Zim elections were free, fair and transparent - Mnangagwa
Emmerson Mnangagwa was announced as the winner of an election held last week, with 50.8% of the vote.
HARARE - Zimbabwe's president has issued a rallying call to his country to unite behind him and work together to rebuild the nation.
Opposition leader Nelson Chamisa has vowed to challenge the result, saying that his Movement for Democratic Change group won the popular vote.
The party is threatening to challenge the outcome in the courts and has until 10 August to do this.
But speaking to Sky News in his first interview since the election result, Mnangagwa says the polls were above board.
“It was a free, fair and transparent process. From the campaigning to the period of the actual voting, everybody has declared the process free, peaceful and transparent.”
