Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has resigned, parliament speaker Jacob Mudenda says.

The surprise announcement came as lawmakers debated an impeachment motion against the 93-year-old leader in a joint sitting of parliament.

Mr Mugabe had previously refused to resign despite last week's military takeover, and days of protests against his rule.
