    After a week of political uncertainty in Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe has announced his resignation in a letter that was read by the parliament speaker on Tuesday.

    Minutes after Jacob Mudendahe read that Robert Mugabe had finally agreed to step down from the post of president after more than 30 years in office, the members of parliament started to celebrate the news.

    The first moments of the national joy captured on video have already made their way to the internet. As lawmakers began dancing right in the parliament building, ordinary people across the country started celebrating in the streets.
