Zimbabwe’s inauguration: ‘Best Black Friday’

The inauguration of Zimbabwe’s new President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who in his address to a packed stadium, vowed to serve all citizens, is over. 

It is the culmination of a dramatic 10 days in Zimbabwe, with a military takeover, mass demonstrations and Robert Mugabe’s resignation after 37 years of authoritarian rule.

Mr Mnangagwa did pay tribute to Mr Mugabe, calling him “a father, mentor, comrade-in-arms and my leader”.

You can read the moments from his speech that excited the crowd in the post below.
