My Hands Are Clean, Chamisa Tells Post-Poll Violence Inquiry

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa claims he beat Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa with 57.10 percent of the national vote against the latter's 42.10 percent in the July 30 presidential election. He was giving oral evidence before the Kgalema Motlanthe-chaired Commission of Inquiry into the August 1 post-election violence which saw six civilians shot and killed. Chamisa is under fire for allegedly inciting his followers to invade the streets to protest alleged poll fraud.
