Zimbabwe’s main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has called on President Robert Mugabe to resign immediately in the interest of the people of Zimbabwe.
He has also echoed other opposition calls for a transitional arrangement.
The opposition MDC leader as said:
“Over the last five years or so our people have endured a lot of suffering.
“We acknowledge and salute the role played by our liberation fighters. We also appreciate the fact that the military has assured the sanctity of human life.
“We have a national crisis, and as leadership, we must confront this.”
According to the Zim Media Review Twitter account, Mr Tsvanigirai said it was up to the army generals to decide on the Mugabe couple’s future.
He also said his disagreements with President Robert Mugabe had always been strictly political – about the way he governed and managed elections, not personal.
