Latest : Journalists wait for Nelson Chamisa’s election challenge

Crowds of reporters have gathered outside Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court in the capital, Harare, where the opposition MDC Alliance is due to mount a legal challenge to last month’s presidential election.

The coalition claims ballot boxes were stuffed and figures inflated to give Emmerson Mnangagwa his narrow victory.

If the court decides in favour of the challenge it could order a recount or nullify the election results.

The MDC Alliance has until midnight to submit its challenge; the court must then make its judgement within 14 days.
