Emmerson Mnangagwa Will Not Include Opposition In His New Government

Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe won't face prosecution and is free to remain in the southern African nation following his resignation on Tuesday after 37 years in power.

"There aren't any plans for former President Robert Mugabe; he's free to stay in Zimbabwe and he won't face prosecution," Simon Khaya Moyo, a spokesman for the ruling Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front, said Thursday by phone. "We don't have anything against him or his family. He's the hero of our liberation."

Emmerson Mnangagwa, 75, is due to be sworn in on Friday to replace Mugabe, who's ruled since independence in 1980. Moyo said he didn't think any members of the opposition would be included in the new administration.

"To my knowledge, there aren't any plans to include the opposition in the government while Zanu-PF has the people's mandate," he said. "The party won the last election and will rule as normal."
