Harare, Zimbabwe. (News of The South)-
Emmerson Mnangagwa has been sworn in as the new president of the Republic of Zimbabwe at a colourful ceremony witnessed by thousand s of people at the country’s National Sports Stadium in Harare.

A number of leaders and former leaders from the Southern Africa region attended the ceremony. Some of the dignitaries present included, Ian Khama of Botswana, Felipe Nyusi  of Mozambique, former Vice President Joice Mujuru, former Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, Zambian leader Edgar Lungu and former presidents Lupiah Banda and Kenneth Kaunda. Namibia sent Vice President  Nickey Iyambo and former Presidents  Sam Nujoma and Hifikepunye Pohamba

Mnangagwa became Zimbabwe’s third president but he is the country’s second executive President  since independence in 1980. He took over from Robert Mugabe who resigned on Tuesday this week following pressure from ZANU-PF, ordinary Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces.

The swearing in of Emmerson Mnangagwa starts a new dawn for Zimbabwe with many citizens optimistic of a brighter future following years of economic, social and political challenges under Robert Mugabe’s rule.

Ngwena or ‘The Crocodile’ as he is affectionately called by his supporters, Mnangagwa, was fired from ZANU-PF and Government as the country’s Vice President after accusations by party rivals that he was plotting to grab power from Mugabe. Mnangagwa denied the accusation and refused to concede leading to events that led to Mugabe’s resignation earlier this week and the historic moment when he took oath of the President.
