Mnangagwa, Zanu-PF Win Zimbabwe Elections

The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission declared Emmerson Mnangagwa president shortly after midnight on Friday. The ruling Zanu-PF party won 144 of the 210 seats in parliament. But the opposition MDC Alliance rejected the result - just before the ZEC announcement, senior official Morgan Komichi entered the room and said the results were fraudulent. He was escorted out by the police.
