Zanu-PF lawmakers said that they would take the first steps to impeach Mugabe on Tuesday after he ignored their ultimatum to resign.

A military takeover last week was followed by huge street protests against the authoritarian leader, and the Zanu-PF, his own once-loyal party, has also turned against him.
