Zimbabwe’s MDC opposition party has vowed to overturn in court President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s narrow election victory, alleging that he won the historic vote via, quote: “mammoth theft and fraud”.
The MDC has until Friday to lodge its suit.
Mnangagwa — formerly a close ally of Mugabe — won 50.8 % in last week’s vote, just scraping in above the 50% run-off threshold.
Meanwhile, there is still no word on the fate of opposition leader Tendai Biti who was arrested as he tried to flee to neighbouring Zambia.
The state-run Chronicle newspaper says Biti was among nine suspects sought for inciting the MDC protests after the announcement of the parliamentary election results.
