Emmerson Mnangagwa has been sworn in as Zimbabwe's president in a ceremony at a packed stadium in the country's capital, Harare, APA reported citing BBC News.

 

It follows the dramatic departure of Robert Mugabe after 37 years of authoritarian rule.

 

The former vice-president's dismissal earlier this month led the ruling Zanu-PF party and the army to intervene and force Mr Mugabe to quit.

 

Mr Mnangagwa, who had fled the country, returned from exile on Wednesday.
