Zimbabwe's Mugabe granted immunity as part of resignation deal -sources

HARARE, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and assured that his safety would be protected in his home country as part of a deal that led to his resignation, sources close to the negotiations said on Thursday.

Mugabe ruled Zimbabwe for close to four decades but stepped down on Tuesday after the army seized power and the ruling party turned against him. Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice president, is set to be sworn in as president on Friday. (Reporting by MacDonald Dzirutwe and Cris Chinaka; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
