that by a lot of released in the air people hoping that something new something better is coming and they're hoping that that man will be endless and when you will take over
from a robert mugabe is expected back in the country a few hours from now and people planned to celebrate his return and hear what he has to say and this is the iconic first street is. looking a little rundown a sign of what the economy has done to the bubbly this used to be a place where you come as a child and and sit with your family and talk and have luncheon and just celebrate life and just enjoy life but because the economy as a corner people are getting back to it you probably wondering why the celebrations of stop just because life has to go on some obvious one of making a plan if you miss a day not working you can't feed your family and there are no jobs here so people most people are vendors they sell anything from the nonnes tomatoes a phone and you talking about graduates people with degrees so they're hoping that . when he comes back we'll give him a sign of what he plans to do about the economy and hopefully it'll be good news
for the millions as we've been struggling for so many years so i mean i don't what has happened to me. you know resignation letter has been his home. we don't really know until some official actually tells us but now people in this private residence this speculation in the negotiations he obviously secured safety for himself and his family maybe he's also retained some of his assets but to be honest most people in zimbabwe don't really care anymore they don't want to hear about robert mugabe anymore to them he he's a reminder of the bad days the bad economic times here in zimbabwe so the key thing now is moving forward what is coming next. is a businessman people hope that means to apply his energy to the economy but some also worry we also just. people and not the small people on the ground so a lot of uncertainty in the air but while people wait life has to go on they have
to try and make some kind of money so they were getting on with their lives waiting for him to return a big. thank you i will leave it there thanks so much for that had him with us on. now reaction to mugabe's resignation has been coming in from around the world and many calling this a moment of hope for zimbabwe 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 thank you this is no it's not i do not know this is just so many years but that was just a. few. of. these are
a fraction of the hundreds of thousands perhaps millions of zimbabweans who have 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 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 a moment of hope for zimbabwe and for 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 go along the 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. so it's an bob which should advantage and promote mugabe's land reform program that stripped quite commercial farmers of property placing it in the hands of black people instead the use of robert mugabe's legacy in this region will be mixed many people supported his ideals but not the way they were realised and for a long time many people have forty should step down they'll be glad it's happened pace fully but not that it took so long tanya page out is there a johannesburg. the un security of korea of violating the arms this agreement that ended the korean war by chasing a defector across the border into the self this video shows that effects are being
