Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Friday he was humbled to be elected and called for unity after a poll marred by the deaths of six people in an army crackdown on opposition protests.

"This is a new beginning. Let us join hands, in peace, unity & love, & together build a new Zimbabwe for all!," Mnangagwa said on Twitter.

Mnangagwa, a former spy chief installed after Robert Mugabe's removal in a coup in November, secured a comfortable victory over opposition leader Nelson Chamisa on Thursday. (Reporting by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo Editing by Paul Tait)
