Zimbabwe parliament passes Mugabe impeachment motion

Zimbabwe’s parliament has passed a motion to impeach President Robert Mugabe on Tuesday.
A nine member committee has been selected to work out the modalities for Mugabe's exit and is expected to report back to parliament by Wednesday.
After the committee's report to the house, the Speaker is the expected to notify Mugabe of the move and that he is no longer the president of Zimbabwe.
The proposed special cabinet meeting called by Mugabe, scheduled for this morning, did not take place.
The president and his family have been put under house arrest by the military since last week.
On Sunday the ZANU-PF central committee resolved to recall the president.
That same evening the 93-year-old delivered a speech on national television, flanked by top army personnel, but did not resign as was widely expected.
