From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 24 November 2017

Zimbabwe will officially have a new president later tonight (NZ time). Emmerson Mnangagwa will be sworn in after being named as Zanu PF's new leader following Robert Mugabe's resignation on Wednesday. Mr Mnangagwa returned from South Africa yesterday where he'd been in exile and talked of a new and unfolding democracy in a speech to the public. Correspondent in Harare Aislinn Laing will be at the inauguration and joins us.
