Live Updates - CNN Claims That Mugabe Has “Drafted Resignation Letter”

The news network claims to have received this information from “an official source with direct knowledge of negotiations.”
Live Updates - CNN Claims That Mugabe Has “Drafted Resignation Letter”
Said CNN:
Zimbabwe’s long-time president Robert Mugabe has agreed to the terms of his resignation and a letter has been drafted, an official source with direct knowledge of negotiations told CNN

The source said that the generals had given into many of Mugabe’s demands including full immunity for himself and his wife Grace, and that he would keep his private properties.

According to the source, the aim of Sunday’s televised address — in which Mugabe appeared to resist calls to step aside — was to ensure the veteran leader openly declared the military’s actions to be constitutional.

For the resignation to formally take place, however, a letter must first be sent to the speaker of Parliament, added the source.

Mugabe had stunned the nation on Sunday when he refused to say in a live televised address if he was stepping down.

Mugabe has been under tremendous pressure to step down since the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) seized power in a military takeover in the early hours of Wednesday last week. His own party, Zanu-PF, has already recalled Mugabe from being the party leader and first secretary of Zanu-PF. He has been given until midday today to step down or face impeachment.
