Major Blow for Zimbabwe Opposition Poll Challenge

Zimbabwean authorities have cast doubt on whether Nelson Chamisa's South Africa lawyers would appear in a Harare court to support the MDC Alliance leader's challenge to the July presidential poll. South African legal heavyweights Dali Mpofu and Tembeka Ngcukaitobi are already in Harare preparing for a case that could see President Emmerson Mnangagwa's election victory overturned - but the justice minister has declined to issue temporary work permits.
