To be in­au­gu­rated pres­i­dent twice in nine months is a rare hon­our, even you need the army and a com­pli­ant ju­di­ciary to keep the op­po­si­tion at bay. So it was that af­ter a bit­terly dis­puted elec­tion again took the oath of of­fice in Zim­babwe, hav­ing done the same last Novem­ber af­ter top­pling his men­tor, Robert Mu­gabe, whom he, more than any­one, helped to keep in power for 37 years. Whether he can keep the mil­i­tary sweet and re­vive the econ­omy he helped run into the ground re­mains to be seen.
