Zimbabwe’s President Mnangagwa Wins Another Term. The Opposition Has Rejected The Result


Washington Post: Zimbabwe opposition cries foul after leader Mnangagwa wins second term 

NAIROBI — Zimbabwe’s opposition on Sunday accused the ruling party of “blatant and gigantic fraud” after authorities declared the incumbent president the winner of last week’s election, despite allegations of voter intimidation and a crackdown on government critics. 

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, whose members are chosen by the president, announced late Saturday that President Emmerson Mnangagwa had won a second five-year term with more than 52 percent of the vote. 

According to the commission’s results, opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa garnered just 44 percent. 

The elections were held on Wednesday and extended into Thursday after some regions, including the capital, Harare, did not receive their ballots on time.
