Zimbabwe opposition postpones Chamisa inauguration

Nelson Chamisa

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has postponed the mock inauguration of its opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, following a cholera outbreak that has killed around 26 people.

“The anniversary rally will go ahead at a later date to be advised and the venue will remain the same,” the MDC said.

The mock ceremony was to coincide with the MDC’s 19th anniversary rally at Gwanzura stadium in Highfield Township, the epicentre of the outbreak.

Mr Chamisa says he was robbed of his victory by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the July election.
