Harare: The President of Zimbabwe took the oath of office on Sunday, calling for unity following a disputed election that the opposition claimed was marred by fraud. Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, won the July 30 election with 50.6 percent of the vote, after ascending to the presidency in November 2017 following a military coup that ousted longtime leader Robert Mugabe, under whom he served as Vice President. “We are all Zimbabweans; what unites us is greater than what could ever divide us,” Mnangagwa said via his official Twitter. “Let me assure you that tomorrow is brighter than yesterday! Let us look forward to the journey ahead,” his statement continued, calling it “a journey of development, progress, and prosperity”. Ex-president Mugabe and opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, a 40-year-old lawyer, did not attend the swearing-in ceremony held in front of a large crowd at the National Sports Stadium in the capital Harare, Efe reported.
