ZimbabweanElections; One Person Shot Dead By Army

Published

on


Zimbabweans are eagerly awaiting the results of the presidential election after the ruling Zanu-PF party won the majority of seats in parliament.

An uneasy silence is settling over Zimbabwe’s capital after people fled military and other security forces firing live ammunition to break up opposition protests over Monday’s election results.

At least one person was killed.

Soldiers are stationed at intersections in Harare as the sun begins to set.

Hundreds of angry opposition supporters had gathered outside the compound of the electoral commission before scattering as the military moved in.

The violence came shortly after Western election observers urged the release of the presidential results as soon as possible and warned that a delay could lead to “volatility”.
