Robert Mugabe has not resigned as President of Zimbabwe in a live TV address, despite widespread expectations that his departure was imminent.The dictator was widely expected to announce his departure from power after the ruling party, Zanu-PF, removed him as leader and warned that he faces impeachment if he does not step down voluntarily.
In a rambling address to the nation on the state broadcaster, ZBC, he said the country needed to move forward and resolve the differences "between the generations".

"We cannot be guided by bitterness or vengeful both of which would not make any better party members or any better Zimbabweans", he added.
But the head of the influential war veterans association, Chris Mutsvangwa, said plans to impeach Mr Mugabe would go ahead as scheduled and said the people would take to the streets of the capital Harare on Wednesday.
