Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, won the July 30 election with 50.6 per cent of the vote, after ascending to the presidency in November 2017 following a military coup that ousted longtime leader Robert Mugabe, under whom he served as Vice President. "We are all Zimbabweans; what unites us is greater than what could ever divide us," Mnangagwa said via his official Twitter. Credit: Reuters
