In an unexpected move, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe did not resign Sunday, five days after the army ordered his house arrest and hours after being sacked as party leader. The 93-year-old Mugabe gave a televised speech where he acknowledged “criticism” but did not step down from his post of nearly 40 years. Journalist Tatira Zwinoira joins Hari Sreenivasan from just outside Harare for more.
