Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe is going to be sworn in for his fifth presidential term.
“It is now this Thursday,” George Charamba said. Last week Friday, opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, withdrew court orders against the election result saying court would not be fair. That removed the last hurdle to 89-year-old Mugabe’s inauguration for a seventh term.
Mugabe is Africa’s oldest leader at 89. Mugabe became Zimbabwe’s president in 1987 after becoming the country’s prime minister in 1980.
According to the new constitution, the Parliament’s first meeting must be held within 30 days of the swearing-in day, on a date and at a time fixed by the President.
His daughter, Bora recently got traditionally married to her pilot husband and a church wedding is expected to take place at the end of the year.
