President Emmerson Mnangagwa says he won’t emulate his predecessor Robert Mugabe by clinging to power, and may even give opposition leader Nelson Chamisa an official role, a newspaper reported.

Quoting recent comments by Mnangagwa to US media on his trip to New York to attend the UN General Assembly, the Daily News said the 76-year-old had no qualms about stepping down.

“We have now limited the terms of the president just to two terms… I will abide by that without any iota of resistance at all,” Mnangagwa said.

“You must give your people a chance to have other leaders,” he added.

Mnangagwa took over from Mugabe after a military takeover in November, and narrowly beat the MDC Alliance’s Chamisa in polls on July 30.
