Zimbabwe court upholds President Mnangagwa's win

Zimbabwe's top court on Friday dismissed an opposition bid to have presidential election results annulled over alleged rigging in favour of Robert Mugabe's successor, Emmerson Mnangagwa.

"In the final analysis, the court finds the applicant has failed to place before it clear, direct, sufficient and credible evidence" of irregularities, Chief Justice Luke Malaba said in his ruling at the Constitutional Court in Harare.

"Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa is duly declared winner of presidential elections held on the 30th of July 2018."

Analysts had widely predicted the court would rule against the opposition MDC party's case.
