Zimbabweans celebrate in the capital city of Harare after President Robert Mugabe resigned on Nov. 21

Mugabe's firing of his longtime deputy as the first lady positioned herself to succeed her husband led the military to step in, putting under house arrest the man who took power after the end of white minority rule in 1980.

Parliament has received a letter from President Robert Mugabe - Letter to Jacob Mudenda: Notice of Resignation.

Unemployment soared, public services collapsed and the economy shrank by 18% in 2008. "The voice of the people is the voice of God", he told supporters. This would allow the military to return to the barracks, and the new authorities to begin emergency negotiations with the country's creditors. Back in the 1980s the military was responsible for the massacre of thousands of civilians and Zapu supporters in Matebeleland.

Ousted Haitian president‚ Jean-Bertrand Aristide‚ and his family were hosted in 2004 for seven years.

She was later accused of treason and sought asylum in Australia after she spoke out against Zanu-PF's 2013 election victory.

"I am here to welcome my leader, our leader", said Nicky Chihwa, a 28-year-old student waving a national flag. Do you think he will be a true democrat? We don't really care who. Of course, it's very unfortunate that we had to send him home in this way. But now we've got another beginning so we are really excited.

Lesotho Prime Minister Tom Thabane spent his two-year self-imposed exile in South Africa. This quasi paramilitary group is an auxiliary association of the ruling party and has fiercely opposed Mugabe's attempt to create a dynasty.

"The army are not dangerous or corrupt", he said.

"There was an immediate food shortage", remembers Akinluyi. They are elder statesmen [sic] and will be respected and given their dues.

People thronged the streets of Harare singing, dancing and waving flags, while in the Rainbow Towers conference centre, a framed portrait of the president was ripped from the wall, torn apart and stomped to pieces by a cheering crowd. "He is our icon", Zambi said.

"It's a new day for Zimbabwe. We have to make a big celebration tonight", Claudius Masara said as he walked past smiling.

His sacking was the result of an increasingly bitter succession battle with Mr. Mugabe's wife Grace, who had been pushing to take over from the ageing leader.

But, even before he stepped down, South African political parties were already dabbling with the idea of hosting him and his family. The elections - if conducted in a credible way - will provide the next government with the legitimacy it needs to take the country out of its political and economic crises. We really have to give him a good-bye and we hope he will be in Zimbabwe.

The African Union has stated it will not accept a coup in Zimbabwe, but the Zimbabwean Defence Force has consistently denied that it is staging a coup. That cost the country approximately $285,000 (R5 million) a year. Dubai, Singapore or Malaysia are considered the most likely destinations. He appears at a graduation ceremony to polite applause.
