London. (News of the South) – The greatest expectation of all time for Zimbabwe to experience a presidential resignation became a shocking display of arrogance by Robert Mugabe, when he told a worldwide televised address that he was still very much in power. He even expects to hold the ruling party’s congress.

President Mugabe on Sunday night dashed the hopes of millions of seeing him step down from power.

In a televised address from State House, Mugabe was widely expected to step down in response to the previous day’s marches against him by tens of thousands of demonstrators in Harare demanding the of end of his 37-year-rule.

The worst shock Mugabe announced for his ruling party was that he would be hosting the ZanuPF party’s Congress in a few weeks in December.

Mugabe showed no signs of having heard about his expulsion from the ruling party including his wife a few hours before his expected resignation as a result of this.

There was a spontaneous reaction to the Mugabe’s stay in power with some reports that he had read the wrong speech or the fact the president does not resign in a speech to the people at state house but he resigns in a letter to Parliament.
The confusion is still reigning. Perhaps there’s another great expectation for Monday.

Parliament was expected to open and the constitution be followed to the letter.
The Zimbabwe War Veterans Association which is taking a leading role in pushing Mugabe out of power and replace him with the sacked vice president Emerson Mnangagwa has warned of an imminent mob rule.

The war vets leader Chris Mutsvangwa said they expected Mugabe’s resignation last but now it was up to the thousands of people who demonstrated on Saturday.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai of MDC was also shocked by Mugabe’s stay, he expected Mugabe to have gone.

Viewing the live television address there are fears that a wrong speech was read as General Chiwenga is seen taking away some pages from Mugabe. This has become a major issue of discussion.
The president even apologised for the mix up of pages and the long speech.
