Zimbabwe’s incoming president Emmerson Mnangagwa has just departed from an airport in South Africa to make his return to Harare.

An Associated Press witness saw him depart, shortly after Mnangagwa met with South African President Jacob Zuma.

Mnangagwa is set to arrive at Manyame Airbase  in  Harare, and will be sworn in Friday morning at a local stadium.

Zuma’s office shared photos of Mnangagwa and the country’s president smiling.  ap
