impeachment(名詞)彈劾

This Tuesday, Robert Mugabe, who ruled Zimbabwe since its independence in 1980, resigned as president shortly after lawmakers began impeachment proceedings against him. He said in his resignation letter that he was stepping down for “the welfare of the people of Zimbabwe and the need for a peaceful transfer of power.”

自獨立以來就擔任統治者的辛巴威總統穆加比,在上周二面臨國會彈劾的壓力下終於辭職。他在辭職信上表示,他下臺是為了辛巴威人民的福祉,以及期望權力能和平轉移。

dictator(名詞)獨裁者

Mr. Mugabe, a controversial figure in Zimbabwe, ruled for nearly four decades through a heavy mix of repression of his opponents and rewards for his allies. On learning the news, crowds of people erupted into cheers, and poured into the streets of Harare to celebrate the stepdown of the 93-year-old dictator. It is widely expected that Emmerson Mnangagwa, the vice president whom Mr. Mugabe abruptly fired last week would lead the country until the next national election.

穆加比是一個爭議性的人物,他統治辛巴威將近40年,期間透過打壓對手並嘉惠盟友來治國。當民眾得知他宣布辭職後,紛紛湧入首都街上歡呼慶祝這位93歲的獨裁者終於下臺。一般據信,上周遭穆加比革職的前副總統姆南加瓦可能在明年大選前接任領導者大位。
