Party’s decision to impeach Mugabe ‘unanimous’

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — A Zimbabwe ruling party official says the party’s decision to pursue the impeachment of President Robert Mugabe was “unanimous.”

The party has agreed to begin the process when Parliament resumes Tuesday, even as the increasingly isolated Mugabe calls a Cabinet meeting for Tuesday morning.

Mugabe ignored the ruling party’s midday Monday deadline to resign or face impeachment.

The party official, Paul Mangwana, says the impeachment process should take two days and that the ruling party has the support of the opposition MDC party to help make it happen.
