Hundreds Gather To Watch Legal Battle Over Zimbabwe Election Result

Published

on


Hundreds gathered around screens outside Zimbabwe’s top court on Wednesday to watch a legal showdown between President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the opposition leader challenging his July 30 election victory.

Hundreds of thousands more are expected to turn on their televisions to follow live footage of the Constitutional Court considering Nelson Chamisa’s petition that the vote was flawed and should be overturned.

Riot police blocked roads leading to the court in the capital Harare and vehicles carrying water cannon parked nearby.

Chamisa, 40, says the first vote since the removal of Robert Mugabe in November was rigged by a biased electoral commission.

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) and Mnangagwa say there was no foul play.
