Mugabe vowed to push ahead with a black empowerment program that he said will create jobs and economic growth that had been hindered by what he called "a tenuous and fraught coalition with uneasy partners" in the opposition led by outgoing Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who had favored attracting Western investment during the five-year coalition forged by regional leaders after the last disputed elections in 2008.

Mugabe also urged Zimbabweans to reject homosexuality.
