Bye bye Bob....

 Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s leader for nearly four decades, resigned on Tuesday after being sidelined by the military, according to the speaker of parliament. The announcement marked the end of a tumultuous reign that lasted from the country’s independence through economic collapse.

The capital erupted in celebration, with crowds pouring into the streets, motorists honking horns and citizens giving high-fives to soldiers.

Mugabe’s exit marks a historic moment that will echo across Africa, where he was among the last surviving heroes of the anti-colonial struggle to remain in power, a leader who initially was lionized but came under increasing criticism as autocratic and brutal.

“The dictator is gone!” Takudzwa Jonasi, 32, chemical engineer, shouted as he celebrated with a jubilant crowd outside parliament.
