Zimbabwe's new President Emmerson Mnangagwa has addressed a packed stadium, vowing to serve all citizens.

He said he felt "deeply humbled" to take the role. And he said he was "not oblivious to the many Zimbabweans from across the political and racial divide who have helped make this day."

He paid tribute to his predecessor Robert Mugabe - to muted applause - calling him "a father, mentor, comrade-in-arms and my leader".

Why 'coup' that ousted former Zimbabwean President was successful

On Friday, November 24, 2017, former Zimbabwean Vice President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, will be sworn in as the nation's new leader after former President, Robert Mugabe, resigned from the position he's occupied for the past 37 years.

Former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe, 93, has reportedly been granted immunity from prosecution after his resignation as the leader of Zimbabwe.

According to a Reuters report, the nonagenarian was also assured of his safety in his home country, as part of a deal that led to his resignation on Tuesday.

The report quoted a government source as saying that Mugabe told negotiators that he wanted to die in Zimbabwe and that he had no intentions to live in exile.
