Two houses of Parliament meet to decide on removal of Mugabe

HARARE, November 21 – The two houses of the Zimbabwe Parliament, meeting to consider the motion to remove President Robert Mugabe, has been moved to the International Conference Centre in the capital Harare in order to accommodate the joint sitting.

Political parties are seeking a speedy vote of no confidence in the 93-year-old leader who is under increasing pressure to step down after 37 years in power.

Parliament is too small to hold both the National Assembly and the Senate together and a decision was taken to move to the bigger venue of the convention centre.

Speaker Jacob Mudenda said that proceedings would start at 4.30pm.

A two thirds majority in the National Assembly and Senate is needed to remove Mugabe.
