Opposition Walks Out of Mnangagwa's State of the Nation Speech

The official opening of the first session of the Ninth Parliament saw President Emmerson Mnangagwa delivering his maiden State of the Nation Address. But opposition MDC legislators walked out of the house in the middle of Mnangagwa's speech, insisting they did not recognise the legitimacy of a leader who was voted into office by the "Zimbabwe Electoral Commission and the Constitutional Court".
