President Emmerson Mnangagwa has admitted that the country had been divided at the polls but had to remain united in building a new Zimbabwe for all.

At the end of the contest, main opposition candidate Nelson Chamisa of the Movement for Democratic Change Alliance got 2,147,437 votes representing 44.3% whiles Mnangagwa garnered 2,460,463 representing 50.8%.



In his first reaction soon after the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) declared him winner of the July 30 presidential race, the septuagenarian said he was humbled to have emerged tops of the race.

Thank you Zimbabwe! I am humbled to be elected President of the Second Republic of Zimbabwe. Though we may have been divided at the polls, we are united in our dreams. This is a new beginning. Let us join hands, in peace, unity & love, & together build a new Zimbabwe for all!” he said

The results indicated that Mnangagwa who was flagbearer of the ruling Zanu-PF had narrowly avoided a run-off with Chamisa. The MDC Alliance has rejected the final tallies.

The 40-year-old Chamisa and his party have repeatedly rejected the results they called untrue and fake. Even though Chamisa had flatly refused to go to court, AFP says his party were taking the legal challenge up.

Reuters said Chamisa had questioned the independence of the judiciary on Thursday and said he was reluctant to go to court to challenge the results of the presidential election, which he claims to have won.

“When you go into the court you are going into the lion’s den. We are not about to be a meal for lions. So we are very circumspect,” he told reporters.

Published

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
