Group underscores democratic election following Mugabe resignation

South Africa 'dangerous' for Robert Mugabe and wife Grace – report

The Democratic Alliance on Thursday said it would go to court to block any attempt by the government to grant asylum to deposed Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace.

South Africa is a unsafe country for President Robert Mugabe and his wife, Grace, to seek refuge as some of its citizens and worldwide human rights activists will hound the couple for crimes they committed there and in Zimbabwe, a top academic has said.

This follows an eight-day crisis sparked by the military taking over the country after Mugabe's refusal to leave office after 37 years in power. British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday that Mugabe's resignation gave Zimbabwe the chance to forge a new path, free from oppression.

"As Zimbabwe's oldest friend we will do all we can to support this, working with our worldwide and regional partners to help the country achieve the brighter future it so deserves".


Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was recently fired as Mr Mugabe's vice-president, is now expected to take over as the country's leader within 48 hours. This should assist with the peaceful transition to a new leadership.

"President Mugabe condoned human rights violations, defended criminal actions of his officials and allowed a culture of impunity for grotesque crimes to thrive".

"The immediate priority is to ensure that Zimbabwe has a legitimate government, appointed through free and fair elections in accordance with the constitution".

However, Pretoria was yet to issue any communication with regard to the developments in Zimbabwe after President Jacob Zuma called off his trip there at the eleventh hour on Wednesday after Mugabe resigned.
