Zimbabwean President Mugabe Faces Impeachment

Updated on

Robert Mugabe has agreed to end his four-decade reign as the leader of Zimbabwe and is preparing a statement with the military authorities who took power last week, according to three people familiar with the situation.

President Mugabe, who at the age of 93 is the world’s oldest leader, took the decision after his ruling party told him to resign or face impeachment, according to the people, who asked not to be identified.
