Emerson Mnangagwa to take oath of office on Friday.

Zimbabwe is entering a new era of democracy, incoming leader Emmerson Mnangagwa has said in his first public remarks since his return to the country.

The 75-year-old, whose sacking as vice president earlier in November triggered a military takeover, flew back to Zimbabwe on Wednesday, a day after longtime President Robert Mugabe stepped down.

Mnangagwa fled to South Africa after his dismissal, citing threats to his life.

He will be sworn in as president on Friday.

Today, we are witnessing the beginning of a new and unfolding democracy,” Mnangagwa told thousands of jubilant supporters at the headquarters of the ruling ZANU-PF party in the capital, Harare.

“We want to grow our economy, we want jobs,” he added.
