Mnangagwa: I'm president of united & non-racial Zimbabwe

Robert Mugabe Mnangagwa: I'm president of united & non-racial Zimbabwe
Patty Aguilar | 16 December, 2017, 06:01

Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Friday the ruling ZANU-PF should aim to hold free and fair elections always, while his party endorsed him as its leader and official candidate for the top job when the vote comes.

Friday's meeting was the final step in Mugabe's fall from grace after the military put him under house arrest, hundreds of thousands rallied in the streets and lawmakers began impeachment proceedings. President Mnangagwa also appointed Major General Engelbert Rugeje as secretary for the Commissariat, while Cde Pupurai Togarepi was re-instated as the secretary for Youth Affairs.

The worldwide community will be closely watching the next elections, due by the end of July, following last month's de facto military coup which ended Robert Mugabe's 37-year reign. The 93-year-old had been the world's oldest head of state.

Images of Mugabe's face, usually plastered on delegates' dress and other paraphernalia, were conspicuously missing, as was Mugabe himself. He flew to Malaysia and Singapore earlier this week to visit family and seek medical treatment in his first overseas trip since last month's events.
