The former vice president of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa has been asked to return home from exile.

His personal assistant Larry Mavhima disclosed this, adding that Comrade Mnangagwa will on Wednesday return home after staying in exile for more than two weeks.

Mnangagwa fled the country following his ouster by ex-president Robert Mugabe about three weeks ago.

President Robert Mugabe resigned as Zimbabwe President on Tuesday after much pressure by the country’s army and the plot by the parliament to impeach him.
