The party of Zimbabwe’s embattled President Robert Mugabe is to begin moves to impeach him.

A Zanu-PF official said a motion to strip him of the presidency would be presented to parliament today, Tuesday, November 21, 2017, and the process could take just two days.

The motion accuses the 93-year-old of charges including allowing his wife Grace to “usurp constitutional power”.

Military leaders, who last week intervened, said he will meet his exiled former vice-president soon.

Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa had fled Zimbabwe after Mr Mugabe stripped him of his position, seen by many as a way clearing the way for his wife to succeed him as leader.

The move riled top army officials, who stepped in and put Mr Mugabe under house arrest, though he nominally remains the president.

The military said they have planned a “roadmap” with Mr Mugabe for the future.

On Sunday, despite intense pressure Mr Mugabe surprised many by refusing to resign, instead in a TV speech vowing to preside over next month’s Zanu-PF party congress.

Mugabe has meanwhile called his cabinet for a meeting on Tuesday at his State House offices, the chief secretary to the president and cabinet said in a notice, the same day ruling party members plan to impeach him.

This is the first time the ministers are set to meet for their routine weekly meeting with Mugabe since the military took power on Wednesday. Cabinet meetings are usually held at Munhumutapa Building in the centre of town, but an armoured vehicle and armed soldiers are camped outside the offices.
