President Emmerson Mnangagwa has won the election in Zimbabwe, according to the country’s national commission.

Mr Mnangagwa won 50.8% of votes, with opposition leader Nelson Chamisa garnering 44.3%.

The opposition, Movement for Democratic Change- Alliance, rejected the results and had to be removed from the election commission stage by the police. Days before opposition supporters protested in Harare over alleged vote-rigging, resulting in the death of six people.

The opposition has vowed to challenge the result in court.
