Chamisa Congratulated By UN Chief For 'Winning' Zimbabwe Election

MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa has sensationally claimed he received congratulatory messages from UN secretary general Antonio Guterres as well as the UK and US governments for "winning" the July 30 presidential poll.

Chamisa, who polled 44,3 percent of the vote compared to President Emmerson Mnangagwa's 50,8 percent, was speaking to South African state broadcaster, SABC Wednesday.

"We are engaging the international community to continue to support the people of Zimbabwe. Most of them have congratulated us for the victory," he said.

"I have had calls from the secretary general of the United Nations, the British government, from the United States; they have all said, 'you have done very well'."

Chamisa said he was still going to be inaugurated as the country's leader even after Mnangagwa has taken oath of office.

"We won this election," he said.

"They (international community) were waiting for the declaration of the Constitutional Court but beyond that, I have not been able to hear their views.

"They know we won this election. They have the information; they have their own reports. This is now in our hands as Zimbabweans and that's why we are saying we will deliver them an outcome on the basis of who we are."
He added, "We have the authority. This country belongs to the people. There is going to be a proper inauguration very soon.

"New Zimbabwe is coming, you will see it. The people of Zimbabwe will ultimately take destiny in their own hands. You remember what happened with (former President Robert) Mr Mugabe in November. Did you foresee that?"
