The former vice president ascended to the highest office of the land after a military coup led to the ouster of former President Robert Mugabe.

Speaking to the BBC’s Mishal Husain on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he reiterated his pledge to ensure the election is “free, fair and transparent”.

Mnangagwa expressed the hope that the majority of Zimbabweans would vote to keep him in office in the election which he said is billed to hold in July.
