Zimbabwe incoming president Emmerson Mnangagwa told adoring crowds in Harare that they were witnessing nfolding full democracy as he returned to take power after Robert Mugabe stepped down after 37 years in power.

Mnangagwa, who has close ties to the army and the security establishment, will be sworn in as president at an inauguration ceremony on Friday, officials said.
