Zimbabweans took to the streets of the Yeoville and Hillbrow districts of the South African city of Johannesburg on Tuesday to celebrate news of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s resignation.
Around 3 million Zimbabweans have emigrated from their home country to South Africa in search of work following Zimbabwe’s economic collapse.
A letter signed by Zimbabwe’s only president since 1980 said the decision was voluntary. The Parliament confirmed receipt of the said letter and subsequently suspended impeachment processes.
