WATCH: Zimbabweans celebrate Mugabe's resignation

The resignation letter from Mr Mugabe read out by the speaker made no mention of who he was leaving in charge of the country.

Zimbabwe's political crisis has so far been peaceful ahead of Mnangagwa's inauguration on Friday. It's a "smart coup" in the sense that the military combined the frustrations of a restive population, internal party structures and international sympathy to remove a sitting president.

No-one is more important than the other - we are all Zimbabweans.

Mr. Mugabe's resignation was hailed by the international community as a chance to reshape Zimbabwe's future. The military says Mugabe and Mnangagwa have made contact and the fired deputy will return to Zimbabwe "shortly".

ZANU-PF officials have said that Mugabe and his wife, Grace, will be allowed to live in Zimbabwe.

The man who'll soon be sworn in to replace Robert Mugabe as leader of Zimbabwe, has returned to Harare and pledged to resurrect an economy that's on its knees. The military moves in overnight, taking control of the state-run broadcaster. The Zimbabwe African National Union (Zanu) was the political wing of the Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army (Zanla) during the liberation war.

Yes. People want to but thank God, Zimbabweans are very forgiving, they are a wonderful lot.

They imposed sanctions and threw mud on him.

Before the resignation, crowds rallied outside parliament, dancing and singing. Can you find the hidden pooch in this Facebook ferns photo?

Welshman Ncube, a barrister, constitutional lawyer, and long time opposition leader said: "Mugabe is a complex character".

When it was Mugabe who was manipulating democratic processes the liberals were up in arms.

Mugabe had been teetering on the brink of political ruin since the country's military seized power in the capital Harare, on Wednesday. Those are some of the things that we're going to negotiate at next extraordinary ZANU-PF congress on the 25th of December.

Even without the worst of her behavior - the abuses of power, the extravagance - it is hard to imagine that a figure like Grace Mugabe could have fit comfortably into the role of first lady in a country like Zimbabwe, where the legacy of the independence movement still looms large.

Robert Mugabe's wife, Grace, talks to then Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa at a gathering of the ZANU-PF party's top-decision making body in Harare on Feb. 10, 2016. We really have to give him a good-bye and we hope he will be in Zimbabwe.

Many Zimbabweans say the police were under pressure from their seniors to bring in bribe money - and were set monthly targets. But now, at the age of 93, President Robert Mugabe is witnessing his rule's historic end.

Meanwhile Zimbabwe's main opposition said it wanted incoming president Mnangagwa to dismantle all pillars of repression that helped sustain Mugabe's 37 years in power. Mugabe tired of pretending that he was not the maximum ruler, and so, in 1987, he peeled off Banana and took over as president himself, where he remained as chief authoritarian until last week.
