Soon to be President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa has landed at Manyame airbase where he has met army generals for debriefing.

The people who had gathered at the Manyame airbase waiting to welcome back Emmerson Mnangagwa – Zimbabwe’s president-to-be – have been taken to the ruling Zanu-PF party’s headquarters in the capital, Harare.

Officials want them to be there when Mr Mnangagwa gives an address after his arrival back from South Africa, where he fled after he was sacked two weeks ago.

Mnangagwa will leave for Zanu PF headquarters where he is expected to meet Zanu PF’s politburo and address supporters who have been waiting since 1 pm for his arrival.
