Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reached out to the MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa saying they should both address their supporters with the intention to call for calm in the country.
At least three people were killed when the army intervened in Harare against pro-opposition protesters who claimed that Monday’s general elections had been rigged.
Zimbabweans are anxiously waiting for the Presidential results after they took to the polls on Monday.
The SABC has reliably learnt that front runners in the presidential race, Mnangagwa and Chamisa had a telephonic discussion in an attempt to quell the current tension.
Mnangagwa is reported to have told Chamisa that in the interests of peace and security in the country the leaders must send a message of peace to their supporters.
Some observer missions such as the Commonwealth on Thursday morning have blamed both the MDC Alliance and the government’s security personnel for what transpired.
