    President Robert Mugabe is facing mounting pressure to stand down.

    The protests come not just from opposition parties, but also from war veterans who previously endorsed him.

    They say they would rather support someone who is not from Mugabe’s ruling Zanu-PF party than be led by a “dictator”.

    Al Jazeera’s Haru Mutasa reports from Harare.
