The court petition that was filed by Chamisa’s lawyers was challenging the results that were announced by ZEC as they argued that the announced results where manipulated in favour of the President Elect Emmerson Mnangagwa of ZANU Pf.
“The petition has no merits; it has no foundation at law.”
“Elections are not won in court but there in the ballot box.”
“There have not even asked for the ballot boxes to be opened and to be counted.”
“It is based on some theoretical calculations.”
“Now that Zanu-PF has filed their papers responding to our Petition we now urge our members to now leave the esteemed judges to do their work.”
“We can see an attempt by Zanu-PF activists to try and intimidate the judiciary the Courts must remain independent and do their work.”
