Mnangagwa returning to Zimbabwe to take over presidency

Zimbabwe's vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa
Only about three weeks after he was sacked as Zimbabwe's vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa is set to make a dramatic political comeback.

State media reported Wednesday that Mnangagwa will be sworn in Friday as Zimbabwe's second president -- formally ending the tumultuous power saga that's gripped the African nation this month.

State broadcaster ZBC said Mnangagwa will return to Zimbabwe Wednesday evening. Citing safety concerns, he fled to South Africa after he was removed by former President Robert Mugabe on Nov. 6.

After Mugabe's resignation Tuesday, Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu PF party nominated Mnangagwa as his successor -- a move that was widely expected.
