Senior Zimbabwe opposition figure Tendai Biti arrested at border

Mnangagwa

MDC Alliance has missed the 4pm deadline today to file the court case to challenge the presidential election results.

He won the presidential race with 50.8% of the vote - just enough to avoid a run-off against the MDC's Nelson Chamisa, who scored 44.3%. "For now it has been stayed pending determination of the court challenge", Ziyambi said.

There will still be a core European Union team to monitor the election petitions in the urgent, and no doubt fiercely fought, court days ahead.

"The inauguration is no longer going ahead (on Sunday) as planned", Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi told AFP. If it does this successfully, the court could order a recount or nullify the result altogether.

There was great optimism that the elections would bring real change after the end of Robert Mugabe's 37-year rule in November. The Zimbabwe elections body, ZEC, declared Mnangagwa victor of the hotly contested polls with 50.8% of valid votes cast.

The foreign affairs ministry on Tuesday said the inauguration was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

Saquon Barkley's thrilling 39-yard rush in first National Football League carry
And he almost equaled Barkley's 43 rushing yards, coming up with 39 of his own for an average of 7.8 yards per carry. That means we'll get a chance to see No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield in action.

Zanu-PF has since put together a 12-member legal team to prepare responses to litigation by Mr Chamisa, who has been threatening multi-thronged action ever since he lost, including litigation.

After the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) announced the results, Chamisa called a Press conference and described the election results as fabricated and overblown to ensure the incumbent President's victory.

The challenge to the election result comes one day after MDC Alliance politician Tendai Biti appeared in court on charges of inciting violence.

Also on Friday, lawyers for senior opposition figure Tendai Biti asked judges to throw out charges against him over the protests against alleged election fraud, in a case raising further global concern about the new government.

Instead we saw violence breaking out and security forces targeting opposition supporters.

Diplomats and election observers were present at the hearing in Harare after Biti fled to Zambia but was handed back to Zimbabwean police despite claiming asylum.
