Zimbabwe’s ruling party is signaling victory in the presidential election and telling the opposition that “we should all lose graciously.”
Spokesperson Paul Mangwana also tells reporters that opposition supporters were responsible for Wednesday’s deadly violence in the capital in which the military swept in with gunfire to disperse protests over alleged rigging in Monday’s vote.
He says that “it is not entirely true protesters were not armed.”
Mangwana also urges supporters of the Zanu-PF ruling party to “celebrate our victory with restraint.”
Zimbabwe’s electoral commission has said the results of the presidential election will be announced “very soon,” while a new joint statement by international election observer missions urges the quick release of those results.
