Zimbabwe "has moved on", President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said in a statement after his predecessor Robert Mugabe called the change in power a "disgrace" which "must be undone".

Speaking publicly for the first time since he left office in November last year, Mr Mugabe criticised President Mnangagwa yesterday for "turning against him":

I never thought he whom I had nurtured and brought into government... one day would be the man who would turn against me. He could never have assumed the presidency of the country without the army which assisted him. We must must undo this disgrace which we have imposed on ourselves. We don't deserve it."

President Mnagagwa responded today in a statement which he also tweeted, saying the former president "is entitled to express himself freely, as is the case for any private citizen".

It continues: "The nation has moved on. Our focus at this time shall remain on preparing for free, fair and credible elections in 2018".
