Mugabe's resignation casts mixed emotions.

WINDHOEK, 21 NOV (NAMPA) ? While the exit of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe from active politics is hailed in some circles, many Zimbabweans will be looking at the situation with mixed emotions. Mugabe resigned as president on Tuesday in a letter read by Speaker Jacob Mudenda in Parliament. Namibian political analysts and commentators told Nampa on Tuesday shortly after news broke on Mugabe?s resignation that the next few years will be critical for Zimbabwe. Political analyst Dr Nico Horn is of the opinion that while many may celebrate Mugabe's departure, it could in fact be a wait-and-see situation for many Zimbabweans. He said the fact that Mugabe only resigned after a military intervention, speaks volumes of the political future of the southern African nation. CT/ND/HP (Edited by: Francois Lottering) NAMPA
