Former Zimbabwean Minister of Education, Sport, Arts and Culture, Senator David Coltart says the Zimbabwean army were complicit in creating the mess the country finds itself in, and now they must clean it up.
Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe is facing growing calls for him to resign as head of state following Zanu-PF sacking him as its president.
On Sunday night the world tuned in for Mugabe's television speech, and were left confused and surprised as he read out a 20 minute speech which was not a resignation.
Last week the Zimbabwean army detained Mugabe and his wife in their Harare home, taking over all public announcements on behalf of government.
Coltart says Mugabe has been replaced by former vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa after his own party told him to step down and resign as head of state.
My interpretation is that they decided to the run up to next year's election that Mugabe is a liability and that Emmerson Mnangagwa was likely to win the elections, so they told him to go and now he is playing games with us.— David Coltart, Former Zimbabwean Minister
This is the end for Robert Mugabe - his party has rejected him and his people have rejected him. It is now just a matter of time to his impeachment - he is now just buying time just to get guarantees for him and his family.— David Coltart, Former Zimbabwean Minister
