Zimbabwean lawmakers are set to begin impeachment proceedings against President Robert Mugabe and vote him out of power within two days after he missed a ruling-party deadline to end his 37-year rule.

“We will move a motion tomorrow, set up the committee tomorrow and on Wednesday it reports back and we vote him out,” the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front deputy secretary for legal affairs, Paul Mangwana, told reporters Monday at party headquarters in Harare, the capital.
