Calls on President Mugabe to step aside have taken a new twist with University students refusing to write their end of semester examinations if their only known leader fails to step aside.
About 5,000 final year students of University of Zimbabwe are the first to demand that their embattled leader quits before they write their graduating exams.
The call by the students follows others by professional groups threatening a total shutdown of the country if he doesn’t leave office by Wednesday.
President Mugabe shocked the world when he failed to resign in a televised speech last night when all thought he was heeding the growing calls on him to end his nearly four decade rule.
His party has also begun impeachment processes after the deadline for him to step down lapsed on midday (1000hrs GMT) Monday.
President of the War Veterans Association Christopher Mutsvangwa said Mr Mugabe has no business staying 37 seconds more as president.
