A New Dawn For Zimbabwe

By: - Tendal Marina of Aljazeera Times 26th August 2018

Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged Zimbabwe to unite behind his presidency, while taking the oath of office following a divisive election that US observers said had called the country's democratic credentials into question

The Constitutional Court confirmed Mr Mnangagwa as President on Friday, dismissing a challenge by the man he beat in the July 30 ballot, Nelson Chamisa.

Thousands of Zimbabweans, some bussed in, and foreign leaders including South Africa's Cyril Ramaphosa and Paul Kagame of Rwanda gathered at Harare's national stadium for Sunday's swearing in.

"I exhort us to commit ourselves collectively to develop our motherland ? what unites us is greater than what could ever divide us," Mr Mnangagwa said in his inauguration speech.

He also reaffirmed pre-election pledges to revive Zimbabwe's crippled economy and settle outstanding debts with foreign lenders, and reiterated he would call an independent inquiry into a "regrettable and unacceptable" army crackdown following the vote in which six people died.

"Now is the time for us all to unite as a nation and grow our economy," Mr Mnangagwa said.

He took the oath before Chief Justice Luke Malaba who, together with eight other judges, had ruled on Friday against Opposition Leader Mr Chamisa's petition.

In the election, Mr Mnangagwa just reached the threshold of 50 per cent of votes that he needed to avoid a runoff.
