However, another academic, Dr. John Akokpari from the University of Cape Town, said South Africa should seriously consider giving Mugabe asylum as the country was Zimbabwe's biggest trading partner in the region.

His resignation was announced by the speaker of Zimbabwe's parliament Jacob Mudenda.

The Chief Executive Officer of Irbard Security Consult has asked Africans not to jubilate over the forced exit from power of President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe's after 37 years of ruling the country.

The new government, the ERC said, must focus on strengthening state institutions such as the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission and the Zimbabwe Republic Police.

Mugabe's successor, former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, will be inaugurated on Friday.

That was after Zanu PF had booted as its leader on Sunday. This should assist with the peaceful transition to a new leadership.

Boris Johnson said the end of Mr Mugabe's reign appeared to be a "moment of hope" for the people of Zimbabwe, and should not be allowed to mark "the transition from one despotic rule to another".

"Mr Mugabe's hands are far from clean and there is clear "reason to believe" that he orchestrated a series of massacres, known as the Gukurahundi, against the Ndebele people in the early 1980s".

That decision was seen by many as clearing the way for Mr Mugabe's wife, Grace, to succeed her husband as leader.

Van Nieuwkerk said global human rights activists would come hard after Mugabe, 93, and force him to stand trial for the crimes he committed in the 1980s when over 20 000 Zimbabweans were killed in the Gukurahundi massacres in Matabeleland and parts of Midlands provinces.
