Mugabe, Wife Granted Immunity from Prosecution


Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe and his wife have been granted immunity from prosecution, the military said Thursday, allowing the couple to remain in the country, the CNN has reported.

Col. Overson Mugwisi, a spokesman for the Zimbabwean Defence Forces, told CNN that an agreement had been reached with Mugabe that included immunity and a guarantee of safety for the former leader and his wife, Grace Mugabe.

Mugabe resigned on Tuesday, in a historic moment that brought his 37 years of oppressive rule to an end.
