Streets quiet in Harare after election results

The streets of Harare are quiet with a heavy presence of military and police after President Emmerson Mnangagwa was declared the winner of Monday’s election.

A few Mnangagwa supporters are noisily celebrating near the entrance to the conference centre where results were announced.

Charity Manyeruke, who teaches political science at the University of Zimbabwe, says she is delighted. “There is continuity, stability,” she says. “Zimbabwe is poised for nation-building.”
