Embattled Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe has finally resigned.
According to the parliament’s speaker, Jacob Mudenda, Mugabe resigned in a letter addressed to him.
The surprise announcement came as lawmakers debated an impeachment motion against the 93-year-old leader in a joint sitting of parliament.
Mr Mugabe had previously refused to resign despite last week’s military takeover, and days of protests against his rule.
He has been in power since independence in 1980.
