"The ERC insists that a smooth transition must be characterised by a clear road map towards democratic elections in Zimbabwe", ERC said.

Dr Asare also said the AU should put in place measures that will prevent African leaders from changing their constitution which will allow them to continue ruling since "this subverts the will of the people".

Mugabe, who had led Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980, resigned as president on Tuesday as parliament began impeachment proceedings after a military takeover.

Zimbabweans took to the streets of the Yeoville and Hillbrow to celebrate news of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's resignation.

"As Zimbabwe's oldest friend, we will do all we can to support this, working with our global and regional partners to help the country achieve the brighter future it so deserves", the Prime Minister promised.

Johnson said: "I will not pretend to regret Mugabe's downfall: but this can now be a turning point, a moment of hope for this lovely country, full of potential".

After 37 years as president Robert Gabriel Mugabe finally agreed to resign his post on the back of internal and external pressure.

With Mr Mnangagwa - a former ally of Mr Mugabe nicknamed the Crocodile - the likely next leader, Mr Johnson said: "I think it's very important at the moment that we don't focus too much on the personalities, let's concentrate on the potential, the hope for Zimbabwe - an incredible country, a lovely country blessed with extraordinary physical and human potential". The week-long uncertainty may have cost Zimbabweans sleepless nights but it was all about Mr Mugabe's determination to save...

He said Cde Mugabe left an indelible mark on the African continent by honouring the people's wishes calling him to step down.
