Published

on

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.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.

The country assessed all applications for visitor visas on a case-by-case basis. This applies regardless of a person’s country of origin or nationality.

The country is under pressure to transfer the remaining 30 children from the island.
