‘Zimbabwe election: Opposition rejects ‘fake’ poll results’

Zimbabwe’s opposition leader has dismissed “unverified fake results” after President Emmerson Mnangagwa was declared winner of the first election since the ousting of Robert Mugabe.

Nelson Chamisa’s MDC Alliance party vowed to launch a legal challenge, saying the vote was rigged. Mr Mnangagwa has urged Zimbabweans to unite behind his presidency. Troops are patrolling the streets of the capital Harare after protests on Wednesday left six people dead.
