Zimbabwe‘s opposition says it will mount a legal challenge to the election commission’s order for a ballot recount in last month’s contested polls.
Votes from 23 constituencies will be recounted on Saturday, local media say. A change in the parliamentary result by nine seats could see President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party regain its lost majority in the assembly.
A key minister said the army would not be used against the people, despite opposition claims of intimidation. Two weeks after the elections, official results of the presidential race have not been released.
Mugabe has lost and he’s not going to admit it alone, been a ruthless ruler is his thing and he has too many crimes on his back to give up now peacefully.
