Zimbabwe's president calls for peace after court upholds vote win

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa called for peace and unity after the constitutional court on Friday confirmed his victory in a July 30 election, dismissing a challenge by opposition leader Nelson Chamisa.

“I once again reiterate my call for peace and unity above all,” Mnangagwa said on his official Twitter account.

“Nelson Chamisa, my door is open and my arms are outstretched, we are one nation, and we must put our nation first.”
