Harare | Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans were at Harare’s National Sports Stadium today to witness the inauguration of former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa to replace Robert Mugabe, a correspondent said.

Snipers took up positions around the stadium amid tight security as Mnangagwa supporters streamed in, with many dancing as music played, hoping to catch a glimpse of Mnangagwa, who will replace his autocratic former boss as head of state, according to the AFP correspondent.
