TSVANGIRAI :I’M BAFFLED | MDC leader, Morgan Tsvangirai has said he was “baffled” by
President Mugabe’s address to the nation on Sunday when the veteran leader defied widespread expectations that he would resign.
“I am baffled. It’s not just me, it’s the whole nation. He’s playing a game. He has let the whole nation down,” Tsvangirai told Reuters. In a live TV address, Mugabe said he would preside over the ruling party’s congress in December.
Zanu-PF earlier sacked him as party leader, and gave him less than 24 hours to resign as president or be impeached.
The head of the War Veterans Association, which used to back Mr Mugabe but now demands his resignation, told AFP they would call for further protests.
“That speech has nothing to do with realities. We will go for impeachment and we are calling people back to the streets,” said Chris Mutsvangwa.
