Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe agrees to terms of resignation


Local Time November 19th Mugabe makes a TV address. 

 
It's said that Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe has agreed to the terms of his resignation and a letter has been drafted on November 20th.
 
The source said generals had given into many of Mugabe's demands including full immunity for himself and his wife Grace, and also that he would keep his private properties.
 
The source added that the generals' aim with Sunday's televised address was to get Mugabe to declare the military's actions constitutional and that he accepted them.
 
The source said that for a resignation to take place, a letter must first be sent to the speaker of Parliament.
 
A defiant Mugabe stunned the nation he has ruled for 37 years Sunday when he refused to say in a nationally televised address if he was stepping down.
 
His party had given Mugabe, who has been under house arrest since the military seized power Wednesday, 24 hours to resign or be impeached, and thousands of Zimbabweans had taken to the streets Saturday calling for him to go.
