United Nations Deputy Secretary General Amina Mohammed has commended Zimbabweans for removing Robert Mugabe.

She was speaking at a time when Zimbabweans have gathered to welcome Emmerson Mnangagwa as their new leader in the capital Harare. Mugabe announced his resignation last week following a military take over.

Mohammed is in South Africa to deliver 15th Annual Nelson Mandela Lecture. In an exclusive interview with SABC news she spoke about the current situation in Zimbabwe.

“I think that it is a new era for Zimbabwe. I think they should congratulate themselves that there came a breaking point where they questioned their leadership, but I also think that leadership should step down. I think a number of things came together for Zimbabwe it could have been so much worse.”
