Zanu PF says it will tomorrow file opposing papers against an election petition filed by MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa at the Constitutional Court challenging President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s victory in the July 30 harmonised elections.

Zanu PF Secretary for Legal Affairs, Cde Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana told the ZBC News today that a 12 member legal team is ready for the responses to litigation by Chamisa, with the opposing papers bearing testimony of the party’s commitment to safeguard the interest of the electorate.

“Indeed we shall be filing our opposing papers tomorrow [Monday 13 August] by and we are ready for whatever they are arguing as we are really committed to the case,” he said. 

The MDC Alliance filed a poll petition challenging the outcome of the 2018 harmonised elections which Zanu PF romped to victory, claiming two thirds parliamentary majority with President Mnangagwa winning the presidential race with 50.8%.
