Mnangagwa Visit Marks New Era In Zimbabwe, China Relations

Mnangagwa, who was sworn in as president in November after a military takeover that ended Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule, is under pressure to bring back foreign investors and resolve a severe cash crisis, mass unemployment and dramatic price increases.
