ED Mnangagwa inauguration cancelled…Chamisa corners ZEC

MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Robert Mugabe's former ally, narrowly retained power in last week's landmark vote, but the opposition MDC party has accused the electoral authority of rigging the result.

Chamisa is convinced that he won the popular vote ahead of the Zanu-PF leader who, according to ZEC, scrapped through with a slim margin of 50.8 percent to the plaintiff's 44.3 percent. "For now it has been stayed pending determination of the court challenge", Zimbabwe's Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi, said.

Advocate Mpofu said the applicant has enough evidence including alleged statistical misrepresentations by the elections administration body, ZEC and other factors that included an uneven playing field.

Mnangagwa's inauguration will take place 48 hours after the Constitutional Court announces its decision. We have a good case and cause!

"Zanu-PF has assembled a 12-member legal team to prepare responses to the unwarranted litigation being threatened by the MDC-Alliance leader Chamisa challenging the validity of the presidential vote", Chinamasa said.

The Zimbabwe president Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that his country is open for business, but this new law - the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Amendment Act - could scupper those plans as far as the U.S. is concerned.

The Court has ordered that Mr. Biti is to surrender passport & title deeds and report twice a week to police, not to interfere with witnesses or address political gatherings.

The MDC reported that its foreign lawyers had initially been denied entry into the Constitutional Court on work permit grounds. "We are seeking a declaration to the effect that the presidential election was not properly conducted", MDC party lawyer Thanbani Mpofu said.

The polls' aftermath has been marred by allegations of a crackdown on opposition members, including beatings and arrests.

On August 1, soldiers opened fire on MDC protesters, killing six people and sparking an global outcry.

Also on Friday, lawyers for senior opposition figure Tendai Biti asked judges to throw out charges against him over the protests against alleged election fraud, in a case raising further global concern about the new government.

‏Tendai Biti was released earlier today following my intervention. We call on Zimbabwe's leaders to guarantee Mr. Biti's physical safety and ensure his constitutional and human rights are respected, consistent with the rule of law and Zimbabwe's worldwide obligations and commitments.

It said it had received numerous complaints of "hunting down" and intimidation, often by men in military uniform, of voters thought to have backed the opposition.

"On the basis of the evidence we have placed before the court, we seek in the main relief to the effect that the court should declare the proper victor and the proper victor is my client", Mpofu told reporters outside.
