Zimbabwe: Robert Mugabe Sworn in as President

Zimbabwe's veteran leader Robert Mugabe has been sworn in for a new five-year term in a massive stadium inauguration that was boycotted by his election rival.

Mugabe, 89, pledged "to observe, uphold and defend the constitution of  Zimbabwe" in an oath administered by Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku, extending his 33-year rule.

Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai insists the July 31 vote that returned the 89-year-old to power for the seventh term was rigged and shunned the swearing-in.

The event took place at the country's largest 60,000-seater sports stadium on Thursday, with around 40 world leaders invited.
