On his first day in Zimbabwe, incoming leader Emmerson Mnangagwa and the rest of the motorcade drove through the capital Harare with a large police escort. Reuters’ journalist James Pearson caught the spectacle on video from a great vantage point, which you can see below, as the president passed a crowd of supporters.
Mnangagwa told crowds who turned out in Harare to greet him that “all patriotic Zimbabweans [should] come together” to ensure prosperity.
“We want to grow our economy, we want jobs… all patriotic Zimbabweans [should] come together, work together,” he told the crowds gathered outside the ruling ZANU-PF party’s headquarters, after his return to the country following the resignation of veteran leader Robert Mugabe.
He will be sworn in Friday morning.
