Former Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa will be sworn in as Zimbabwe’s new President on Friday the 24th of November. Mnangagwa will replace his former mentor Robert Gabriel Mugabe to become Zimbabwe’s second Executive President. Mugabe who had been the leader of Zimbabwe since Independence in 1980, resigned as President on Tuesday, after sending his letter of resignation to Speaker of Parliament, Advocate Jacob Mudenda. In the process Mugabe avoided impeachment.
Mnangagwa who is out of the country is expected to return today. He had fled the country after alleged threats to his life when he was fired from both Zanu-PF and Government almost a fortnight ago.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, where he was advising the media of how the transition will work, Mudenda said that he had received a letter from the ruling Zanu-PF party nominating Mnangagwa to fill the vacancy in the Office of The President of Zimbabwe.
