Mr Nyusi took the oath of office and pledged "to open constructive dialogue with all political forces and civil society organisations to promote peace" in a country ravaged by a brutal 16-year civil war that ended in 1992. "I represent a new generation, a generation that inherits huge success and exciting challenges," he said.
