Zimbabwe: Emmerson Mnangagwa Sworn In As President

Zimbabwe has a new president in the person of Emmerson Mnangagwa.

His swearing in ceremony this morning at a packed stadium in the country’s capital, Harare, follows the dramatic resignation of Robert Mugabe after 37 years.

The former vice-president’s dismissal earlier this month led the ruling Zanu-PF party and the army to intervene and force Mr Mugabe to quit.
