Emmerson Mnangagwa has taken the oath as Zimbabwe’s president after a bitterly disputed election.
Cheers ring out in a national stadium at his inauguration as the country moves on from the decades-long rule of Robert Mugabe.
Mnangagwa first took office in November after Mugabe resigned under military pressure, and narrowly won a July 30 election that the opposition alleged was rigged.
The Constitutional Court on Friday rejected those claims.
The 75-year-old Mnangagwa, a former Mugabe confidant, now faces the mammoth task of rebuilding a worsening economy and uniting a nation deeply divided by a vote that many hoped would deliver change.
