Thousands rally in Zimbabwe against President Mugabe

 Harare,Nov 19(Fast Mail):--Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital, to demonstrate against the President Mugabe.

Members of the crowd gathered near the State House carried signs reading, “Mugabe must go!” and “Not coup but cool.” Protesters were also seen removing street signs bearing Mugabe’s likeness and stomping on them, as pressure builds for the 93-year-old longtime leader to step aside.

In a euphoric gathering that just days ago would have drawn a police crackdown, crowds marched through Zimbabwe's capital on Saturday to demand the departure of President Robert Mugabe, one of Africa's last remaining liberation leaders, after nearly four decades in power.

One speaker at the rally expressed popular anger at first lady Grace Mugabe, whose apparent attempts to succeed her husband were a factor in the military’s move.

“You and your husband should go today and not tomorrow,” the speaker said.

The military, who previously backed the rally, released a new statement urging protesters to be orderly and “vigilant against agent provocateurs” who might wish to discredit the push to get Mugabe to step aside.
