"Emerson Mnangagwa was sworn in as the new president of Zimbabwe on Sunday. This comes after the election campaign which was widely seen to be neither free no fair. Although the vote itself was peaceful in the immediate often beyond me shot and killed at least six demonstrators and a campaign of retribution has been taking place against polling agents and opposition supporters across the country. The results of the vote, which in the constitutional court by Nelson Chamisa and his opposition MDC alliance, the court ruling dismissing. The challenge and confirming mnangagwa's president will be it with a smaller percentage of the vote has drawn international condemnation and would appear to indicate that the judiciary is highly partisan. Well, David Coltart is a human rights lawyer and a former MDC minister for education and a Senator in the Zimbabwe government. He joins me on the line from Bulawayo. David was the court case fair. Good morning. Gene note wasn't. It it was. Completely unjust from beginning to end the way the court proceedings were managed in my view was unjust for a very complicated case. The the original petition was over two hundred pages long. It had very detailed allegations, not just of voter fraud, but of constitutional violations. And they gave the lower twenty minutes to put forward his argument before the case even began. The government had fictive denied to me. So three South African Council who again, to argue particular aspects of the case. So just at the beginning, the the case got off to a very poor start. And I mean, when doesn't have to have a lot of legal knowledge to see that the stage being erected for the inauguration before the hearing has been handed down. Kili mean something's up will exactly in famous. The constitution does say that within forty eight hours of the constitutional court handing down its judgment. The new president has to be inaugurated Serse. Suppose they could have used that that argument. But we had far too many other stories going about how prepared they were for Emma Simpson gangway to be the chosen candidate will or others president at which indicated that of course, they knew the result. So what happens next legally can can there be an appeal, any kind of challenge? No, that's the end of the road. The constitutional court is the highest court in the land of the constitution itself is very clear that any challenge to an election ends with that judgment Nelson, Tim ISA has appealed to an African court, but it's largely symbolic. It has no power to dictate to this Imbaba Ian government toot to, for example, reverse any decision. So does it. The government really needs the international community, not least to stabilize the economy what can be done then by other countries is it just seen as interfering in a sovereign state. To the international community going forward is that we don't need any waste of agenda. We simply need international community to. Referred to symboblic constitution as Bob. We actually has a very good constitution was passed by referendum in two thousand and thirteen, although test some Arizona. Generally it is an excellent document and what the international community needs to do is to hold misdemeanor godwit to the principles contained in that constitution. What next then for this very divided country. I mean, there are two schools of thought one is that we just need to pull together and four symboblic to be a nation that works. We must go forward. And there are others who say, no, this is completely unfair, and we should never ever support this man who is really committed genocide and it has stolen election. One point two, Gina, this is known about Amazon. Managua wasn't about Robert Mugabe. It's about an unjust system. At present. It's about the overwhelming control that the military has in our society, and that is what needs to change. We've had thirty eight years of this in particular in the last two decades. We've had the military involved in the DRC involved in business. We've had them she involved in our own diamond fields. We've had the military involved in effecting the outcome of elections and swatting the the will of the people and that is the issue going forward. If we just accept the situation, we will result in it while they will result in in us having a military dictatorship innocence for the next ten twenty years. And if that is the case, Zimbabwe's potential will never be realized. Geiger's catchphrases Zimbabwe's open for business. But when he took over Nov. off to the ta-chou's and bubbas international debt was five billion US dollars..

"Lunch, but it's not clear what time that will be, who does have been camped outside. And the question is, what time will they file? Would they leave it to the last minute or will they will they file on time? So this this Mr. Mnangagwa is still going to go ahead as planned with the swearing in ceremony on Sunday. As he said, he would do. The invitations were sent out to various heads of states around the world, and we understand that fourteen had confirmed that they would attend. The government has always maintained that that Sunday date was tentative by law. They cannot go ahead with an inauguration. If the MDC alliance files, it's papers today because the traditional cool to might dispense with the case as soon as possible either today or tomorrow, but they have fourteen days to to give a judgement. So it's likely that if the NBC does go ahead and file that inauguration will have to be postponed. Until this matter is resolved in court, what to make of ten diabetes detention and subsequent release on bail. Well, this quite interesting that president Emmerson Mnangagwa wins out on Twitter yesterday and declared that he had intervened to ensure that Tendai BT was released. MS raised a lot of questions here assured some people that perhaps he wants to abide by the rule of law, but the other issue. Is that how the question is how much influence does he have on the judiciary that he can intervene in matters of the court as David Coulthard stay in via the MDC is hugely influential, especially Tim diabetes. He's a former finance minister. He's influential in Washington. He has the ear. So what happens now essentially depends on what happens in government in the courts here today, but also with the opposition will contest these results and what comes out instead and briefly still many challenges facing the new president? Absolutely. And one of his latest challenges a US President, Donald Trump has signed into. To law an amendment to the sanctions that were imposed on Zimbabwe in two thousand and one. Essentially, what they're saying is that the one they want free and fair elections, but they also want an improvement in human rights so that they can support any kind of financial assistance since you chips Shingai and he'll cut in Zimbabwe. Hundreds of flights with the budget airline Ryanair have been cancelled because of a twenty four hour strike by pilots in five European countries.

And as you can imagine, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity that unfortunately, we're not going to be able to attend. So we were given two days notice by Ryan. And when we looked on the website, there were no alternative flight. When I then cooled Rhianna they. Aren't able to give us an alternative route. And unfortunately, all of the other flights are in excess of four hundred pounds per person, and we just can't con justify Gavin Lee who's in Brussels reports on the scale of the.

"Plummeting lira even further, there's an overwhelming concern amongst Turkish people because the country seeming to be in full blown currency crisis. At the moment, the also at the brink of an economic crisis, the Turkish people will need to be reassured. Rebecca kes- be spoke to selene in estan, boo, and asked her for the latest. The latest crisis has been triggered by a rift between Washington and on cadre over the arrest of a US pastor Andrew Brunson. He has been jailed since last year and Washington was expecting him to be released in the latest hearing, but he wasn't and then sanctions imposed by Washington followed, and he was put on house arrest. There have been negotiations and talks held between the two countries, and there has been pressure put on Turkey for this passes release. But Turkey wants to apparently use Mr. Brunson as a bargaining chip as an exchange and two for prisoner exchange, for instance, and in on cut, it doesn't back off. That is why the rift has been strengthened and deepened and we have seen the lira full to record lows. All time lows.

This is the word the minister used when he spoke to the BBC that the government in Zambia says, they've denied him political asylum, and they say they're just kicking keeping him in safe custody until dozen. Bob wins tell them went to bring him home, right? So he may have to go back to him Bob way back to Harare. And as we heard from the law, they're worried about what will happen to him.

Remember, he is James as you know, he's a former finance minister in the unity government with Robert Mugabe.

Although in defense of Imbaba government, they haven't said much about this whole saga since it began to unfold today the resume as hope before the election. I mean, you getting the firm sense now that things turning siren turning sour very quickly.

And then he said last week when the police entered that, remember that press conference that was. Disturbed by the police eventually carried on where the leader Nelson Chamisa was stating his disagreement with the results. He, the president said, oh, no, everybody has a right to speak. No one gave an order to those police. So people think that he is progressive his more open minded than Robert Mugabe wants. But in practice, when you look at what's going on at particularly this case, then you realize that the more things change the more they stay the same, Milton Nkosi here in Britain. Pressure is growing on the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson to apologize after he made comments about Muslim women wearing burqas. He argued in a newspaper column against Denmark's decision to ban the burqa in kneecap, but said they made women looked like letterboxes and Bank robbers. So far Mr. Johnson has resisted calls, including from the Prime Minister, Theresa may to apologize. He's been widely criticized by Muslim groups who.

So this is an operation could Vora phony. What is that? What are they looking for operation for a phony means opinions on or open somebody spent for mobile phone. So what they're doing is that they want all the information which is actually stored in people's phones. That's one and all the information which was hit during the last, how nice election. So what actually doing is that place? For instance, if you according for any particular political party, particularly the MP's. They went to see the information shared with the other members, and that's exactly what they're actually following because the rich of this is the fact that after each count in every polling station form with the results called a eleven was posted up outside the polling station before the votes themselves went off to Harare to be counted, and people took photographs of those forms and that forms the basis of the MDC legal challenge, which we understand will becoming very soon. Yes, definitely. And that's the kind of information who they want to destroy, and they also want to put fear into the people. We have that kind of information so that they can be a witness when we actually close to put.

Care what nobody, say I know who's behind it Parliamentary results gave victory to the ruling, Zanu PF, party in the first vote since. The removal of Robert Mugabe But the opposition says Zanu PF has rigged the election the result of the presidential vote is not yet known the opposition MDC alliance insists it's candidate Nelson Chamisa beat the incumbent president Emmerson Mnangagwa It's a problem three people have been killed Thus far as the government opened fire. With live rounds. On people who were protesting Okay Man In. Zimbabwe you can't tell me The British ain't. Got nothing to do with that don't. Care what you say For four nine two two seven zero three you gotta think you just got to take the time to think things through whatever they're at every, African country has some kind of. Colonial attachment of some kind of colonial parasite sucking. The blood out of it And if they don't get who they want through regular elections the what they do is they incite, the people or incite the government In call division he calls the people to find themselves You know in opposition to each other It's. Ridiculous but it is what it is we ain't been able to. Peop- out, what, they what they do I mean we we just ain't. Been able, to keep it out yet Anyway So a new Ebola outbreak is being reported in the Democratic Republic of Congo Health officials say the latest outbreak killed twenty people in the eastern part of the country where conflict is at its highest. Level just days after another thirty people died in an endemic in northwest Congo the. World Health Organization is sending experts vaccines and emergency supplies to the troubled region Don't know man Transportation Security Administration officials are considering no more passengers screenings and more than one. Hundred and fifty small and medium-sized US airports You okay we got to check the game you gotta check the. Technique right before nine eleven There were there were. No Real? Screenings at any airport right so now they're saying they're. Going to eliminate greetings screenings perhaps at one hundred fifty small and, medium-sized US airports Now that sounds like a problem right, but? It wouldn't be a problem if you realized that before. Nine eleven there were there were no screenings at all Anyway So this sounds like it's news would really is. Not do you? See that's the game CNN obtained documents saying the move to cut screenings at. Airports we're planes that fly out with sixty or fewer seats that would save one hundred fifteen million dollars annually That money could be used to improve security at large airports that's the argument It sounds like a. Setup to me It really does if they want to do another kind of nine eleven type thing and the best. Way to be, able to do that and you know they. Want to tighten down security even more so the best way to do that is to lose the security and if, the gate something happening and then saying Cedar Happened when you turned out, security we gotta turn it up real. Now so you can feel safe I'm just saying All right US military forces also on alert in the Middle East while Iran is expected to conduct a major naval exercises in the.

"This is James Menendez. With, NewsHour live from the BBC BBC well let's turn to. Zimbabwe every day after a landmark election the first since Robert Mugabe. Was asked it from power. Last year while vote counting is continuing we're expecting the, first results to come through about, now but speaking ahead of as announcements the headers Imbaba electoral commission, has insisted that being no vote-rigging Justice Priscilla mcgahn, Yara addressing reporters in the capital Harare absolutely confidence that you cheated Nobody lantern sure, this people commission will not The choice of the wound up Well let's join Andrew Harding in Harare Andrews be following the election for us for. The past few days Andro not she was talking that in the past, tense Accounting's presumably still going on and that's. What many people were worried about what are you hearing Well I'm at the headquarters, of the tallying official tallying by the Zimbabwe electoral commission we're waiting any moment for the first official results from. This election to come in that could happen at any moment. And yes as you heard that Zaki sang this is all going fine so far but we've had, a morning of real and Zaire rumors and just reports and planes that there has been rigging this is coming, from above all from the opposition MDC alliance there's been talk from them that this entire. Election is in the process of being stolen little earlier I spoke to a senior figure from the opposition. MDC, alliance Tendai Biti. The man who is leading those allegations and I asked him what evidence he had that this. Election might not be free things they've been in some areas where we. Didn't have a into a mainly because of. Resources they just stopped Pilots say so there is out from. Constituencies way is inconsistent with the provincial pittance enough to alter the overall resolve -solutely absolutely but not, withstanding Notre standing this against Muslim and got what is history Emmerson Mnangagwa is a former president of this country, so we are not going to allow loss standards when winter allows loose standards win to. To protect our food is we've been saying and we will be making announcement in the. Next few hours So. Allegations of shenanigans there but no hard proof yet and interestingly zen which is the electoral support network young group of independent NGOs have not backed up any of those allegations yet which have been made of course the four the official results come through we. Have to pay a lot of attention to those official results and key of course is going to be. The huge, international observer monitor mission presence, here allowed into the first time in years? They've been all over the country and it's really. To them that I think everyone's going to be looking pretty soon for some sort of judgment on whether these. Opposition, allegations are true or whether this election is broadly representing the will of. The people here notice the MDC been giving always, giving a news conference as we await those first results in asserting victory I mean that seems a bit odd doesn't it to be, to be coming out so early before we've got any indication It does it's either because they believe that this election, is being raped worried they. Want to get, their facts out first before the official version comes in remember the have been question marks about the objectivity of, the electoral commission here, that's been, voiced by, many people the other possibility. Is that the MDC concede the rural vote which is always been. The bedrock of support designing PF is starting to come in and they, are going to win this election and so they are. Getting their version out I either because they want to question the result they want to use it for bargaining purposes so it's a very tense difficult time now and I think we all need to be we need to keep cool heads listened to the. Official results listen to the election support networks and the official monitors out of course look into these allegations. That are, coming from the main opposition, I'm before listeners assume that we're going to? Get some sort of final result very Quickly is this going to take a long time this price of announcing those results Well from what we're hearing a lot, of these provinces are already finished counting so certainly from the parliamentary point of view the the election there of two hundred that. Could happen pretty quickly in the hours ahead. As for the presidential is. Crucial here that's where, the MDC really focusing their allegations that's where they're most worried the stakes are highest and the likelihood. Is, that, we won't. Get a firm results until baps either later tonight or tomorrow Andrew many thanks Southern Africa correspondent Andrew Harding joining us. Live from. Harare That.

"It was the first election in Zimbabwe since the removal of Robert Mugabe. But while the strongman is gone and voting is now complete. It remains to be seen whether the democracy that's Imbaba wins have been denied for so long can now finally began to sink its roots yet crease that what is his Imbaba in human rights lawyer, she has defended imprisoned journalists and opposition politicians sometimes even herself. We reached MS that wa in Harare. Miss Montoya. What's the atmosphere in Zimbabwe tonight? That is it a bit kind of life because of the speculations, the heads and been election like this basically since nineteeneighty the excitement is proud. Manifest time voters for the fifth time, people were able to listen to the politicians without as many restrictions. As we've seen in the past, what concerns do you have once the results start to come out headache because of the highest speculations that they will be changed Oviously we fear that if that doesn't happen, we could see bitter violence. If not a lot of violence, the will be the disputations that almost always accompany elections in Zimbabwe. And when people are disappointed in in this particular side of elections, we have a lot of young FaceTime time voters who may not have the patience of the older people election observers or saying it is just too early to judge. Whether today's vote was free and fair. Hair from your perspective, how did the voting seemed to go very difficult for me to say elections can be free and fair because the media period preceding election is in comm- old voting day has been calm. The majority to also voters I in rural areas, traditionally the one the brands of the violence during election time, and nobody is really gone out to say to them. It's a different election this time around. So psychologically there'd be no reason for someone in the rural areas to actually thing that it's okay to vote for someone other than Zanu PF because they're simply hasn't been enough advocacy around elections and the fact that people have now free to vote for whoever they want to vote for and PF. Of course, Robert Mugabe's longtime party for decades in deck. His former security minister now runs Zanu PF and the reporting so far suggest a Kohl's race between Zanu PF and Nelson Chamisa of the opposition MDC alliance. So help us understand more. The difference between the two options that's Imbaba wayans have been presented with. Current presidental day outgoing president has obviously the advantage of incumbency, if when power able to money relate load of things and in Zimbabwe, this state media or the public media is actually guided more as the ruling party media to extend it even win position wants to pay for Victorian material. It is not allowed to really freely heavy. It's messages go through the product medium. He can travel where you want is president because he's entitled.

"These are our main stories, the former president of Zimbabwe. Robert Mugabe says he won't back his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa in today's elections, at least one hundred fifty prisoners in northwest Cameroon have escaped after their jail was attacked by dozens of armed. Ben leading tourist firm is to stop offering trips to attractions that keep train and display can a Wales. Also, I see resistance will continue until the occupation is removed all female prisoners in jail, a strong. And I think everyone who stood by me while I was in prison. A sixteen year old Palestinian teenager speaks out after being released, following a jail sentence for slapping and kicking an Israeli soldier. Polls due to open in Zimbabwe and the politician capturing the headlines is the former President, Robert Mugabe the ninety four year old who was ousted from office last year, and he won't vote for Zanu PF the party. He wants lead or Emerson Managua the man who replaced him, but he says, he will accept the result of the election. I say. Yeah, it was. Regulation through or ever week saw ever party wins the day and is except God, Vic. Deportation is clear that Mr Mugabe prefers the opposition movement for democratic change and its leader Nelson Chamisa within hours of that Mr Mugabe's successor Emmerson Mnangagwa had issued a video address in response is clear. All the research is a deal with God. We get Knoller believe that using tissues, our tool transforms in bubbly and Bill our mission. The Jones is clear. You either worked from Gubbay under the guise of service or for a news and America's so after forty years in power and despite not featuring on the ballot paper, robot mcabe has entered the political fray. James Menendez asked Andrew Harding. Our Africa correspondent who's in Harari how his intervention. We'll go down with voters in some sense. I suppose the big thing is already happened. Robert Mugabe is out of power. The question that the larger question is whether Robert Mugabe was the problem or whether Zanu PF was the problem, and it's very hard to tell at the moment whether Zimbabweans a majority of Zimbabwe's already to let go of Zanu PF for all sorts of reasons because it's the party of liberation. The issues about land reform and the sense that in the countryside where two thirds of Zimbabweans still live Zonta PF has such a stronghold through tribal and local chiefs and through culture and tradition. That will be very hard for the opposition to break. We seen in the last few weeks here, this huge ground swell of young Zimbabweans and red shirts rallying in the cities in supportive, the MDC alliance, and it's given offensive inevitability to the opposition. They. Really think they're going to crack it this time. But I don't think it's that clear cut, and I think a lot will depend on on turnouts and remember army PF is a ruthless election winning machine. It's used violence, it's used rigging and who knows what it'll be up to the days ahead. But above all, it's good at getting its supporters out registered and to the polling stations, and that counts for an awful lot. And I suppose in some ways, this is just the start of a process if indeed that is what happens of rebuilding the country and in particular rebuilding the economy, whoever wins will have a huge challenge on the hand exactly and Emerson mnangagwa's the man who took over from Robert Mugabe last November extraordinary circumstances. He is selling himself as a pragmatist and those who think perhaps he can deliver say, look, this is an elderly man whose life and reputation have been tarnished by his association. Certainly. The last fifteen twenty years with Robert Mugabe. He's getting old Scholley Emmerson Mnangagwa wants to be the man who saves Zimbabwe, who puts it back on the road away from international isolation away from debt and poverty and the collapsed currency. So he has a motivating factor there burning at his feet. Can he deliver? It's going to be very difficult for him or for this opposition alliance, if it comes to power. I mean it's riddled with divisions. It's no experience of government. So either way as you say, Zimbabwe faces a long, tough battle. Andrew Harding in Harari, Robert Mugabe is the leader young Zimbabweans new for most of their lives. So what are they thinking now? But now she jiggle. Mazzi is one of them. Bob brightest young writers. Her latest book is a reflection on the removal of Robert Mugabe from pie last year. It's called these bones will rise again and James Menendez asked her..
