Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was sworn in as president of Zimbabwe on Sunday, faces the challenges of a worsening economy and a divided nation after a disputed vote.
In his first public address since winning disputed elections, Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa called on the troubled country to unite and "put the election period behind us and embrace the future."

With the announcement that six people had been killed in post-election violence, Zimbabwe was tense as it waited for the country's electoral commission to announce the outcome of the presidential election.
