FILE: Hifikepunye Pohamba (l), Robert Mugabe (c) and Dr Kenneth Kaunda at Edgar Lungu’s innauguration

Reuters reports that President Edgar Lungu has sent former president Kenneth Kaunda to Harare to try to convince President Robert Mugabe to step down in a “dignified exit” after the military seized power last week.

The ruling party removed Mugabe as Zanu-PF president and first secretary on Sunday and lawmakers from the ruling party were due to meet at the party headquarters on Monday to discuss impeaching the 93-year-old leader.

“Dr Kaunda used the presidential jet and has already arrived in Harare,” a senior government source told Reuters. Kaunda is also 93 years old.

Botswana President Ian Khama has also called on Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to end his attempts to remain in office.

The military intervention, which political sources say could pave the way to a national unity government after 37 years of Mugabe rule, also presented “an opportunity to put Zimbabwe on a path to peace and prosperity”, Khama told Reuters.

“I don’t think anyone should be President for that amount of time. We are Presidents, we are not monarchs. It’s just common sense,” Khama said

And Members of Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party are preparing to meet to discuss the possible impeachment of President Robert Mugabe, after a deadline for his resignation came and went on Monday.

The deadline was set by Mr Mugabe’s own party, Zanu-PF.

The embattled leader surprised Zimbabweans on Sunday, declaring on TV that he planned to remain as president.

Zanu-PF says it backs impeachment, and proceedings could begin as soon as Tuesday when parliament meets.

Mr Mugabe’s grip on power has weakened considerably since the country’s army intervened on Wednesday in a row over who should succeed him.

The crisis began two weeks ago when the 93-year-old leader sacked his deputy Emmerson Mnangagwa, angering army commanders who saw it as an attempt to position his wife Grace as next president.

    • Don’t give no credit to Lungu but to Almighty KK.
      We said this last week before Mugabe made peace with his generals.
      But now all is good in Zimbabwe, Mugabe made a good speech together with the Generals.

    • dont understand why Mugabe needs to step down

      He like EL were democratically elected through the people’s vote

      ONLY a vote after a term is the right way to remove an incumbent process

      Anyone thinking otherwise is a moron

      I hold a PhD so I feel what I am saying hold me credence than those without them

    • One way for KK to make fast cash in Zambia, in travel allowances, kamwendo munjila. KK knows Bob is one hell of an arrogant son of a bitch who will only be irritated by the presence of the senile ex-dictator. If lungu wanted to be relevant he could have gone himself and openly, like Ian, tell off the dictator to voetsek already. He has nothing to lose. After all Mugabe won’t delete from lungu’s head the dirty tricks he has taught him.

    • @1.2 Mushota
      Uncle Bob needs to step down on account of old age. It is perceived that his wife could be running the country on his behalf. It is that moment where you feel like you could go on but elements of old age trickles in and you in a kinda fix. Imagine KK leading us to this moment. Morally uncle Bob needs to pave way for others, preferably the younger generation. He needs a think break and witness how others can do while he alive. Uncle Bob has outlived our six presidents tenurely. But as you’ve put it, it should be within there constitution to handle such matters not the streets. He can’t walk unassisted nowadays. He must stepdown.

    • I am with you @ Mambala on this one. KK is no friend of Mugabe. KK preferred Nkomo to Mugabe as a lesser of the two Devils. I am not even sure if Mugabe will meet him. Mugabe has refused to co-operate even with his long time confident,his chaplain, Father Fidelis Mukonori, a Catholic priest in Zimbabwe, insisting he will stay on until the elections next year.

  4. Dr Kaunda alone is not enough. President Lungu should have constituted a council of elders to include Former Presidents Mwinyi or Mkapa, Nuyoma, Mbeki and Dos Santos to meet Mugabe.
    The Kaunda strategy of 1990 could be an ideal example. They could persuade Mugabe to resign at the next Congress, in two weeks, dissolve parliament, and call for an early election to be held in 90 days…..

    • @6 Zambia.. WE ARE ON THE SAME WAVE LENGTH, YES MUGABE MAY HAVE RESPECT FOR KK BUT ONE KK IS NOT ENOUGH- HE NEEDS A COLLECTION OF ALL THESE ELDER STATES MEN YOU HAVE MENTIONED. NOT ONLY TO URGE HIM TO RESIGN BUT TO REASON WITH BOTH SIDES AND FIND AN AMICABLE SOLUTION THAT WOULD END THE CRISIS PROPERLY. Mugabe resigning does NOT guarantee Mnangagwa a the presidency bcoz he is no longer vice President of the country and that will still keep the crisis going!!

      KK alone is the best ally who can neutralise bob. It’s was kk who moved in to bring independence to zim. Am only disappointed with the cowardice of the zimbos. Instead of fighting for the betterment of their own country they are busy running away from it and flooding other nations. They’re the only Africans from southern who are the majority in foreign lands. What a shame.

  6. Belonging to the same age-set is a critical factor in social interaction in our culture. The choice of KK therefore meets that expectation. KK was the last Head of State to had seen Saddam Hussein alive. Had he been listened to and taken the dignified exit route, he may probably be alive today. We had a troubled relationship with Zimbabwe freedom fighters when they were based in Zambia. In fighting and assignations were recurring. (remember Herbert Chitepo and Tongogara). KK put his foot down on this and the resultant assertions that he sympathized with Nkomo. KK brings with him that wisdom that Saddam declined and hope it won’t be the case this time around. In 1991, when things warmed up in Zambia, KK utilized that exit route.

  8. As a Brit who remembers the pre-Mugabe days I would like to clarify a fundamental point. The BBC News mentions Zimbabwe gaining indepencence from the British in 1980. This is incorrect. Those of us who were around at the time will remember the previous government was a white minority government that was in fact outlawed by the UK (through sanctions) and by the international community. BBC please get your facts right about what was a long and drawn out political conflict that favoured Mugabe’s rise to power!!

    • @11 MARK.. Yes there was Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) BUT that was NOT formal independence from British Rule per se. The Union Jack was still the flag, flying in Rhodesia so GENUINE INDEPENDENCE meant formally handing over government through an election of a popular vote. Mugabe himself and his freedom fighters refer to “freedom from Britain and end of white minority rule” I believe to mean both, end of UDI and end of colonialism.

      5

      1
    • To the contrary, you may recall that following the ceasefire in 1980, it was Great Britain which formally handed power over to the Zimbabwean nationalists. You may also recall that there was a Lancaster Treaty to which Britain was a party. Ian Smith and successively, Bishop Abel Muzorewa’s, were both illegitimate, if not transitional leaders.

    • @bwafyaa & @Imute, thanks very much for your truth telling. It is gratifying to see people who are using this medium (social media) to educate and CORRECT LIES about history.

      I take it @Harold simply remembers Rhodesia history differently. Maybe through the colored lens of “former Rhodesian White Minorities” (and I am not suggesting he is White. I simply don’t know!) But former White Rhodesians have always pushed a certain historical angle concerning Zimbabwe which is INACCURATE and FULL OF HOLES. Or one that is filled with HALF TRUTHS!

The timing is wrong and may prove to be a recipe for anarchy partial paralysis and acrimony in Zimbabwe. Zimbabweans should never even think about impeaching Mugabe because it is undemocratic and unconstitutional. He has committed no crime by being too old. After all, Zimbabweans allowed him to overstay. TheEmerson Mngagwwas were quiet when Mugabe assumed the role of a small god in Zimbabwe. The best is to take care of the so-called “criminals around Mugabe’ by using constitutional means. The man is too tired and too old to even know what could be going on in Zimbabwe. Why not allow him to get to the ZanuPf convention and…

  28. I salute the Military leaders in Zimbabwe for having displayed high levels of intelligence in the manner they have administered President Robert Mugabe status with respect. Comrade Mugabe is a 93-years old Freedom Fighter with ailing health. He battled the British over the land issue when they refused to honour a pledge as agreed at Lancaster House in 1980. The British recruited USA to heap blame on Mugabe just as the USA leaned on UK to concoct lies against Saddam Hussain in Iraq. Congrats to President Lungu for requesting our KK to talk to Mugabe. It pays to have a pool of elder Statesmen in Zambia. Peace in Zimbabwe augurs well for the people of Zambia. The Zambezi River is our shared resource.

    • That is why it is good to uphold integrity when one is in power. Robert has found that clinging to power is the only way to safe guard himself from being prosecuted for the atrocities he has committed during his reign. This has forced the Zimbabwe army to use undemocratic means of removing him out of government. I can imagine having a 93 year old person to continue running government. The responsibility is too involving for such an old man. Where can he get the energy to cope with the mammoth task? Where is can he draw the ambition to motivate him to work. His time is gone. When are the young ones ever going take up responsility. Robert understands this pretty well, but he can’t just give up because of what he has done while in government. Even if he wants to protect what he has, how far…

  44. Whilst its okay for Uncle Bob to go and it was time for him to go.
    But I have seen people celebrate the removal of a “tyrant” and they end up with a murderer.

    examples
    Uganda-Obote-Amin
    DRC-Kasavubu-Mobutu
    Libya-Quadaffi=Confusion created by the west
    Iraq-Sadam Hussein-Confuusion created by the west

  45. Whether it’s or not that KK was in Zim, I am not concerned but worried at how negative Zambians are about themselves. If indeed KK played some part in Mugabe’s resignation it’s a thing a patriotic Zambian should be proud of. But alas, it’s not so just because Edgar is mentioned in process. Is right only when it involves your preferred presidential aspirant? Then the slogan Zambia First is wasted.

  46. Kanyanta, something is actually wrong with you for not understanding what Mushota is trying to say. Gone are the colonial brainwashed days when people were discredited based on English, education, skin colour and limited time in office. What Mushota was trying to say is common sense – a leader should only be discredited based on the simple reason of his inability to perform. The question you need to ask yourself is, with six presidents since independence, what can Zambia show for it? What has democracy, young inexperienced leaders, achieved that which dictated Zimbabwe did not? Start using the sleeping common sense.
