Failed Poll Challenge Leaves Zimbabwe's Chamisa With Hefty Bill

Opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa may have to fork out more than U.S.$3 million to meet the costs of the election outcome challenge he launched and lost at the Constitutional Court. Chamisa sought to overturn President Emmerson Mnangagwa's July 30 election victory, but the ConCourt unanimously dismissed his challenge with costs. Now his party has extended a begging bowl to its supporters to pay for legal fees.
