8:32 pm
for mary you have been listening to the next president of the republicans in harm's way. speaking outside of the zone i.p.s. headquarters in central harare so a very excited says crowds of they say of supporters and just want to bring in from me the our correspondent who's been listening in for me to he had a lot to say about the voice of the people he said the will of the people will always succeed the force of the people is the voice of power he talked about witnessing democracy this is really what everybody is asking is it what is his version of. that is an important question for people watching developments in zimbabwe but i'm going to go away use this opportunity to tool to see if we still forces. why happy with the overthrow. of the size the role. in these developments this
8:33 pm
speech very much. people talking about. very much what people here want to hear is any indication the way. he's looking to. use that would make the ball when specific it's. going to be over democratic principles that many people here very much. new governments a new president to embrace speaking at the podium. spoke about his forty's on it yet he thanked them in a tree he thanked. me also tell what the issue of factionalism within south. failed reference to race. allies around. as the. before
8:34 pm
indicating that they would no longer be a problem that this is a strong united said. that ultimately it's looking out. he also talked a little bit about the manner to which president former president. when he. has indeed stood down and the money by which the security forces had managed to i think he called it managing the process that again is something people watching from outside of africa and indeed even in the african continent are surprised that he went so peacefully. this appears to be in a critical. bullied issue as events unfold because the military initially intervenes but it appears as though the prose is. handed over to. very much have wanted to. follow these developments the p.o. both within and outside of the country also spoke about the response from the
8:35 pm
regional leadership the president of. the day as well as the president of the b.b.s. say that those heads of state as well as leadership other leadership from the. community had raised the bar and the military leadership here in zimbabwe as to how this. there wasn't any bloodshed this is a dream. for many people watching in the initial days considering that the minute she had intervened in the way that it did but there the prosecution was not suspended we do know that president robert mugabe was the man to house arrest. continue to be on the house arrest even as he resigned but the emphasis here is about this is a political process a constitutional one and one that's ultimately. in forcing
8:36 pm
democracy or at least how would appear in the wrong way for me to just quickly want to ask you lastly about the information he gave us which was he had been poisoned and one of the reasons that he left was because i believe he was fearful for his life was it something you've heard of before i think was a surprise to her. i think we may have lost. probably not surprisingly with all that's going on around here but i'm just joining now my grandson who is a seen here we saw the africa research institute extraordinary scenes really watching zimbabwe from here just on that point about had you been poisoned before what details you know about yeah i mean this this was a sort of back and forth for about a week in the zimbabwean media really where initially the rumors got out that he he had left the country had been lifted as he termed it in the speech to south africa
8:37 pm
. and accusation that he's been poisoned indeed by go dairies by a hose a poisoned scream code and the crucial go dairy is being owned of course by the gobby family so this was immediately seized upon as something that was linked to the first lady herself and all sorts of conspiracies about it it was it was quite riveting to watch but then when i was retracted that statement and then kind of returned to it i mean quite interesting that he brought it up there and it's like it's almost like a movie script this is into one of the interesting points i thought he made was i need the cooperation of the countries in africa i need the international cooperation and i'm already you see receiving support from the crucial i would think people from outside watching in how open are they going to now be in zimbabwe power of this old isolation and you know the former president how is that going to go well i mean i think you're right this was this was all this whole speech was all about legitimacy you know you mentioned the process already but also international
8:38 pm
legitimacy the fact he met with president zuma received support from presidents and maybe a and former president of tanzania. and you know he's trying to forge a new path with the international financial institutions with bilateral donors i mean huge challenge for zimbabwe right now. reengaging and repairing some of these relationships that there is already in the process which was started in october twenty fifth in lima peru and i.m.f. meeting. when it got well himself is quite closely associated with the process as it's called but zimbabwe has to repay one point eight billion over rears to the international financial institutions and where it's going to find the money to do that is always been the sort of really hard to contest the question do you think there will be assistance from the in the end he needs to be seen to turn things around quickly and i remember when alan johnston said he took over in liberia there
8:39 pm
was real pressure when she took over the positivity so the streets will be behind her still that's what he's dealing with here is where this will exactly and i think it's going to be a make or break nine months really and so far he seems to have quite considerable support from the u.k. and from the e.u. it's really just a question of whether the u.s. and others will sort of fall in line with that and and sort of open the doors in the end in washington at the i.m.f. and the world bank so that. you know zimbabwe can regain access to lines of credit so that people can restore confidence in the in the zimbabwean economy i mean at the moment there's such a shortage of of dollars that people have basically been queuing round overnight for you know to withdraw money from banks and. you know trying to transfer money among themselves electronically rather than holding physical dollars in there so i mean it is a real critical juncture for zimbabwe branson very good to get your thoughts on this extraordinary day. the international organization for migration says there
8:40 pm
are up to three million zimbabweans living abroad many are in south africa al-jazeera spoke to one man who says mugabe's departure has given him hope that he and his family could return home twenty pages more from johannesburg. progress might get a remembers days in zimbabwe when all he had to eat was an avocado from a tree in his parents' yard and the sight of his friend's injuries after he'd been beaten up by police for supporting the opposition so that night when i hear that my friend one of my friend. was tortured and isn't working you can't even wake up that's the truth. he left his family and friends with here the heart of one of robert mugabe's legacies is that his policies divided families and scattered zimbabweans over the world and this region's economic how the south
8:41 pm
africa has borne the brunt of that exodus in the street alone almost every house is occupied by zimbabweans many haven't seen their loved ones for years my brother was in the u.k. you couldn't make it even today if you know my my father in time either but he's been in regular contact with his brother asma gabby's presidency crumbled it's created hope for the first time in years although the men sit to replacement he has been part of the establishment for decades. now used to think of the people of zimbabwe. one to think whatever he did like. the vice president. gore. we don't know what. i think he deserves a chance. three month old son is even more of a reason to return home. now than there is this new future that. we
