Emmerson Mnangagwa wins Zimbabwe’s presidential election Updated for 2021


Updated: February 24, 2021

Emmerson Mnangagwa was on Thursday declared winner of Zimbabwe’s presidential election, the first since long serving ruler Robert Mugabe was deposed.

He was the candidate of the ruling Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party.

Mnangagwa was an ally of Mugabe for many years before working with the military to depose him last November.

The election results, however, have been disputed by Nelson Chamisa, the opposition candidate who alleged widespread rigging. Mugabe had endorsed him a day to the polls.

“Mnangagwa’s election comes amid a tense atmosphere in the capital, Harare, where the military opened fire on rioting opposition supporters Wednesday, killing at least six people, police said at a news conference Thursday. The number of injured remained unknown,” The Washington Post reported.

“ZANU-PF and MDC leaders traded blame for the violence, and international election observers roundly criticized the lack of restraint from both sides. But it was the military that fired live rounds at unarmed protesters, and it remained unclear whether Mnangagwa played any role in their deployment,” The Post added.
