Newly-inaugurated Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promised that elections will be held in 2018 as scheduled and outlined a vision for restoring economic and financial stability.

Mnangagwa was addressing a packed national stadium in Harare after being sworn in.

He says Zimbabwe is ready to re-engage with the outside world after years of sanctions imposed after Robert Mugabe’s farm seizures and allegations of rigged elections.

Mnangagwa says the land reform process cannot be reversed, but he made a major announcement about compensation.
