South African president Jacob Zuma and Angolan president João Lourenço will travel to Zimbabwe on Wednesday where Robert Mugabe is under pressure to resign or be impeached.

Zuma’s spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga said: “President Zuma in his capacity as chairperson of SADC as well the president of Angola should travel to Zimbabwe tomorrow morning to meet stakeholders in Zimbabwe both in government and in the army.”

Zanu-PF gave Mugabe until noon on Monday to resign or face impeachment proceedings.

His refusal to willingly relinquish power has resulted in Tuesday’s parliamentary process where a motion to impeach him has been tabled.

Impeachment proceedings are currently underway, and you can follow the live updates here.
