Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has defied expectations of his resignation and instead called for unity in the Zanu PF.
On Sunday, Zanu-PF announced that it had expelled Robert and Grace Mugabe from the party, giving the president until midday on Monday to resign.
He was expected to announce his resignation during a televised address on Sunday night and millions of people worldwide tuned it - but he used the opportunity to address the upcoming party congress and did not resign .
He said a clear roadmap will be devised to solve once and for all any ommissions or contradictions that have negatively affected Zanu-PF.
Stephen Groote spoke to Zimbabwe National Editors Forum's Njabulo Ncube on these developments.
He is actually showing them that he knows this game. Those that know him point out that he is not an easy guy to negotiate with. He plays on people. If you look at the speech he is talking about constitutionalism, he has found that loophole and is saying I am in charge.— Njabulo Ncube , Zimbabwe National Editors Forum
Meanwhile Legal Policy Analyst Paul Kaseke says the army has given Zimbabweans a platform and space to voice their concerns.
Given the freedom that now exists for people to voice out their concerns I think what we are seeing is the expression of the Zimbabwean people's will, that the time for the old man is up and he should leave office as soon as possible.— Paul Kaseke, Legal Policy Analyst
