Zimbabwe’s highest court has thrown a bid by the main opposition MDC Alliance to annul President Emmerson Mnangagwa‘s victory in the heavily disputed 30 July election.
MDC Alliance candidate Nelson Chamisa rejected Mr Mnangagwa’s victory, saying the poll had been rigged.
Mr Mnangagwa won 50.7% of the vote and Mr Chamisa 44.3%.
It opens the way for Mr Mnangagwa’s inauguration as Zimbabwe’s second elected leader since independence in 1980.
The inauguration ceremony is expected to take place this weekend.
