Zimbabwe’s newly sworn-in President Emmerson Mnangagwa vowed Sunday to open a probe into violence which followed the country’s first election since strongman Robert Mugabe was ousted from power.

“To put closure and finality to the matter, I will soon be announcing members of the commission of inquiry into the said violence who will, upon completion, publish their findings,” he said shortly after being sworn in.

“This is a different Zimbabwe, the dawn of the second republic of our Zimbabwe.”
