Zimbabwe’s longtime President Robert Mugabe has called a Cabinet meeting for Tuesday morning even as the ruling party moves to impeach him when Parliament resumes on the same day.
The notice from Mugabe’s chief secretary says the meeting will be at State House at 09:00 and all ministers “should attend”.
Mugabe ignored the ruling party’s midday Monday deadline to resign or face impeachment.
The ruling party accuses Mugabe of “allowing his wife to usurp government powers” and says the 93-year-old leader “is too old and cannot even walk without help.”Mugabe remains under house arrest after the military moved in last week, but the military is taking pains to avoid accusations of a coup. – AP
