9:02 pm
man who will become the next president of zimbabwe says the country is witnessing a new stage of democracy vice president. made the comments to thousands of cheering supporters in the capital harare following the resignation of robert mugabe after thirty seven years in power. i don't really see. you i mean phone need to focus. on. the weight of your money this sosa's makes said brown only on this. one. president former president ok. you
9:03 pm
know. we've. always always said see. our sleeping he. was. well let's cross to free the melody who is life for us and harare i mean you are listening to the whole speech how different did he sound to his predecessor. well mungo over certainly wanted to use the opportunity to instill confidence in zimbabwe and that this time around things would be different talking about the importance of democracy and this being a new beginning for the country he said everything they wanted to hear talking
9:04 pm
about peace and job creation especially considering how the difficult circumstances involved winds have had to live under with a failing economy and who they consider to be a dictator robert mugabe the the former president so it appears as if when a government has departed from some of the rhetoric that zimbabweans have heard for decades indicating that this is a time for change he also looked back over the last a few weeks he's time in south africa when he had to flee zimbabwe and interesting enough he spoke about a attempt to poison him in recent weeks and at that time he in fact had to leave the country for medical attention so he's spoken about the difficulties he's also faced and in that way perhaps getting more zimbabweans on inside they already think of him as a hero. as well as the military intervened in
9:05 pm
a difficult political situation creating a new opportunity and renewed hope for millions of zimbabweans he made a lot of emphasis on the role that zimbabweans and subs play and how much the future is about them and the change they want to see so this very much about what zimbabweans are hopeful for in the days going forward as when a guard was expected to be inaugurated on friday he also talked about the voice of the people is the voice of power he said the will of the people will always succeed and he mentioned the word democracy outside of the zanu p.f. bubble if you like how do you think it will have gone down with the wider country with people sitting out. sign of harare valid and the belief may be that their voices could be heard or at least the people that they would vote for could be heard. this is a time away leadership here in zimbabwe would want to look for unity throughout the
9:06 pm
country given the political difficulties that face in the past the repression that the opposition and its supporters has face even looking back at the two thousand and eight election that robert mugabe lost and the military intervened in allowing him to stay in power what's important to note is that a man of god who made the sadrist at the zanu p.f. headquarters yes he is the president of the party yes he represents the ruling party but one would imagine that this could have been done at a neutral venue that would have given all the bob with zimbabweans rather the opportunity to perhaps participate and move away from the party specifically looking at the country as a whole macabre did praise zanu p.f. specifically in how it's handled the political situation in recent days and how robert mugabe was removed from the presidency of the party and ultimately resigned the opposition in this country would certainly continue to have support they are
9:07 pm
a lot of policies a sonic p.f. has that's put in place that zimbabweans haven't been happy with and again this has a lot to do with the economy and a million hundreds of thousands of the bobbins having to leave the country just because they can't make a living here and they can't support their families so given what's happened in the last few days those on a player is sitting in a very advantageous position given that it's been praise for the role it played in taking the country forward and ridding it of robert mugabe from a the miller there with the very latest from harare and we'll be talking a little later in the program little bit more about the challenges facing the new president. survivors of europe's worst massacre since the second world war have been celebrating a verdict by the international criminal court judges in the hague have sentenced a former bosnian serb commander ratko my luggage to life in prison for his role in the murders of eight thousand muslim men and boys in the town of srebrenica in one
9:08 pm
thousand nine hundred five in a moment we'll hear david changes report from srebrenica but first. at the hague the chamber finds. each guilty as a member of first joined common enterprises of the following counts count to genocide the verdict came a lot of his victims have waited decades for but the seventy three year old former bosnian serb general wasn't in the court to hear it he'd been a gentle moments earlier for this outburst the midst of that if you. if you continued like this. we adjourn his defense team had urged the judge to halt proceedings citing concerns over his blood pressure but the court rejected the plea finding guilty on one of two counts of genocide and nine of war crimes and
9:09 pm
crimes against humanity during the chaotic breakup of the former yugoslavia the court ruled that milan it's carried out a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing aimed at ridding known serbs from bosnian territory there's nothing curious of executing prisoners there's no security about . thousands of people from the whole. individuals prosecuted and convicted by these tribunals are in the receiver because there's been prosecuted and convicted for not respecting the geneva conventions among those crimes are some of the worst atrocities carried out in europe since the second world war thank you the four year siege of sarajevo in which an estimated ten thousand people were killed in shelling and sniper fire and the massacre of thousands of mostly men and boys in the town of srebrenica where my colleague david chaytor now reports. the mothers of srebrenica called once again in the horror of their own memories
9:10 pm
watching the court proceedings in the hague in a small museum in the middle of the cemetery where their loved ones are buried they wanted justice as ever then. when they came a surge of elation followed by a wave of emotion they'd waited twenty two years for this movie but they too have all had a life sentences families and villages torn apart a heavy burden of grief that they will take to that of great. among them was not jima caught in this iconic photograph of the genocide pleading with a u.s. soldier to help her get back a house meant her son and her brother but this was no safe so. they were gone forever so. i am delighted that the court has brought such a judgment i'm a happy mother i've waited for these judgment to twenty two years as a mother as a sister as a wife i personally fought for these so much from day one until today more than
9:11 pm
eight thousand muslim men and boys died in the killing fields around. but still one thousand victims have not been found every week in the forests and the hills around in this cemetery they're finding yet more. so the problem is what the future brings what do we leave toward children what happens after this the deep divisions between ethnic communities here look set to continue to serve member of the tripartite presidency of bosnia herzegovina said the court did not deliver justice but politics distrust instead of trust but. instead of reconciliation there will be new political conflicts when david chaytor is four still in srebrenica david incredibly moving pictures that of the mothers of srebrenica listening to the verdict in the end though there is a sort of key individuals who are being prosecuted but there are
9:12 pm
a lot of the the terror that was inflicted on this community the people are still at large still walking around the communities where these people are still living. yes that's the extraordinary and haunting thing about this situation that this is still a mixed community and those of frozen lines of conflict between them. i think are so deep that there can never be a reconciliation i was talking to many of the the mothers of said. in their communities and they said to me that they were surrounded by empty buildings buildings where their close family used to live and those memories every single day come back to them now they were brave to return in the first place they had to for so their way back into the house with police help that they were forced out of by i'm allowed to choose men and so in a way i don't seek they can ever be any hope certainly in the near future with the
9:13 pm
other politicians we have here in bosnia had to governor of finding any reconciliation a tool of breaking through a bit getting above such an awful history it is the case that one of the women was telling me that she remembers and she lost a son and a to two of her sons and she said that they they were the soldiers were raping young women in the streets they were choosing the pretty women they were doing it deliberately there were single rapes and mass rapes and was happening right there on the roads in front of their houses how can you ever forget stories like that situations like that the answers you can't so it's it's a small comfort for for these women and for the communities here about it's not a case of closure there can be no closure in cases like this as i said these memories will go to their graves with them. and you mention in your report there
9:14 pm
david about remains of people who were massacred still being filed and the effort still very much ongoing in that area to try and and find something of those who are still missing to really help those relatives and have some closure. yes it is extraordinary that this hunt for the one thousand victims that have been found is still going on but it's more a case now of people determined to try and find them some are in the forests behind me when they try to escape they were tracked down and killed those have been individual cases so very hard to find where their bodies are that are also probably being eaten by animals be in bits and pieces one of the women that i spoke to said that she got her two sons back to brave large tall boys she said and she got them back in pieces and they're now buried in the graveyard behind me
9:15 pm
so it is a case that it's almost impossible for these communities to live together when they have such memories and also of course soon as the case of many of those people who were put into rape factories run by the bosnian serbs they've seen their the people who raped them walking around in the streets and sorry ever walking around here they've never been convicted they've never gone before court they've never faced justice and now the victims can see them walking free so it is really is quite an extraordinary situation so the justice that they had in the hague has not been justice for all by any means david chaytor there with the reaction to that verdict at the hague and sharp and it's. still ahead on the news our report from bangladesh on efforts to tackle mao nutrition among ranger refugee children. this
9:16 pm
was spared the child but barack obama's internet regulation policy may not be so lucky we'll tell you our. sport a week after qualifying his team for next year's world cup australia's football coach calls it quits. russia iran and turkey have agreed to support a syrian people's congress bringing together government and opposition representatives speaking at talks in the black sea resort of sochi president vladimir putin said he believed a new state should be reached in the syrian crisis but he warned that achieving a political solution would require compromises from russia and iran major allies of syria's president bashar al assad who made a surprise visit to sochi on monday turkey backs syrian rebel groups well let's cross live now to road challenge who is monitoring those talks in sochi they
9:17 pm
sounded like they were the three leaders were speaking with one voice the impression in reality that you found. look well i think they all basically have come to agree that there is the need for a what they're calling congress of national dialogue and this is something that putin has been pushing for a few weeks now but there has been a sticking point for turkey particularly which is the turkey thinks that some of the groups that have been invited kurdish groups are terrorist organizations and so he has been saying to russia for the the amount of time that russia been pushing this idea that it isn't happy with this invitation. basically what this congress is supposed to be doing is inviting representatives from across the spectrum of
9:18 pm
syrian society to come here to start a couple weeks time at the beginning of december and sit down together and try and shouts the future of syria so it's about getting agriculture moving again about getting schools and hospitals functioning about basically rebuilding the country. and yes i think all three of the men here. were in agreement i still get the impression though that turkey is a bit lukewarm about the idea one thing rouhani said which i think was quite interesting was that he as he put it can prepare the ground for the new constitution for syria and i think this affirms some of the suspicion is all speculations about this particular congress which is that russia is trying to use it as a kind of interim measure between the start of talks which have been going on for the last year or so which are pretty much technical and about cease fires and the geneva talks much stalled of course which are about a political solution if this is true you know if we are going to have this congress
9:19 pm
then russia looks like it is trying to use it as a way to shape the constitution of syria maybe for for in its own image or its own eyes ahead of any geneva talks good to get your thoughts which i was there with the latest from this talks in sochi. lebanon's prime minister saad hariri has promised to support says he'll stick with them and defend his country. he was stepping down one saudi arabia. his resignation after request from the president dialogue. from beirut. he came home to take part in independence day celebrations eighteen days after announcing his resignation in saudi arabia it was the first time he has been back in beirut since that unexpected announcement and. he was received as a prime minister and warmly greeted by the president who publicly accused saudi

9:32 pm
big. welcome back a reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera i am always vice president and. addressed cheering supporters in here he said the country was witnessing a new stage of democracy following the resignation of robert mugabe. former bosnian serb general ratko my luggage has been found guilty of war crimes and genocide seventy three year old orchestrated the massacre of eight thousand muslim men and boys. in one thousand nine hundred five and lebanon's prime minister saad hariri
9:33 pm
has agreed to delay his resignation after a request from the president michel. returned to lebanon on tuesday. let's return now to our top story the return of former vice president. to zimbabwe i'm joined again by nick bronson a senior researcher at the africa research institute so having my dressings on. supporters outside the headquarters in harare now we're looking forward to friday the inauguration when he becomes president and then while he's in training is massive as it was first on the list well i think restoring confidence in the economy has to be a key priority and there's a huge domestic and external audience to address here firstly zimbabweans of lost confidence in the board know it's the sort of surrogate currency that was introduced as part of a basket supposedly for it to incentivize exports but it's definitely not done that
9:34 pm
it's just resulted in dollars flowing out of the economy and secondly to. international creditors and partners. international financial institutions so when i've got one has to really show he's serious about restoring calm. on the economy and tackling the absence of dollars. huge task on its own that will come with some conditions with us improving public financial management guaranteeing some sort of private property rights maybe even compensation. for people who were forced off the land i mean it's really hugely politically sensitive and also everybody will be looking in from outside thinking about investment will bring in new jobs which was the key one of the key things he talked about as to what he does politically and you use the word democracy. there isn't any kind of election going
9:35 pm
to happen he is just going to be installed do you think he'll not towards the opposition i think it's a really interesting question he i mean he's certainly under no pressure. you know formally to include opposition figures in in his government. any sort of gesture he makes would however be incredibly well received both by figures in zimbabwe and outside so there might be scope for some appointments but my hunch would be that you know he'll want to keep the finance ministry and local government and a lot of the parastatals under control of people in zanu p.f. with we want to on the election next july or august i think the removal if we can use that word. go away has sent a little bit of a shockwave amongst other african dictators are we looking at the possibility of an african uprising an african spring well i think we have to be really cautious here you know military intervention is not
9:36 pm
a positive thing on its own and the gains that we were hoping for in zimbabwe is far far from secure so i mean it's certainly send some shock waves among the older generation of leaders in southern africa really. polities national liberation movements are empowered they're generally quite good at handling their own internal successions and ensuring that unpopular presidents don't overstay in power and sacrifice the party a share of the vote so you know zimbabwe's been the exception rather than the rule in that regard and i think you know if we're going to see action it's not going to be one of them bob voice neighbors france and thanks very much for giving us your thoughts on this very special day. the international organization for migration says there are up to three million zimbabweans living abroad many are in south africa also as i respond to one man who says mugabe's departure has given him hope
9:37 pm
that he and his family could return home tanya page has more from johannesburg. progress might get a remembers days in zimbabwe when all he had to eat was an avocado from a tree in his parents' yard and the sight of his friend's injuries after he'd been beaten up by police for supporting the opposition so that night when i hear that my friend one of my friend. was tortured and isn't working you can't even wake up that's true. he left his family and friends with here the heart of one of robert mugabe's legacies is that his policies divided families and scattered zimbabweans over the world and this region's economic how the south africa has borne the brunt of that exodus in the street alone almost every house is occupied by zimbabweans many haven't seen their loved ones for years my brother was
9:38 pm
in the u.k. you couldn't make it even today if you know my my father and my mother but he's been in regular contact with his brother as mugabe's presidency crumbled it's created hope for the first time in years although the men sit to replacement he has been part of the establishment for decades. now used to think of the people of zimbabwe. one to think whatever they did like. the vice president. gore. we don't know what its capability i think he deserves a chance their three month old son is even more of a reason to return home. now than this new future that. we might benefit that might benefit our kids really need to go home i will definitely go home. now that changes come there's certain it will be for the better tinier
