HARARE - The governing party in Zimbabwe has endorsed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as its leader and preferred candidate for the 2018 elections.

 

 

Zanu-PF has been holding a special conference in Harare.

Mnangagwa took power after Robert Mugabe’s resignation last month.

In his keynote address, the president called on the party to adopt a new approach.

 

 

“As a political party, Zanu-PF must always compete for office against opposition parties, elections that must be credible, free, fair and transparent. The principle of repossessing our land cannot be challenged or reserved," said Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
