Dali Mpofu to represent MDC Alliance as they challenge Zim election result

We are ready for Concourt MDC Alliance

The MDC-Alliance intends to scuttle the inauguration through an application challenging the presidential election results.

But the legal challenge to his victory is likely to delay his inauguration that was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

Two days after the vote, six people were killed in an army crackdown on protests against the victory by Mnangagwa's ruling ZANU-PF party, a reminder that Zimbabwe will struggle to fix its image as a nation known for repression and economic collapse. Chamisa said he will challenge the election outcome at the Constitutional Court (ConCourt).

Biti is also charged with making a false declaration of election results at a press conference the day after the disputed polls on 30 July.

The Constitutional Court, which can declare a new victor or order a fresh election, must rule within 14 days of an election petition.

Chamisa's legal team is led by Chris Mhike as the instructing attorney and Thabani Mpofu as the leader of the counsel.

Samsung to invest $22 billion in new tech to drive growth
The injection of money will be made over the coming three years and will be part of an overall $161 billion investment plan. The announcement sent shares in Samsung's contract drugmaker Biologics and in its IT affiliate SDS up five per cent.

The polls' aftermath has been marred by allegations of a crackdown on opposition members, including beatings and arrests.

Mr Chamisa wants the court to declare him the victor or call a fresh election, his lawyer told Reuters news agency on Friday. Elections are not won in court, they are won in the field. The opposition said the result was rigged.

"With the opposition criticising the results as fraudulent, several global observers highlighting irregularities with the conduct of the election and violent clashes between the protestors and national security forces, we see some risk that the election fails to offer Zimbabwe a fresh start".

In a joint statement on Thursday, the EU, US, Canadian and Australian missions to Zimbabwe urged authorities to guarantee Biti's safety and human rights.

The president-elect who is to be sworn into office this weekend and his party, Zanu-PF, have welcomed the court action.
