Nelson Chamisa says MDC has done ‘exceedingly well’ as vote count continues
Zimbabwe’s opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, has claimed he is “winning resoundingly”, as counting of votes in the country’s election continued.
Millions of people voted peacefully on Monday in the first poll since the army removed Robert Mugabe from power last year. Long queues of voters formed outside polling stations, and the Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC) said 75% of the 5.6 million registered voters had cast their ballots. Observers said they had seen few problems other than some poor organisation in places.
