MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa’s lead lawyer Advocate Thabani Mpofu speaks of his disappointment at a judgment of the Constitutional Court which said he had failed to make a case for the nullification of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s election.
He says in part: “The fact that ZEC changed its result three times over is not disputed, the fact that ZEC made a declaration on the wrong figures is accepted; the change to the CD by ZEC was shown to be false because ZEC soon revised that change once an application was brought.
“Here is the key question: Are we to stand by the first declaration which has been disowned? No we can’t. Are we to stand by the second declaration? We can’t, simply because it has been disowned by ZEC as false. Are we to stand by the third declaration? No we can’t, for too many reasons.”
