Opposition leaders in attendence

November 24, 2017

According to the news site 263Chat, opposition leaders Morgan Tsvangirai and Joice Mujuru are among the dignitaries who have arrived to see Emmerson Mnangagwa being sworn-in as Zimbabwe’s new president.

It must poignant for them both – as they both have had their sights on the presidency.

Mr Tsvangirai beat Robert Mugabe in the first round of a presidential election in 2008, but withdrew after a campaign of violence by the ruling Zanu-PF party.

Mrs Mujuru was once Mr Mugabe’s deputy, but was expelled from the party in a purge orchestrated by former First Lady Grace Mugabe.
