President Jacob Zuma on Thursday praised Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe for his contribution to the liberation of the southern African region and the decolonization of the African continent in general.

Johnson says Mugabe played a major role in the creation of an independent Zimbabwe but had "allowed that legacy to be squandered and his country went, I'm afraid, to wrack and ruin".

The 93-year-old had led the African country for 37 years, but resigned as impeachment proceedings began against him.

A letter from Mr Mugabe read out in Zimbabwe's parliament said: "My decision to resign is voluntary on my part and arises from my concern for the welfare of the people of Zimbabwe and my desire for a smooth, non-violent transfer of power". Presidents of Angola and South Africa cancelled a trip to Harare after Mugabe agreed to step down following pressure from the army, his party and ordinary Zimbabweans who flooded the streets.

Human rights campaigners hope the end of Mr Mugabe's brutal rule could mark a turning point for Zimbabwe.

"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", he said.

Zimbabwean advocacy group, the Election Resource Centre (ERC), on Wednesday welcomed Mugabe's resignation but highlighted the efforts Zimbabweans must make to ensure that a democratic election.

However, Mugabe and his family own several properties in South Africa and the couple's two sons, Robert Jnr and Chatunga live there.
