Zimbabwe ruling party impeachment motion - Mugabe a 'source of instability'

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe is a “source of instability”, has shown disrespect for the rule of law and is to blame for an unprecedented economic tailspin over the past 15 years, his ruling party said in a draft impeachment motion on Monday.

The ZANU-PF party said it would discuss the 93-year-old leader’s impeachment on Monday, after a noon deadline expired for him to resign after nearly four decades in power.
