Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa says his government has been in touch with the main opposition leader in an attempt to ease tensions after election-related violence in the country’s capital.
Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Thursday he wanted an independent investigation into the killing of three protesters when soldiers opened fire at election demonstrations, saying he sought to settle differences “peacefully”.
Three people were killed after soldiers moved into Harare on Wednesday, firing live rounds and beating protesters.
The government has condemned the opposition for the protesters who threw rocks and set fires after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said the ruling ZANU-PF party had won a parliamentary majority in the election Monday.
The opposition believes it was cheated of victory by a commission allegedly biased toward the government. The electoral commission says the vote was credible.
