The leader of Zimbabwe‘s war veterans has said they will initiate legal action in the country’s high court to remove President Robert Mugabe.
Chris Mutsvangwa said the court action will argue the military takeover in Zimbabwe was legal because Mr Mugabe was derelict in his duties.
He went on to call on the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its chairperson, South African President Jacob Zuma, to assist in removing the 93-year-old president.
Mr Mugabe has reportedly agreed to stand down and his resignation letter has been drafted, CNN said, citing a source familiar with his negotiations with the generals who seized power in Harare last week.
Under the terms of the deal, Mr Mugabe and his wife Grace would be granted full immunity, CNN said.
