HARARE: Embattled Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe will meet on Sunday with the military chiefs who took over Zimbabwe in a bid to finish the disaster that has gripped the nation, state TV stated.

“President Robert Mugabe will meet the commander-elect of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (on Sunday),” stated the ZBC broadcaster, citing father Fidelis Mukonori, the catholic priest who’s chairing the talks between Mugabe and the navy.

The announcement of the crunch talks comes after tens of 1000’s of overjoyed protesters flooded Zimbabwe’s streets on Saturday, celebrating the crumbling of Mugabe’s ruthless regime which had managed the nation for almost 40 years.

The mass turnout got here after an unprecedented week by which the navy seized energy and put Mugabe below home arrest in response to his sacking of vice chairman Emmerson Mnangagwa.
