The ruling party, Zanu-PF, appointed former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was fired by Mr Mugabe two weeks ago, in his place.

The party has given Mugabe, 93, until noon on Monday local time to resign as president, or face impeachment.

Reuters reports a source close to the negotiations as saying Mugabe has agreed to step down.

The ZBC state broadcaster confirmed that Mugabe would address the nation shortly from his official State House office.
