Emmerson Mnangagwa and celebrations on the streets of Zimbabwe at Robert Mugabe's resignation as president

Robert Gabriel Mugabe, our former president, is a great man. He fought for the liberation of our country.

Mugabe, 93, has been in charge since the end of white minority rule in 1980, and is accused of allowing his wife Grace to succeed him.

He has been in power since independence in 1980.

"The people of Zimbabwe deserve better".

Mnangagwa was targeted by U.S. sanctions in the early 2000s for undermining democratic development in Zimbabwe, according to the Atlantic Council, a U.S. -based policy institute.

A more pessimistic - but far more likely - outcome is that Mnangagwa simply takes power.

There are a number of nations that are ready to assist in Zimbabwe.

Remember however much we want a new Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa was, from the beginning, an enforcer for Mugabe, as were the generals.

But for the elections to be credible, the transitional authority would need urgently to reform the electoral system.

After defying his opponents for nearly four decades, it was perhaps inevitable that the famously stubborn leader would have one last trick up his sleeve. "We don't have anything against him or his family. They provided similar asylum to other presidents", he said.

Many supporters carried placards thanking Mnangagwa for his "resilience and endurance".

What about the new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa?

Mnangawa's exile in South Africa underlined the important role the powerful neighbour has played during the crisis. He fled to South Africa, where Nelson Mandela persuaded Banana to return home to face his sentence.

"Although celebratory, they may pose a risk to your safety and security", the agency warned travellers on Twitter. But I doubt [the] government would have to do the same for the Mugabes. "The ZANU-PF family will assist him, the family of Zimbabwe will assist him", she said. We lead building universities in Zimbabwe.

And Mr Ndlovu warns it may not be a quiet and peaceful asylum.

Soldiers controlled admission to the concrete complex, but allowed hawkers to sell ice-creams, bananas and soft drinks. "People want her to stand trial", he added. He appears at a graduation ceremony to polite applause.

At a party celebration, Emmerson Mnangagwa thanked the military for running what he called "the process" to force Mr Mugabe out. This quasi paramilitary group is an auxiliary association of the ruling party and has fiercely opposed Mugabe's attempt to create a dynasty. Perhaps it was deference to Mugabe as belonging to the first generation of African leaders, perhaps it was gratitude that during apartheid various leaders of the African National Congress took refuge across the border in Zimbabwe.

Nov. 15: The military announces that Mugabe is under house arrest and an operation has begun to arrest "criminals" around him who harmed the economy.

Deputy minister for International Relations and Cooperation Luwellyn Landers said, "At this point there is no indication he or anyone else has requested asylum".

Zimbabwe now struggles to earn cash from outside nations after strangling top export industries.
