Zimbabwe: «Sit-in until Mugabe gives back his seat» — War Veterans leader

Christopher Mutsvangwa (English): «Yes, the party has recalled Mugabe. Remember? He went to Parliament on a party ticket. And the party has recalled him, and by the same token, the party has appointed somebody new to take over from him. Leader of Zimbabwe War Veterans, Christopher Mutsvangwa, held a press conference in Harare, following Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's failure to resign during... Еще a televised speech, Monday. Mutsvangwa stressed that Mugabe «is dragging his feet a little bit longer that he is due.' So we want to make sure that he leaves now. We want to see his back now. Mugabe your rule is over. The emperor has no clothes.» He went on to reassure that «it will be a sit-in until Mugabe gives back his seat to the people of Zimbabwe. We are not going to leave Harare until he is gone. This time.» The head of the War Veterans argued that Mugabe «is totally oblivious to the damage, which he's been doing to relations, because he is more preoccupied with indulging this coterie and his doting wife. That's what has been his business in Parliament.» Mutsvangwa also noted that the capture of the state TV channel 'ZBC' in Harare by troops «was never a coup,» asserting that the army stepped in where intelligence services have been «infiltrated» by Grace Mugabe's G40 allies and supporters, making army intervention a «necessity.» Mugabe was initially expected to resign on Monday after the Zanu-PF central committee voted to sack Mugabe and replace him with his former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa. However, Mugabe refused calls to step down and vowed to stay on as president in a defiant TV address to the people of Zimbabwe on Sunday. Mugabe's sacking comes after the army seized the state broadcaster on November 15 and placed the leader under house arrest. The 93-year-old faces the possibility of impeachment by parliament.
