Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said he is worried about the security of Mugabe and wants the African Union to take interest in how the 93-year-old will be treated by the military who succeeded in pressurizing him to resign.
Robert Mugabe, on Tuesday resigned from his position after ruling the southern African country for 37 years since 1980.
The 93-year-old's resignation came after a week of intense pressure from the military and the public.
Despite an army takeover and expulsion from his own ruling ZANU-PF party, Mugabe had refused to step down in a defiant televised speech on Sunday, November 19, 2017. However, he sent a letter of resignation to the Zimbabwean parliament on Tuesday, November 21.

Commenting on the development, Mr Ablakwa, who is also the Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs said Akufo-Addo must invite Mugabe back to Ghana.
He said that even though he is grateful that the military treated the Zimbabwean leader with dignity, he fears the situation might change since he is no more in power.
"Mugabe already has close ties with Ghana…he was trained as a liberation fighter; he married his first wife in Ghana; his son was buried in Ghana, he loves Ghana.
“Akufo-Addo should offer a safe-haven to him,” he said.
