ZIMBABWE'S parliament has started with formal proceedings to impeach President Robert Mugabe.

Reports say the motion was brought forward by war veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Mnangagwa confirmed that President Mugabe made contact with him but such talks cannot supercede democratic processes underway like the impeachment motion in Parliament.

Mnangagwa told the Herald that Parliament was the ultimate expression of the will of the people outside an election rendering proposed talks between him and President Mugabe irrelevant.

Mnangagwa who was reinstated as a Zanu-PF Central Committee and declared the party’s Presidential candidate for the 2018 harmonised elections, he said he would return to Zimbabwe

“until I am satisfied of my personal security because of the manner and treatment given to me upon being fired.”
