Zimbabwe ready for a new dawn

Emmerson Mnangagwa has taken the oath as Zimbabwe’s president after a bitterly disputed election.
Mnangagwa first took office in November after Mugabe resigned under military pressure. He was declared the winner of the country’s highly contested July 30 elections. Movement for Democratic Change leader Nelson Chamisa challenged the elections alleging that they were rigged. The Constitutional Court on Friday rejected those claims.
The elections were marred by the army opening fire on protesters – killing six shortly after the poll – as well as allegations of vote-rigging and a violent crackdown on opposition activists.
Mnangagwa is now faced with a task of rebuilding Zimbabwe and setting it on a path of economic growth.
