Now that President Robert Mugabe has resigned, Emmerson Mnangagwa is expected to take over as interim leader.

REUTERS quoted ruling ZANU-PF official saying that the former vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is expected to be sworn in as president following the resignation of Robert Mugabe, will return home on Wednesday.

Mnangagwa, 75, who fled from Zimbabwe in fear of his safety after being sacked this month, could be sworn in as president later on Wednesday or on Thursday and is likely to lead ZANU-PF into elections next year.

Mugabe resigned as Zimbabwe’s president on Tuesday, a week after the army and his former political allies moved to end four decades of his rule.

There were celebrations across Zimbabwe after it was announced that Mugabe who has led Zimbabwe since independence in 1980 has resigned.
