Zimbabwe Poised to Swear in First New Leader Since 1980

Former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, whose sacking by Robert Mugabe triggered the country's political crisis, is expected to be sworn in to replace Robert Mugabe as president later this week. Mnangagwa fled for his safety when he was fired by Mugabe, leading to a military intervention that culminated in the resignation of the 93-year-old leader.



Zimbabwe's incoming leader Emmerson Mnangagwa paid a courtesy call on President Jacob Zuma before heading back to Harare, Zimbabwe today, 22 November 2017.
