> ZImbabwe's presidential election has a winner and it's Emerson Mnangagwa the former spy chief installed as president after Robert Mugabe removal in last June's coup. 75 years old Mnangagwa secured victory with nearly 2.5 million votes Against 40 year old opposition leader Nelson Chemisa's 2.15 million. But Chemisa's Movement for dlDemocratic Change or MDC parties said it rejected the results minutes before Mnangagwa was declared the winner claiming it could verify the count.
The election has been marred by the death of six people on Wednesday in an army crackdown. The violence erupted after supporters of the opposition MDC took to the streets amid an ongoing delay in revealing the results of the presidential poll. MDC leader Chemisa accuses the ruling ZANU PF and Zimbabwe electoral commission of trying to rig the election.
