The New president Elect appealed for peace after six people were killed in post-election violence.

This was the first election since long-term leader Robert Mugabe was ousted.

Speaking to the press, President Mnangagwa said that Mr Chamisa would have “a crucial role to play in Zimbabwe’s president and its unfolding future”.

The opposition leader said he had evidence that ballot boxes were being transported in open trucks allowing them to be tampered with.
