Judgment on Zimbabwe presidential election results challenge to be heard today

The Zimbabwe Constitutional Court is today expected to deliver judgment on the election petition by MDC Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa contesting President Mnangagwa’s victory in last month’s harmonised elections.

The high-profile petition is the first to be streamed live from the apex court in the history of the country. President Mnagagwa picked up 50,67 percent of the total votes cast followed by Mr Chamisa, who garnered 44,3 percent.

If the court endorses President Mnangagwa’s poll victory, he is expected to be inaugurated within 48 hours as postulated under the Electoral Act. The ruling of the court will be final and cannot be appealed.
