Trump govt condemn use of deadly military force against Zimbabwe protesters

Zimbabwe election results Could the opposition party win

Zimbabwe election results Could the opposition party win

Several streets remained littered with the rubble and embers from Wednesday's clashes between protesters and soldiers.

Mnangagwa's government, meanwhile, accused Chamisa and his supporters of inciting "violence" by already declaring he had won the election, the first after former leader Mugabe stepped down in November.

John Dramani Mahama, former president of Ghana, urges all sides to exercise restraint a day after election-related violence killed three people in Harare, the capital. 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. The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), cheated and sidelined by President Mugabe for more than 30 years, was desperate to oust the regime that had persecuted it for so long. "This time we will not allow it, we will fight", said one protester who wore a red MDC beret in central Harare.

"We have the necessary legal power and enough personnel to deal with unruly elements in our society and if people want to test our patience‚ then they will be very disappointed; very disappointed‚" he said.

At least one person was shot dead by the soldiers near a bus rank, witnesses at the scene told a Reuters photographer.

The government has condemned the opposition for the protesters who threw rocks and set fires after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission said the ruling ZANU-PF party had won a parliamentary majority in the election Monday.

Police confirmed the death toll of three, and Mnangagwa issued a statement blaming the opposition for the unrest and fatalities.

"What they have done is intimidate people in the rural areas saying, "we will kill you if you vote MDC" and so on and then the worldwide observers say this election was free and fair".

In a late-night press conference on Wednesday, Home Affairs Minister Obert Mpofu said further protests would not be tolerated.

"I was making a peaceful protest".

"A truly level playing field was not achieved", European Union chief observer Elmar Brok said, pointing to the "misuse of state resources, instances of coercion and intimidation, partisan behaviour by traditional leaders and overt bias in state media". It called for transparency in the release of results.

The commission postponed announcing results of Monday's tightly fought presidential race, pitting President Emmerson Mnangagwa against opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.

The first parliamentary results trickled in this morning and put Emmerson Mnangagwa in the lead to win the landmark election in Zimbabwe.

The election, which pitched 75-year-old Mnangagwa against 40-year-old opposition leader Nelson Chamisa, was supposed to confirm the legitimacy of the post-Mugabe government and allow Harare to renew ties with the worldwide community.
