ANC welcomes Mugabe’s resignation


ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu says South Africa should learn from Zimbabwe that a liberator can turn into an unwanted dictator.

Mthembu has welcomed Mugabe’s resignation and praised the people of Zimbabwe for demanding change.

He says people of Zimbabwe should also be praised for the peaceful marches and jubilation that they expressed on Tuesday.

He says it was like a second Freedom Day in Zimbabwe.

“But of course as we do all the thanking, we must ask how does a person who brought freedom all of a sudden become the person that masses of Zimbabweans wanted to see the back of and becomes the person that people rejoice so much as he resigned,” he adds.
