11:06 am
collapse it would be extremely difficult. to me and you politically to take. prime minister. all right we'll leave it there for now from beirut. 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 after thirty seven years in power and in the coming hours the man likely to replace him and the cinema will be returning home he's expected to be swiftly sworn in. zimbabwe's new president also reports from holiday. jubilation on the streets of harare across the country that robert mugabe rule for thirty seven years while to liberation as maybe even days. news demagogy was stepping down came as both houses of parliament sat in an
11:07 am
extraordinary session to debase the president's impeachment the speaker suspended 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 for thirty seven years we have been our fathers were there when. you went to war. what we're going to carry to show well listen here mugabe's departure comes an emotional week off the minute she first took to the streets intervening in party politics over his succession it likely means that this
11:08 am
man. will become zimbabwe's interim leader i had of elections in. those zubrin now some a cautious about the future and a person who's been proven by where you live to listen to people simply what you see what we. know if. we have only one look. and politicians like for a new fight hard. to top form a couple through these demonstrations and words ready. to play the game fairly. if it is not when to play the game fairly we will take him on you also we are sick and tired of the sun look here soon. i had for decades been a faithful mugabe lieutenant described as a president's enforcer close to the army and nicknamed the crocodile if you would describe him as a democrat. many are right to wonder with the era we're much different from the
11:09 am
past on this night and for now though. 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. get the very latest now with how them without. how does the the day after the resignation fail to people wow they digesting it all. or this is the first day without robert mcgarvey and the newspapers kind of have the mood of how people are feeling there's a big sense of relief that the old days are gone and that there is hope. that something new and better is coming a muslim and a god was expected to arrive in a few hours people hope he will come and resuscitate the economy on the streets of
11:10 am
tel abrasions have died down somewhat people getting on with their lives this is first used to be a lot cleaner than this a many many years ago and now look at it it's looking very run down a sign of what economy has done to the city to the country the corner that's how most of them barbarians make their living selling on the streets vending they call it they sell anything they can find to to make ends meet are you not talking about people who go to school these are people with degrees some of them university degrees the current find work so there's so much hope that the man and god are when he arrives will tell people what he plans to do with the economy because a lot of people are just sitting waiting with nothing to do really hoping that something something good is coming and they hope that something good will be a change in the economic status a change in how their lives will be and they hope that. is the man who will bring
11:11 am
that positive change how smooth is the. expected to be given that he no longer is the vice president he's been sacked is the constitutional power still clear and obvious truth. it's not really so clear remember there is another vice president. who is out of the country when all this happened he was on a fishel business overseas and he was a lying to graceful garbage and robert mugabe and since all this happened he has not returned so he technically is still divides and so i suppose the speaker who's going to be giving a press conference soon or an hour or so from now may outline all those intricacies but i think it's safe to assume that mr hope was not coming back to zimbabwe because people are saying that he could be arrested for alleged corruption and other things he's alleged to have committed but in terms of him someone. but he seems to be a huge way behind him people seem to say he's the one for now who should take over
11:12 am
so all eyes on him when he makes his first public appearance what is he going to say is he going to be a leader for all the people or will it just be more of the same i will leave it there for now thanks so much. paul brennan takes a look at the life and career of a veteran zimbabwe and lead out robert mugabe they will never be. here there will always be. in control that was two thousand and seven. ten years later when the people left 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 and is 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 phoring potential rivals. one of the first to be
