Zimbabwe’s major competition chief, Nelson Chamisa, has filed a felony problem against President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s up to date election victory.

Mr Chamisa says he has proof to show that he was once cheated out of the 30 July presidential election.

His MDC Alliance birthday party say the vote was once marred by “vast theft and fraud”, but the electoral commission has stated there was “no skulduggery”.

Mr Mnangagwa received 50.8% of the vote when compared with Mr Chamisa’s 44.3%.

The Constitutional Courtroom can have 14 days to make a ruling at the criminal problem.

Mr Mnangagwa has appealed for peace and promised an independent research into the put up-election violence.

By narrowly profitable greater than 50% of the vote Mr Mnangagwa avoided a run-off election in opposition to Mr Chamisa.

But the felony challenge to his victory is probably going to delay his inauguration that was once scheduled to happen on Sunday.
