  • Zimbabwean students at Memorial University gather Tuesday evening to celebrate the resignation of President Robert Mugabe

Mugabe's resignation followed an impeachment motion adopted by Zimbabwe's parliament on Tuesday.

"The EU stands ready to accompany this process in cooperation with the African Union and SADC, and to assist the Zimbabwean people with all instruments at its disposal in order to meet that objective", Mogherini said in a statement.

"It reflects the importance of Zimbabwe psychologically to the United Kingdom, and the government attempt to show leadership among Western governments in how to respond to the leadership change there", he said.

Mugabe's successor, former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, will be inaugurated on Friday.

Mr Mugabe has not been seen in public since he delivered a televised address on Sunday night.

The ANC has also praised the Zimbabwean military for its "peaceful" handling of the situation to ensure a "smooth transition", in the wake Mugabe's resignation.

"President Mugabe condoned human rights violations, defended criminal actions of his officials and allowed a culture of impunity for grotesque crimes to thrive".

"Mr Mugabe's hands are far from clean and there is clear "reason to believe" that he orchestrated a series of massacres, known as the Gukurahundi, against the Ndebele people in the early 1980s".

"What we need to see now is free, fair democratic elections and above all not a transition from one despotic rule to another".

However, Pretoria was yet to issue any communication with regard to the developments in Zimbabwe after President Jacob Zuma called off his trip there at the eleventh hour on Wednesday after Mugabe resigned. Reports, however, indicate that army tanks had started withdrawing from their positions following news of Mugabe's resignation.
