New party forms in Zimbabwe with Mugabe's backing

Associated Press


Ambrose Mutinhiri, a veteran of the 1970s war against white minority rule, met Mugabe on Sunday before announcing he had formed an opposition party named the National Patriotic Front. Mutinhiri had resigned from parliament last week, citing the military intervention that pressured 94-year-old Mugabe into stepping down in November as his reason for cutting ties with the ruling ZANU-PF party.

In Zimbabwe, Mugabe's exit drama is already playing on stage

FARAI MUTSAKA

Associated Press


... Gazing out on the crowd in a public place for the first time since November, a portrait of Mugabe had become a target of ridicule, a far cry from the reverence and dread it once induced. Such portraits of the man who was once the world's oldest head of state at 93 were instantly removed after he stepped down amid pressure from the army, the ruling party and a long-frustrated public.

In this photo taken on Wednesday, March, 28, 2018, a portrait of former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is seen during a play dramatizing the events leading to Mugabe's resignation, in Harare.
