Un Calls On Zimbabwe To Reject Violence

  • Zimbabwe election results Could the opposition party win

The electoral commission had said it would start announcing results for the presidential race from 10.30 GMT, but this was delayed as commissioners read out more parliamentary results. The presidential result has yet to be declared. "The presidential results were counted first in the polling stations therefore I have still to learn why it will be published last".

It was the first time the military was back in the streets since Mugabe's ouster - at that time, they were welcomed by residents as liberators.

Correspondents stress that Wednesday's violence is confined to the centre of Harare - an opposition stronghold - while other parts of the country remain calm.

Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi said the army had been called in to ensure "peace and tranquillity". "They are invited so that they assist the police with investigations".

There was tension at the Opposition party headquarters, as hundreds of supporters gathered outside, claiming that the entire electoral process was marred with irregularities.

The crowds chanted: "We want Chamisa". "They are stealing our election".

"The results are not a true reflection of the people who voted on the polling day".

Earlier, NAIJ.com reported that official results indicated that ZANU-PF on Wednesday, August 1, won the majority of seats in the parliament after claiming rural constituencies by huge margins. We've more votes than ED (Emmerson Dambudzo).

This photo taken on January 7, 2017 shows Zimbabwe's then acting President Emmerson Mnangagwa speaking during a funeral ceremony in Harare. "The strategy is meant to prepare Zim mentally to accept fake presidential results", he tweeted. "They caused massive destruction of property which includes shops and we are now assessing the extent of damage", she said, warning that such acts will be met with the full wrath of the law.

The police deployed 71‚000 officers countrywide ahead of the high stakes elections held on Monday.

What are election observers saying?

"The longer it (the delay in announcing the results of the presidential race), the more the issue of lack of credibility arises", European Union observer Elmar Brok said. Zec has until Saturday to do so.

The EU mission pointed out the "misuse of state resources, instances of coercion and intimidation, partisan behaviour by traditional leaders and overt bias in state media" but said Monday's election was largely peaceful in a break from the past. "Shooting us? This is not an election, it is a disgrace on our country".

He said it was his fervent hope that the peaceful environment would continue after the elections.

Protesters here have called for intervention from Southern African Development Community and the African Union, calling this a war between citizens and the Zanu-PF led government.

What are the parties saying?

A U.S. team said the election "fell short of what was needed", citing ZEC's lack of independence, the use of food, fertiliser and seed to buy votes and the ballot design which gave President Mnangagwa an inexplicably prominent position.

An opposition official told dpa three people died.

"We are going to have to go to war, go to war against ZANU-PF".
