Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa Sworn In, Pays Tribute to Mugabe

President Emmerson Mnangagwa was sworn in as the new Zimbabwe leader on Friday in front of a cheering crowd in a stadium in the capital, Harare. Mnangagwa said he was “humbled” by his responsibility to rebuild the nation and tackle corruption. The crowd responded with muted applause when Mnangagwa paid tribute to his long-time colleague Robert Mugabe—who was forced from power earlier this week—describing him as "a father, mentor, comrade-in-arms and my leader."
