Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has resigned. He has succumbed after a week of overwhelming pressure from the military that put him under house arrest, lawmakers from the ruling party and opposition who started impeachment proceedings and a population that went into the streets to say 37 years in power was enough. The capital, Harare, erupted in jubilation after the 93-year-old leader's resignation letter was read out by the speaker of parliament.
