President Once More

Immediately after the electoral body announced his win, President Mugabe was sworn in for his second term in June 2008. None of his fellow African heads of state attended the ceremony. Mugabe consented to a power-sharing arrangement with Tsvangirai, appointing him to Prime Minister after facing international pressure. Neither leader has hidden his apparent distaste for the deal, but they managed to agree on a new constitution, which included a two-term presidency limit, in March.
