HARARE: President Emmerson Mnangagwa has once again emerged victorious, securing his seat as the leader of Zimbabwe for a second and final term. The election, taking place amidst a backdrop of staggering inflation, saw Mnangagwa winning with a 52.6% majority, as reported by the Zimbabwe Election Commission.

His nearest rival, Nelson Chamisa, despite having a significant following, could only muster 44% of the votes. With Zimbabwe’s economic struggles acting as a major point of contention, the election was largely seen as a pivotal showdown between Mnangagwa and Chamisa.

  • ZEC’s Stand: Despite the raised concerns, the Zimbabwe Election Commission has gone on record to declare the elections as “free and fair.”
