HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s incoming president Emmerson Mnangagwa has called on citizens to remain peaceful and desist from any form of “vengeful retribution”, days after Robert Mugabe resigned from power.

Mnangagwa’s supporters were angered by his dismissal early this month, a move that triggered the military to intervene. Some of the supporters have been calling for unspecified action against the G40 group that backed Mugabe and his wife.
