UK's Minister for Africa Visiting Zimbabwe

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) - Britain's minister for Africa, Rory Stewart, is visiting Zimbabwe to meet with political leaders and others from business and civil society groups.
    
In a statement, Stewart calls this "an absolutely critical moment in Zimbabwe's history" after the resignation of Robert Mugabe. He stepped down Tuesday after 37 years under military and political pressure and a public outpouring of frustration.
    
Stewart says that "the events of the last few days have given people here real hope that Zimbabwe can be set on a different, more democratic and more prosperous path.
    
"What comes next must be driven by Zimbabweans. It must be in line with the Zimbabwean constitution and will be impossible without clear resolve from the incoming government."
    
Emmerson Mnangagwa, a longtime Mugabe ally fired this month, will be sworn in Friday.
